Just in time for spring jaunts to the Eiffel Tower, Air France has launched new nonstop flights between Dallas Fort Worth International Airport and Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport.
Air France will operate up to five weekly flights on the Airbus A330, equipped with its new Business, Premium Economy, and Economy cabins.
In a statement, Sean Donohue, CEO of DFW Airport, says that the route will continue to build on the ties between Dallas-Fort Worth and France.
"We met with Air France last summer and strengthened our relationship with Groupe ADP, operator of Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, with a new cargo partnership," Donohue says. "DFW Airport is growing faster than ever, and we're pleased to welcome Air France, offering more choices for our customers to reach key European destinations."
The new service follows a trade mission that Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings and Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price took to France, when meetings were held with Air France executives and Groupe ADP. Putting our tax dollars to work.
Anne Rigail, CEO of Air France, says she's delighted to inaugurate this new non-stop service to Dallas-Fort Worth, which is Air France's 13th destination in the U.S.
"The American market is of prime importance for the Air France-KLM group, which alongside its transatlantic joint venture partners, operates more than 270 daily flights between Europe and North America," Rigail says. "On flights to Dallas-Fort Worth, we are offering our customers a new travel experience on board our fully renovated Airbus A330s equipped with Wi-Fi, throughout the summer season."
The new non-stop service to Paris means DFW will offer 17 daily flights to nine European cities this summer. That's almost double the service from five years ago, when DFW had a mere nine flights to five destinations.
This summer will also mark the addition of two additional destinations, Munich and Dublin.
