Air France expands on the domestic front

Successfully launched at Marseille last October, the Air France offensive in the French provinces will be extended to Toulouse and Nice in spring 2012, followed by Bordeaux later in 2012.  By next summer Air France will be operating more than 1,200 weekly flights from the three cities

Starting on 1 April, Air France will offer 16 new destinations from Toulouse in Europe and the Mediterranean, in addition to the 12 existing points.  Istanbul, Prague and Tunis are amongst the new routes.  As from 3 April Air France will offer six new destinations from Nice, including Barcelona, Istanbul and Tel Aviv. 

Air France is taking the encroachment of the low-cost airlines very seriously.  On board, passengers will be able to enjoy a free drink and snack, a selection of French and foreign newspapers available free of charge at the boarding gate, one piece of checked baggage in the hold and one piece of cabin baggage, online check-in and choice of seat.

"Air France’s challenges on its medium haul network are considerable: the airline needs to strengthen its competitiveness and continue to develop its operations," declared Alexandre de Juniac, the new Chairman and CEO. www.airfrance.com
