Air France children's charity North Atlantic flight

AIR FRANCE has decided to auction 380 seats on each of its two inaugural flights on the Airbus A380, operating from Paris to New York on 20 November and from New York to Paris on 21 November 2009.  These will be the first ever scheduled A380 flights across the North Atlantic.  This exclusive auction sale, the terms of which will be presented at a later date, will take place on the internet in October 2009 and will be available to all markets (France, United States and other countries).  The winners will travel on the A380 outbound inaugural flight to New York and return on a commercial flight.  Departures will only take place from Paris and New York.  The profits of this operation will be used to fund three humanitarian projects supported by the Air France Foundation for children in distress which since 1992 has supported over 500 projects in 67 countries.
