For carefree travel, simplify your arrival at the airport by proceeding directly to the boarding area.
Air France simplifies your travel arrangements, by giving you the option of automatic check-in, on flights to and from Metropolitan France, Europe and North Africa*.
For all online bookings made on www.airfrance.com, Air France checks you in on your flight, and automatically sends you your boarding pass by email 30 hours prior to departure at the mail address indicated in your reservation file.
At any time up to your latest check-in time, if you want to change your seat, simply log on to the site’s online check-in application to access the cabin seating map, and select a different seat.
Go one step further by opting to receive your boarding pass directly on your mobile phone
Whether you’re at the office, in a taxi, or sitting at a street cafe, check in wherever you are and save time at the airport! On many Air France destinations, you can receive your boarding pass directly on your mobile, by email, MMS or SMS** via the Air France mobile site http://mobile.airfrance.com
On your arrival at the airport, your electronic boarding pass is valid for baggage drop-off, passing the security checkpoints, gaining access to the lounges and the duty-free shops. And if you don’t have any baggage to check in, you can proceed directly to the boarding area. Considerable time savings for stress-free travel!

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
