Due to the cloud of volcanic ashes of Mount Eyjafjallajokull (Iceland), French Civil Aviation Authorities (DGAC) orders the closure of Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly airports.
Flights departing from Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly airports are cancelled at least until Saturday April 17th at 12h00 UTC (14h00 Paris local time).
Suitable measures are taken as the situation evolves and updated information will be available on AF website.
Important: all flights departing from Paris are already fully booked until Sunday April 18th included.
Air France asks its passengers not to go to the airports.
Customers whose flight has been cancelled will be able to rebook their flight or obtain a refund.
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.
