More Air France flights on departure from the French regions
Thursday 11, November 2010
This winter, Air France is increasing the number of frequencies on departure from the French regions and is launching new routes both in France and Europe.
Between Nantes and Paris Orly, rapid connections to the French Overseas Departments.
This winter, there are 50 weekly flights between Nantes and Paris-Orly, with 4 daily flights on weekdays and 3 flights on Saturdays and Sundays. This route, operated by VLM Airlines, an Air France subsidiary with Fokker 50s equipped with 50 seats, provides passengers with daily connections in less than two hours between Nantes and Fort de France, Pointe à Pitre or Cayenne.
The Nantes-Milan route also benefits from 22% additional capacity and operates a daily return flight as well as a one-way flight on Saturdays and a return on Sundays.
On departure from Nantes, over 260 weekly flights are available, operated by Air France and its subsidiaries Brit Air, Régional and VLM. By signing a code-share agreement with Flybe, Air France has strengthened its presence in the UK and offers customers new routes on departure from France including flights from Nantes to Manchester starting on 7 December.
Toulouse linked to Düsseldorf and Hamburg, two major industrial cities in Germany.
Air France now operates flights to Düsseldorf and Hamburg on departure from Toulouse, which also has daily departures to Amsterdam, Milan, Rome and Geneva.
These daily non-stop services are operated by two Air France subsidiaries: Régional from Toulouse to Düsseldorf by Embraer 145 equipped with 50 seats and Brit Air from Toulouse to Hamburg by CRJ700 equipped with 72 seats.
Other new features on departure from the South West.
The arrival of the Embraer 190 equipped with 100 seats enables Air France to offer daily flights from Bordeaux to Rome and to increase capacity on this route by 40%.
Between Pau and Lyon, Air France is also increasing capacity by 5% by using the ATR 72 equipped with 70 seats on the lunchtime flight.
On departure from South West France, Air France offers 47 flights to five European destinations every week and 427 flights to eight destinations in Metropolitan France.
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.
