Head to Asia this summer with Air France


With new frequencies and new routes, capacity to Asia is increasing by 10 percent this summer.


A new route on the Asian network

The launch of the route to Phnom Penh, on 28 March 2011, will strengthen the Air France network to Asia: the Cambodian capital will be linked to Paris with 3 weekly flights, via Bangkok.


In total, there will be 15 destinations served by Air France in the Asia Pacific region this summer.


Flights to Vietnam now non-stop

Air France will now be operating non-stop flights to Vietnam. Services to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City used to operate via Bangkok up to last summer, but the two Vietnamese cities will now be served non-stop from Paris. In this way, there will be five weekly Air France flights from Paris to Ho Chi Minh City, with three frequencies operated by Air France and two on a code-share basis with Vietnam Airlines. There will be three weekly flights from Paris to Hanoi thanks to the code-share agreement with Vietnam Airlines.


Three daily flights to India

Air France's increase in capacity to Asia is the continuation of a trend started this winter: the addition of a seventh frequency to Bangalore, launched in November, is continuing this summer. The daily service to Bangalore comes in addition to the daily flights to Delhi and Mumbai, making a total of 3 daily Air France flights to the Indian sub-continent.
