Air France is increasing its flight frequency on the TLV-Paris route, adding a second daily flight starting March 28, with the new wide-body flagship Airbus A330-200.
With this new addition, Air France will increase its volume to 10 weekly flights in total, with two wide-body Airbus aircraft that the company will operate on this route, as follows:
Starting March 28, three weekly flights with an A330-200 aircraft:
- AF975 will depart from Ben Gurion Airport (TLV) on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday at 07:50, landing in Paris at 11:40.
- AF984 will depart from Charles de Gaulle (CDG) in Paris on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 21:10, landing in Tel Aviv at 02:40 (the next day).
One daily flight with the A350-900 aircraft:
- AF963 depart from Ben Gurion Airport (TLV) at 16:30, landing in Paris at 20:10.
- AF962 departs from Charles de Gaulle (CDG) in Paris at 09:25, landing in Tel Aviv at 14:40
“Using wide-body Airbus planes on the route to Tel Aviv has been Air France’s top priority in recent years, to upgrade the flight experience to Israel,” commented Alon Netah, Country Sales Director of Air France-KLM in Israel. “With the addition of the second flight, passengers will enjoy not only a better product but also a more flexible schedule. This decision emphasizes the airline’s commitment to and faith in the Israeli market and the desire to provide our customers with the best flight experience.
“The addition of the new flight will significantly increase the supply of seats in both aircraft on the Paris route and onwards to further destinations so that the Israeli passenger will be able to connect via Paris to almost anywhere in the world.”
According to Air France, all flights can be booked starting today through the company’s website or with travel agents. It was further reported that Air France is adjusting its sales policy in light of the ongoing pandemic to allow passengers to book a flight with complete confidence. This means that customers who need to change or cancel their trip will now be able to make changes without incurring extra fees (unless they change the class and/or destination). If they prefer, they can also request a refund using a voucher. These measures apply to bookings made by February 28 for all travel until June 30, 2022.
