Air France, travel with a French touch

Air France's health commitment
The health and well-being of Air France customers and staff are at the heart of the company's concerns. Air France is committed to providing its customers optimum health and hygiene conditions at each stage of their trip, upon arrival at the airport:
- On board the aircraft and throughout the duration of the trip, it is compulsory to wear a surgical mask.
- The air in the cabin is renewed every 3 minutes.
- The air recycling system on board Air France aircraft is equipped with HEPA - High Efficiency Particulate Air – filters, identical to those used in hospital operating rooms.
- Air France has also reinforced aircraft cleaning procedures, notably with the disinfection of all surfaces in contact with customers such as armrests, tray tables and screens before each flight.
Air France's health commitment was recently recognized by the international rating agency Skytrax, which awarded the airline its COVID Excellence Award at the Skytrax World Airline Awards 2021.
Air France was also named Best airline in the Europe, Western Europe and France rankings.
Air France's new fleet
On 29 September 2021, Air France took delivery of its first Airbus A220-300, the company’s latest jewel in the fleet on its short and medium-haul network.
Since introducing the Airbus A350 on its long-haul network, the company is continuing its fleet renewal and by 2025 will have integrated the 60 A220-300s__ ordered in 2019 to gradually replace its Airbus A318s and A319s as well as several Airbus A320s. This order – the largest from a European customer – includes an additional mix of 30 options and 30 purchase rights.
Sustainably fuelling the future
The most innovative and efficient single-aisle aircraft in its class, the Airbus A220-300 is perfectly suited to Air France's short and medium-haul network. It provides a cost reduction per seat of 10% compared to the Airbus A318 and A319 and stands out for its energy efficiency, consuming 20% less fuel than the aircraft it replaces and its CO2 emissions are also reduced by 20%. Its noise footprint is also 34% lower. These characteristics will play a decisive role in reducing Air France's environmental footprint and achieving its sustainable development objectives.
By 2030, the airline will have reduced its overall CO2 emissions per passenger/km by 50% compared to 2005, or 15% in absolute terms.
New Lounge in Paris
In August 2021, Air France also unveiled a brand new iconic lounge located in terminal 2F at Paris-Charles de Gaulle. A lounge which invites to celebrate the best of French-style travel, upon arrival at the airport or during transit. Dedicated to Business customers and Flying Blue Elite Plus members travelling on
Air France's short- and medium-haul Schengen network, this lounge is one of the airline's largest, with a surface area of 3,000 sq. m. and 570 seats spread over two levels.
