Air France will expand its destinations in Canada

Air France has announced that it will be expanding its destinations in Canada. The airline will launch a new nonstop flight between its hub at Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport (CDG) and Macdonald-Cartier (YOW) airport in Ottawa in June 2023.

Air France is expanding Routes in Canada.

Air France has increased its flights in Canada, operating three times weekly from Paris-Charles de Gaulle (CDG) to Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB) in Quebec City. Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport (CDG) and Macdonald-Cartier (YOW) airport in Ottawa will be the fifth destinations in Canada; the airline operations in Canada are:

  • Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport (YUL) in Montreal
  • Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB) in Quebec City
  • Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ)
  • Vancouver International Airport (YVR)

The service to Québec-Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB) will be operated thrice weekly from May 2, 2023, with Boeing 787-9 aircraft. The Ottawa route, the only nonstop flight, will be operated five times a week from June 27, 2023, with Airbus A330-200 aircraft fitted with 224 seats (36 in business, 21 in premium economy and 167 in economy class).

It’s not surprising to see Air France increase its operations in Canada. The last summer, we saw a massive demand for travellers worldwide, routes resumed, and new destinations launched. Some airlines had excellent quarters in the previous year; the Air France-KLM group posted a positive operating result of €1,024 million, up €897 million at constant exchange rates compared to 2021; Air France is a subsidiary of Air France-KLM.

Since last year Aviation sector has been facing many strikes, whether with the airports or airlines company. The industry also has labour shortages to resolve, and we hope both airlines and airports will be more prepared for this summer with all the inconvenience passengers had to deal with last year. They’re a piece of such great news for this summer. Finnair will also expand routes for this summer; the new destinations are Norway, Slovenia, and Italy.
