Discover the Wonders of France with Air France’s New Nonstop Phoenix-Paris Flight

Experience the magic of France’s rich history, exquisite cuisine, and breathtaking landscapes. Now, with direct flights from Phoenix, your dream Parisian adventure is closer than ever.

Yesterday marked a significant milestone for Phoenix as Air France inaugurated its new nonstop service between Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and Charles de Gaulle International Airport in Paris, France. This is the first time there has been nonstop service connecting Phoenix and France, creating an exciting new avenue for travel and commerce.

Operating three days a week on the Boeing 787-900 Dreamliner, the service is scheduled for Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays throughout the summer season. Flights will leave Paris at 10:10 a.m. and arrive in Phoenix at 12:10 p.m., then depart Phoenix at 2:10 p.m. and arrive in Paris the next day at 9:15 a.m.

“Adding nonstop service to Paris is a major milestone that demonstrates our commitment to providing convenient and efficient travel options to and from Phoenix,” said Mayor Kate Gallego. “As our city continues to grow and become a destination for booming industries, I’m confident that direct service to Paris will unlock exciting possibilities for exploration and new business opportunities.”

The aircraft boasts a three-class configuration, featuring 30 Business seats, 21 Premium Economy seats, and 228 Economy class seats, accommodating a total of 279 passengers. During the 2024 summer season, Air France will offer connecting opportunities to over 200 destinations worldwide from its Paris-Charles de Gaulle hub.

“Air France is thrilled to announce a direct link between Arizona and Paris with our newest nonstop route coming in May,” said Boaz Hulsman, Vice President of Commercial, North America at Air France-KLM. “Becoming the 22nd North American gateway for Air France next summer season, this new service symbolizes our commitment to enhancing the transatlantic travel connection. We look forward to soon providing passengers from Phoenix with an experience embodying the best of French elegance.”

Vice Mayor Debra Stark expressed her excitement about the new service, stating, “The new air service from Phoenix to Paris is exciting, as this will provide a direct connection to do business or vacation in Phoenix. Phoenicians will also have more convenient options for travel in Europe. No doubt, this new global connection will have a positive impact on our economy.”

America’s Friendliest Airport® already offers nonstop service to more than 140 destinations across the United States and internationally. This new service adds to the existing transatlantic routes between Phoenix and London Heathrow on American Airlines and British Airways, as well as nonstop service between Phoenix and Frankfurt on Condor Airlines. The new service will also allow for easy connections in the U.S. with Air France’s codeshare partner Delta, and to destinations in Europe and beyond with their other partner, KLM.

Phoenix international flights contribute more than $3.4 billion to the local economy each year, according to the airport’s most recent economic impact study. This three-times-weekly nonstop seasonal service will provide a $30 million annual economic impact to the Phoenix community.
