Cheap Air France Flights

Once the national carrier of France, Air France has since merged with Dutch airline KLM and is now merely a subsidiary of the larger Air France-KLM corporation. Air France has its headquarters at Charles de Gaulle International Airport in Paris, and these are now the headquarters for the parent company (Air France-KLM) as well. Air France flies to almost 190 destinations worldwide on the continents of Africa, Asia, Europe, North America and South America and also to French Polynesia in the South Pacific.

After Air France took over KLM in 2004, the merger created the third-largest airline company in the world in terms of passenger traffic. While the two airlines are linked now by a parent company, each continues to operate under their respective individual names.

The partnership with Dutch airlines don’t stop with KLM, either. Air France is reportedly going to begin a new budget/charter airline to be based at Paris’ Orly in a partnership with the Dutch Transavia. The new airline (rumored to be called Air France Soleil) is set to begin operations in the Spring of 2007 flying to the Mediterranean and North Africa.

Though Air France operates most of its international flights out of its headquarters at Charles de Gaulle International Airport in Paris, it does have some international flights at Orly Airport in Paris, Lyon-Saint-Exupéry in southeastern France, and Nice on the Côte d’Azur.

Air France is part of the SkyTeam airline alliance.
