Air France to launch new flights to Minneapolis and Kuala Lumpur

Air France is continuing the development of its international long-haul network with two new destinations in summer 2013: Minneapolis-St. Paul in Minnesota and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.

Flights from Paris Charles de Gaulle to both destinations will be easily accessible for UK passengers, with services from eight departure points across the UK and Ireland providing seamless connections to Air France’s global network.

From May 21st to September 1st 2013, Air France will operate seasonal flights to Minneapolis-St. Paul from Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport.

The route will be served by Airbus A340s and will be the 16th Air France destination in the United States.

This is in addition to the twice daily Amsterdam-Minneapolis route offered by KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.

Starting April 22nd 2013, Air France will operate three weekly flights to Kuala Lumpur from Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport.

This destination will be operated by Boeing 777-200.

Kuala Lumpur will be the 15th destination served by Air France in Asia.

This flight completes the flight offering between Europe and Malaysia, with the daily flight already operated by KLM to Kuala Lumpur.

Henri Hourcade, general manager Air France KLM UK & Ireland said: “With these new routes, Air France is offering its UK customers even greater opportunity to reach the world from the convenience of their local airport.

“With eight departure points throughout the UK and Ireland, passengers have an increased access to North America and South East Asia, be it for leisure or business purposes.”
