Successfully launched in Marseille in October 2011, the Air France offensive in the French provinces will be extended to Toulouse and Nice in spring 2012, followed by Bordeaux later in 2012.
By summer 2012, Air France will be operating more than 1,200 weekly flights on departure from Marseille, Toulouse and Nice, with a redesigned system to strengthen its competitiveness.
On departure from Toulouse, 16 new destinations
Starting on 1 April, on departure from Toulouse, Air France will be flying to 16 new destinations in Europe and the Mediterranean, in addition to the 12 existing destinations. Among the new routes, customers will be able to discover Istanbul, Prague and Tunis.
There will be a total of over 430 weekly flights to 28 destinations to and from Toulouse.
6 new destinations on departure from Nice
As from 3 April, on departure from Nice, Air France will be flying to 6 new destinations, including Barcelona, Istanbul and Tel Aviv.
Over 330 weekly flights will be on offer to 22 destinations on departure from Nice.
On departure from these two cities, Air France will be offering very attractive one-way fares starting at €50 including tax. On board, passengers will be able to enjoy the same services to which they are accustomed on Air France flights: a free drink and snack, a selection of French and foreign newspapers available free of charge at the boarding gate, one piece of checked baggage in the hold and one piece of cabin baggage free of charge, online check-in and choice of seat, as well as attentive staff throughout their trip.
“Air France’s challenges on its medium-haul network are considerable: the airline needs to strengthen its competitiveness and continue to develop its operations. Air France has strong potential for success with this project: skilled and motivated staff, a young fleet and a constantly developing network” declared Alexandre de Juniac, Chairman and CEO of Air France.
With more sustained activity on departure from Marseille, Toulouse, Nice and Bordeaux, Air France intends to benefit from productivity gains that will help to reduce its production costs. Productivity gains will be achieved with a rationalized and optimized use of aircraft, with cabin crew based in the provinces who will carry out more flight hours and with greater operational efficiency on the ground thanks to this additional activity.
