Air France in Canada

Present in Canada since 1950, Air France links Paris-Charles de Gaulle to Montreal (Air France’s 2nd international destination with up to 4 daily flights), Toronto (up to 2 daily flights) and Vancouver (up to 1 daily flight) all year round.

This summer, Air France’s capacity to and from Canada will be 25% higher than before the COVID-19 pandemic. Air France will be the largest European airline in terms of capacity between Europe and Canada.

This new non-stop route is in addition to Air France’s daily bus service linking Montreal’s Pierre Elliott Trudeau airport to Quebec City, which is available free of charge to all passengers connecting from an Air France flight.

About Quebec City

Quebec City is the capital of the Canadian province of Quebec. Classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985, its historic centre – Old Quebec – is the only fortified city in North America.

Once the gateway to New France, Quebec City is now a buoyant city where festivals and major cultural events take place throughout the year. The exceptional natural parks in its region and in the east of the province are ideal opportunities to discover the beauty of Quebec’s great outdoors.

The French flag carrier is presently (until 28th February 2022) offering fully modifiable tickets for travel until 30th June 2022. Passengers can change their reservation free of charge, or request a refundable credit voucher if they no longer wish to travel. If the flight is cancelled by the airline, passengers have the choice of postponing their trip, requesting a full ticket refund or requesting a credit voucher, which is also refundable if not used.

Meanwhile, Air France recently unveiled a more environment-friendly Amenity Kit.
