These flights will be operated by Air France’s Airbus A350-900 aircraft featuring 34 lie-flat Business Class seats, 24 Premium Economy seats and 266 Economy Class seats for a total of 324 seats.

The flag carrier of France will directly compete with Etihad Airways, which also operates a daily flight between Abu Dhabi and Paris-Charles de Gaulle.

Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates. It is a vibrant city that is both historical and modern. The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the Qasr Al Hosn Fort and the Louvre Abu Dhabi, designed by Jean Nouvel and inaugurated in 2017, are all iconic examples of the artistic and architectural heritage of this exquisitely beautiful metropolis.

This winter, in addition to Abu Dhabi, Air France will also be flying to Beirut, Lebanon (daily flight); Tel Aviv, Israel (double-daily flights); Dubai, UAE (double-daily flights) & Cairo, Egypt (daily flight).
