Air France Outside Paris

Hi. Earlier I had a debate with a colleague about Air France operations outside Paris. I argued that they operate very little (if at all) internationally from regional airports within France. Could someone confirm the extent to which the carrier does fly internationally from French airports other than Paris.

Thanks.


Proud to fly from Manchester!

All are code-share flights operated by KL, SU, AZ, I think that AF does not code-share anymore with AT and for sure not anymore with TU. No AF flights from NCE to LIS, only TP and no code-share

The same, code-shares operated by OK and KL. AF offers flights from MRS to TUN and ALG, not sure about CMN. No flights to Marrakech. AF doesn't fly anymore to Marrakech, now it is Transavia from ORY.

AF has a strong regional hub at LYS, using a mix of ERJ and CRJ. No flights to Geneva for sure! It's only 1h by road.

Recently AF has a plan to start again , very soon, operations with A320s from TLS, NCE, MRS, BOD to domestic destinations and to Europe.

Air France doesn't operate any long haul flight from elsewhere in France than CDG but AF has a dense international network from various French provincial cities (NCE, LYS, MRS, BOD, TLS, SXB, NTE, CFE) to European and North African cities.
Most of these flights are operated by AF subsidiaries REGIONAL, and/or BRIT'AIR.

All AF domestic & International network from the regions can be found here :

The only AF flights not starting or ending in Paris that I can think of, are the ones linking French territories in the Caribean and MIA (via several other islands using 5th freedom rights).

They had the odd LAX-LHR on behalf of Delta when Open Skies was approved but was later dropped. There was also a rumor here on A.net suggesting that AF could do all the LHR-JFK flying (as they do on CDG-JFK) due to their F class, but didn't materialise in the end.

Of course, as PacNWjet says, there is a lot of AF-branded flying from all over France but it's carried out though franchise agreements on Britair, Régional. The Irish carrier Cityjet also does some AF-coded flights from LCY to several airports in France and Europe.

It is also important not to forget the Caribbean network. After all, Guadalupe and Martinique are both part of France (what we call the DOM) and hence the AF network does have international destinations from PTP and FDF to places like PAP, MIA, etc.

No Lyon-London, but there is a Lyon-Birmingham operated by one of AF's regional subsidaries

In a way, AF does "operate" NCE-JFK. Yes, I know the paint job on that plane is DL, but because of ATI, AF views it as their "own" flight. They even list it on the map on the link you gave.

I haven't been to France yet but wouldn't the 320 be better to serve these routes instead of using the 380? i suppose it might carry more pax and save the airlines money in fuel but i just can't get it out of my mind how such a short distance it is on my World Map in my room.

I'm not sure what you're quoting in PacNWjet post, but if you're referring to the Paris-London A380 flights last summer, those where training flights for the crew (carrying lucky passengers).
