QR aircraft changes :

DOH-NCE: A319 -> A359 from March 31 on, 5x
DOH-CDG: B773 -> A35J from August 31 on, QSuite.

I guess it's the first services with these types to both Nice and Paris.

When no other countries around the world is going to militarily stop China and its subordinate fom abusing its citizens within its national boundary, it is unreasonable to expect those abuse can be countered with purely peaceful means.

Prague has not made sense for a long time given the shrinking of OK's network. Lufthansa will also serve other markets beyond eastern Europe, especially the Middle East.

Sounds these flights are chartered flights for this High end cruise company "Le Ponant"

They usually charter flights during summer for those kind of destinations (Kangerluassaq, etc)

Well Atlantic Airways will be launching Svalbard - Paris on July 1st with 3 weekly flights so that’s quiet the capacity for such an “exotic” route.

Marseille is jokingly known as “the biggest city in Comoros” with an estimated diaspora of over 120K Comorians. Demand is there. In fact almost 100% of passengers on board ill fated Yemenia Flight 626 from Sana’a to Moroni we’re connecting passengers from Marseille.

Same goes for the Malagasy diaspora which is in fact the biggest subsaharian diaspora in France. Little people know that since it is an “invisible” diaspora due to the fact that Madagascar is an ethnically and racially very diverse country and that contrary to most other diasporas they are “diluted” all over France (and I should know I’m 1/2 Malagasy and like most of my family, you could never tell by my skin colour).

Sadly, it seems as if the rumored China Southern route from PVG-NCE was just a rumor. I still live in hope for a direct connection to Eastern Asia. I wonder which airline would be the most likely to go ahead with such a route? Maybe Air China?

GreatDaneAirlines intends to fly from Aalborg to Nice from June using an Embraer E190:

One would have thought that Xi Jinping's visit to Nice with Macron last month would have helped materialize this new route.

Indeed. As an aside, does anyone here remember what aircraft he used for his state visit. A friend said there was an Air China tail and NCE, but couldn't identify which specific aircraft it was.

Air France is cutting about 15 short haul routes - some of the cuts have already been done
https://www.lesechos.fr/industrie-servi ... ue-1018475

Routes being (or that have been) cut include as mentioned in the article include
Paris Orly-Quimper
Paris Orly-La Rochelle
Paris Orly-Agen
Lille-Brest
Nantes-Montpellier
Strasbourg-Lille
Caen-Geneva
Rennes-Bruxelles
Slots at Orly will be recycled for use by Transavia

This includes Quimper-Orly, which means that Quimper would no longer have year-round scheduled flights - it would be left with just a summer seasonal to London-City (with BA) and also Figari in Corsica (with AF so presumably also vulnerable)
Can Quimper airport remain open for scheduled air service beyond the end of summer 2019 or will it end up reduced to something more minor like Lannion ?

A few weeks ago I was looking at flying RNS-BRU and noticed quite a few days the route is cancelled. This happened to me before with Air France Regional / HOP.

Whenever a flight has low loads, they just cancel the flight and route people via CDG/LYS.

AF regional operations are a mess. They should consolidate them in CDG so those provincial towns are also connected to the rest of the world.

I have flown the route many times and the flights were packed and often more expensive than the ORY alternative.

I'm impressed! It looks much more elegant in the mainline colours.

Air France is cutting about 15 short haul routes - some of the cuts have already been done
https://www.lesechos.fr/industrie-servi ... ue-1018475

Routes being (or that have been) cut include as mentioned in the article include
Paris Orly-Quimper
Paris Orly-La Rochelle
Paris Orly-Agen
Lille-Brest
Nantes-Montpellier
Strasbourg-Lille
Caen-Geneva
Rennes-Bruxelles
Slots at Orly will be recycled for use by Transavia

This includes Quimper-Orly, which means that Quimper would no longer have year-round scheduled flights - it would be left with just a summer seasonal to London-City (with BA) and also Figari in Corsica (with AF so presumably also vulnerable)
Can Quimper airport remain open for scheduled air service beyond the end of summer 2019 or will it end up reduced to something more minor like Lannion ?


Paris Orly - Agen is operated by Chalair (CE) since 07 JAN 2019 (OSP route)
Paris Orly - Quimper will be ended on 01 SEP 2019 (by Air France Hop) but restarted on 01 NOV 2019 on OSP route (we don't know by which airline for the moment)
Paris Orly - La Rochelle by Air France Hop will be not closed this year.

Air France ouvre un Paris – Séville

A partir du 1er juin 2020, la compagnie nationale française proposera un vol quotidien entre sa base à Paris-CDG et l’aéroport de Séville, opéré en Airbus A320 de 174 sièges. Les départs sont programmés à 12h30 pour arriver à 14h55, les vols retour quittant l’Andalousie à 15h50 pour se poser à 18h20.


This is Air France's first destination in Andalucia and their sixth in Spain after Madrid, Barcelona, Palma, Ibiza and Bilbao.

Must be some demands from CDG as they only feed Sevilla from ORY from now with TO.

France is the 1st nationality when it comes to international tourists in Sevilla: 1) France, 2) USA, 3) Italy, 4) UK, 5) Germany. It will probably help getting some connections to the US (that is why the rumoured UA EWR-SVQ) and to Asia or elsewhere in Europe.

https://www.sevilla.org/ayuntamiento/al ... re-de-2018

Francia se mantiene como la primera nacionalidad seguida de EEUU, Italia, Reino Unido y Alemania. Este último país es el que experimenta un mayor crecimiento de un 15% en los viajeros y de un 24% en las pernoctaciones.

UA announces daily EWR-NCE for S20 with a 767-300, 46 business, 22 premium and 99 economy.

Nice addition for NCE! This will complement Delta and La Compagnie.

I was surprised to see that AF is now down to once daily CDG-TLN vs the 2 daily since inauguration.

I have flown the route many times and the flights were packed and often more expensive than the ORY alternative.


CDG-TLN-CDG will be axed starting the winter schedule.

AF has just announced ORY-GVA for the winter season

This is Air France's first destination in Andalucia and their sixth in Spain after Madrid, Barcelona, Palma, Ibiza and Bilbao.

It’s a resumption, although the route was flown from ORY and not CDG by AF mainline in the past (from 2000 IIRC and during a couple of years). AF mainline also served briefly SVQ from TLS and/or BOD (not sure) during the failed « bases de provinces » experiment.

Are AF planning any training flights for their new A350 when they receive it, similar to the A380 and B787?
