Air France is making it even easier to travel from the New York metropolitan area to Paris, with the launch of a new direct route from Newark to the Charles de Gaulle airport in the French capital starting December 12.
"This daily flight marks the return of Air France to Newark, a historic destination served by the airline with non-stop flights until 2012," reads an official press release about the update.
The year-round flight will be operated by a Boeing 777-200 carrier, with a capacity for 280 passengers (40 in business, 24 in premium economy and 216 in economy) and Wi-Fi connection on board.
Time-wise, the flight will depart Charles de Gaulle at 12:30pm and arrive at Newark at 3pm. The opposite route is scheduled to leave the New Jersey airport at 5:05pm and arrive in Paris at 6:05am the next morning.
The news comes just a few months after the airline announced the debut of a new shuttle service from Charles de Gaulle to New York-John F. Kennedy, encompassing six daily flights operated by Air France and two additional ones by its Skyteam alliance partner Delta Air Lines.
This is all to say: it's now easier than ever to travel to Paris. So what are you still waiting for? Book yourself a European getaway before summer's end.
