Air France to serve San Francisco with A380

The French flag carrier will join Lufthansa as the second airline to operate A380 flights to San Francisco, with a daily service over the summer period.

The carrier will offer daily A380 flights between Paris CDG and the Californian city from June 6 until September 4, departing Paris at 1030 and arriving at 1240. The return leg leaves San Francisco at 1610, landing back into the French capital at 1135 the next day.

Business Traveller understands Air France may make this new superjumbo service possible by redeploying its A380 aircraft operating on the Paris CDG-Tokyo route, as a result of the fall in demand for flights to Japan following the country’s earthquake and tsunami.

Lufthansa is set to become the first carrier to fly the A380 to San Francisco next month, with a daily service (replacing the current B747-400 on the route) starting on May 10 – see online news January 27 for more information.
