Air France customers can connect long-haul via Paris CDG thanks to three new European routes.
From May 26 Air France will add Bergen, Cork and Wroclaw (western Poland) to its network.
All routes will be served by a single daily service.
Flights from Bergen and Cork are especially timed for connectivity with long-haul services (North America excepted) departing Paris CDG.
Readers may ask why because the services from Bergen and Cork arrive into CDG rather late in the day.
But that is because they are aimed at travellers making long-haul connections because the CDG curfew is more relaxed than those at London Heathrow/Amsterdam/Frankfurt with the final flights leaving later.
Schedules for flights departing Paris CDG and returning from the cities in question are:
- AF1252 1440-1655
- AF1253 1740-2000
(Note: Paris-Bergen-Paris timings vary slightly on Tuesday and Saturday)
- AF1094 1455-1555
- AF1095 1630-1920
- AF1368 0945-1140
- AF1369 1215-1410
Wroclaw is an interesting destination. Until a couple of years ago it was neglected by conventional airlines with air service restricted to budget carriers.
But as the city has flourished and expanded we now see major carriers instigating air services (although to date British Airways is not one of them).
Flights to Bergen and Wroclaw will be operated by Air France mainline. The Cork service will be operated by Air France’s Hop! regional subsidiary.
