Air France has taken delivery of its fourth A350 aircraft, and has confirmed which routes will be served by the next-generation aircraft this summer.
The aircraft marked the 350th A350 to be delivered by Airbus, and has been given the name Nice (joining previous deliveries Toulouse, Lyon and St Denis de la Reunion). It is set to be rostered onto Air France’s Paris-Bamako-Abidjan route.
A total of six long-haul destinations will be served by the carrier’s A350 this summer (between March 29 and October 25):
- Bamako and Abidjan (one flight daily)
- Bangkok (three flights per week)
- Atlanta (one flight daily)
- Boston (one flight daily until May 4, then two flights daily)
- Washington: one flight daily from June 5
Air France is set to take delivery of a total of 38 A350s by 2025. The aircraft is configured with a total of 324 seats, with 34 in business class, 24 in premium economy, and 266 in economy.
Business Traveller reviewed the business class service on Air France’s A350 last year, on its inaugural flight between Paris CDG and Toronto.
