Air France has announced plans for a new route between Paris CDG and the Colorado capital of Denver.

The carrier will offer up to three flights per week (Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays) from July 2, using a B787-9 aircraft configured with 228 seats in economy, 21 in premium economy, and 30 in business class.

The new route marks the first nonstop service between Europe and Denver by a Skyteam carrier.

There are currently no other nonstop routes between Paris and Denver – from the UK Oneworld member British Airways and Star Alliance carrier United fly between London Heathrow and Denver, while Star Alliance member Lufthansa also operates flights from Frankfurt and Munich.

The new service means that Air France will offer flights to 12 US cities during the forthcoming summer season: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, San Francisco and Washington DC.

There is a caveat though – the airline says that the flight schedule “is subject to change depending on travel restrictions”.

“Since the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis, Air France has been adjusting its offer in real time, taking into account changes in the health situation,” said the carrier. “Prior to any trip, Air France invites its customers to check the conditions of entry and the documents required on arrival at their destination.
