Air France has announced plans for a new route from Paris Charles de Gaulle to Phoenix, Arizona.

The French flag carrier will operate a three-times-weekly service from 23 May, 2024.

Flights will take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and will be operated by Boeing 787-9 aircraft, configured with three cabins (business, premium economy and economy).

Flight schedules are as follows:

AF068 departs Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) at 1010, arrives in Phoenix Sky Harbour International (PHX) at 1210

AF069 departs PHX at 1410, arrives at CDG at 0915 (next day)

Phoenix will become Air France’s 17th US destination and 24th in North America, following recent news of its route resumption to Minneapolis on 13 May, 2024.

The airline will also extend its Paris-Raleigh-Durham service (which it took over from Delta in October last year) into summer 2024, with up to seven flights per week operated by A350-900 aircraft.
