AIR FRANCE

About AIR FRANCE

The flag carrier of France, Air France (stylized as AIRFRANCE), is based in Tremblay-en-France. It is a founding member of the SkyTeam global airline alliance and a part of the Air France–KLM Group. Air France serves 36 destinations in France and offers scheduled passenger and cargo services to 175 destinations in 78 countries (93 of which are French overseas departments and territories) as of 2013. In 2019, Air France carried 46,803,000 passengers. Charles de Gaulle Airport serves as the airline's worldwide hub, with Orly Airport serving as the principal domestic hub. Air France's corporate offices, which were once located in Montparnasse, Paris, are now housed on the grounds of Charles de Gaulle Airport, which is located north of the city.

On October 7, 1933, Air France was founded when Air Orient, Air Union, Compagnie Générale Aéropostale, Compagnie Internationale de Navigation Aérienne (CIDNA), and Société Générale de Transport Aérien merged (SGTA). It was one of the three main Allied scheduled airlines operating in Germany during the Cold War, from 1950 to 1990, at West Berlin's Tempelhof and Tegel airports. It bought French domestic carrier Air Inter and international rival UTA – Union de Transports Aériens – in 1990. Prior to its 2003 merger with KLM, it operated as France's major national flag carrier for seven decades.

Air France and its regional subsidiary Hop transported 51.4 million people in 2018. On long-haul flights, Air France uses a combination of Airbus and Boeing widebody jets, while short-haul routes are served by Airbus A320 family aircraft. On November 20, 2009, Air France began flying the A380 from Paris' Charles de Gaulle Airport to JFK Airport in New York City. A fleet of regional jet aircraft is used by Air France Hop (previously HOP!) for the majority of its regional domestic and European scheduled services.
