Starting on October 24, 2017, Air France will begin operation of five weekly flights connecting Chicago’s O’Hare’s International Airport and Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport. Passengers will be flying in an Airbus A330, equipped with 208 seats—40 in Business, 21 in Premium Economy and 147 in Economy.

AF136 leaves Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 1:10PM (13:10 local time) and arrives in Chicago at 3:30PM (or 15:30) local time. AF137 leaves Chicago O’Hare at 5:10 PM (or 17:10) local time and arrives back at Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 8:30 the next day. Flights operate on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Air France is excited to begin service to the Windy City. Chicago is the third largest city in the United States, as well as a world capital of jazz and the birthplace of the Chicago blues. Chicago also sports a dynamic night life steeped in history such as the life of Al Capone. The city’s business district and cultural center known as The Loop has modern towers designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, Frank Gehry and Renzo Piano standing abreast with traditional red brick skyscrapers.
