Air France Expands A380 Service to Los Angeles and Dubai

Air France has added two new destinations to its daily A380 service: Dubai, beginning December 5, 2011, and Los Angeles, beginning May 28, 2012.

Both new flights will depart daily from Paris – Charles de Gaulle (CDG) airport. In the summer of 2012, Air France will operate eight Airbus A380 aircraft from Paris – Charles de Gaulle (CDG) to Los Angeles, New York – JFK, Johannesburg, Tokyo, Montreal and Washington.

"We look forward to serving our passengers aboard one of our jewels to our two new destinations, providing even more comfort and relaxation, all with the differentiating 'Air France touch,'" said Bruno Matheu, commercial director for Air France.

The A380 has a capacity equivalent to a Boeing 777-200ER and an Airbus A340 combined, but with operating costs and carbon dioxide emissions 20 percent less.
