Air France has announced a new daily flight between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Glasgow international airport in Scotland as from late March and for the entire 2016 summer season. Flights will be operated by Airbus A318 with a capacity of 131 seats.
“The launch of flights to Glasgow next summer highlights our desire to serve growth markets”, said Frédéric Gagey, Chairman and CEO of Air France.
The daily service will launch on March 27, with departures from Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 7:30 and arrivals in Glasgow at 8:15. The return flight AF1057 leaves Glasgow at 9:00 and arrives at Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 11:50.
On departure from Glasgow, Air France customers can benefit from optimized connections to Air France’s entire medium and long-haul network from its hub at Paris-Charles de Gaulle.
This new offer of Air France flights is in addition to the four daily frequencies operated by KLM Royal Dutch Airlines between Glasgow and the Amsterdam-Schiphol hub.
“These new flights from Paris will expand our offer to Scotland, a region with a strong appeal, both from an economic and a tourist point of view”, Mr Gagey added.
