Air France Adds Six Greek Destinations to Summer 2021 Flight Program

Air France on Monday announced additional routes to Greece this summer due to high demand.

In addition to its scheduled daily flights from Paris to Athens, the carrier will also connect Paris’ airport Charles de Gaulle with Thessaloniki, Mykonos, Santorini, Corfu, Rhodes and Heraklion (Crete).

“The Air France-KLM group is ready to meet the increased demand expected with the resumption of travel activity, by offering an expanded flight schedule covering Greece,” Yiannis Pantazopoulos, regional manager of the Air France-KLM Group for Athens said.

More specifically, Air France flights from Paris to:

  • Thessaloniki will run twice weekly during the June 4-July 4 period and then three times per week from July 14 until August 28
  • Mykonos will operate three times a week, from June 1 until July 3 and then twice weekly from July 12 until August 25
  • Santorini will be served by four flights per week during the May 31-July 4 period and then by daily flights from July 14 until August 25
  • Heraklion will begin on April 17 and run until October 30, with flights expected to operate daily from June until August
  • Corfu and Rhodes will operate in July and August with four flights per week for each destination.

“Our flight program for this summer will spread to all four points of our country, covering the North with flights to Thessaloniki, the South with flights to Heraklion, the East with flights to the Dodecanese and Cyclades and West with flights to Corfu,” Pantazopoulos said.

In addition, during high season (July-August) Air France is expected to serve the Paris-Athens route with up six flights on a daily basis.

According to Pantazopoulos, Air France is also expected to soon announce flights to the Greek capital from several regional cities in France.

“After a very particular year for the aviation and travel industry in general, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Greece is still among the most popular destinations of our passengers… With the rate of vaccinations increasing internationally, covering a large part of the population, we expect an even greater increase in demand, which we will aim to meet,” he added.

Before traveling, Air France advises passengers to visit to be fully informed on the restrictions that are in force in each country, especially with regard to COVID tests.

Moreover, to ensure the highest level of safety for its staff and passengers, Air France is following Air France Protect health measures, which include enhanced aircraft cleaning and disinfection procedures prior to departure, as well as temperature checks of passengers that board at specific destinations. All Air France passengers are required to wear face masks throughout their journey.
