Delta, Air France Launch “Shuttle” Service Between Paris, New York-JFK
Starting in June, Delta Air Lines and Air France will partner to offer nine daily flights between Paris’ international airports, Paris - Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) and Paris - Orly Airport (ORY), and New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK).
This trans-Atlantic “shuttle” service will make travel between the two cities easier and more convenient. Together, the airlines will offer departures from CDG and ORY every one to two hours during the day and hourly departures from JFK starting in the later afternoon.
Air France will operate six daily flights from Paris-CDG to New York-JFK and one daily flight from Paris-ORY to New York-JFK with Boeing 777-300s and Airbus A350s. Delta will operate two daily flights from Paris-CDG to New York-JFK with Airbus A330s.
All nine flights offer at least three classes of service:
- Delta One® / Air France Business Class
- Delta Premium Select and/or Comfort+ / Air France Premium Economy
- Economy / Main Cabin
The Delta flights will offer Delta One, the airline’s premium cabin experience featuring lie-flat beds, artisan made amenity kits from Someone Somewhere, and sustainable products from Grown Alchemist, eco-conscious bedding, and more. Delta Premium Select, the airline’s premium economy cabin, includes more space to relax and stretch out with a wider seat, deeper recline, and an adjustable footrest and leg rest plus an upgraded amenity kit and noise-canceling headsets. Both cabin experiences will help customers arrive rested and refreshed.
Three daily Air France flights will also offer La Premiere, the airline’s award-winning first class that provides an unrivalled experience of privacy, comfort, and sophistication. Each La Première suite has a wide seat that transforms into a lie-flat bed more than 6.5 feet long. With Michelin-starred menus signed by Anne-Sophie Pic, a carefully curated wine and champagne list, a wide choice of entertainment on high-definition screens, and attentive service, all guests travel in optimal comfort and style.
This summer, Air France will offer an even greater capacity of trans-Atlantic flights than before the pandemic.
Air France will operate close to 200 weekly flights to 14 U.S gateways, 20% higher than what Air France operated in summer 2019. This includes the recent resumption of the Dallas-Fort Worth and Denver routes and the daily New York-JFK to Paris-ORY flight. Paris-Orly Airport offers travelers easy access to Paris and convenient connections to destinations in the south of France and beyond.
Delta is the largest trans-Atlantic carrier to New York-JFK and Boston, operating up to 27 daily flights from 20 European destinations to JFK this summer, including restarting pre-COVID service from Zurich, Brussels, Edinburgh, Copenhagen, and Prague. In Boston, Delta will operate up to nine daily flights from nine trans-Atlantic destinations, offering nearly 5,000 more seats each week compared with summer 2019.
