Air France announced today that the airline will start flying between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Starting on March 25, 2018, Air France will fly up to five times a week between Paris and Seattle.
I haven’t been on an Air France plane in ages. However, I remember my transits in Paris (CDG) to well. Unfortunately not so good memories and they always include long lines. That might have changed by now. On the other side, this is great news for travelers flying to Paris itself without connecting to another destination. Air France is offering this flights as a joint venture with their Skyteam partner Delta Airlines.
Air France will fly a Boeing 777-200 equipped with Business, Economy Plus, and Economy Class. Depending on your days of flight you will either take Air France or Delta Airlines when flying on a Skyteam airline. See information below.
Flight schedules (in local time):
AF338: leaves Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 13:30, arrives in Seattle at 14:20;
AF355: leaves Seattle at 16:30, arrives at Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 11:10.
Flights operated on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
If you fly on a different day than above you will fly on a plane operated by Delta Airlines which will be as well an Boeing 777.
