As of today, Air France has resumed operating a daily service between Aberdeen International Airport and Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. Flights will be operated by Air France Hop, using an Embraer 170 aircraft, carrying 76 passengers.
The night-stop flight allows for a day return between the two cities, as well as providing a vital link to Air France’s global hub at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. Here, Scottish passengers will have the opportunity to connect seamlessly to almost 170 worldwide destinations on the Air France network. This reflects 85% of the airline’s usual global network and is subject to the lifting of travel restrictions.
In response to COVID-19, Air France has introduced new hygiene measures to ensure the health safety of all passengers and crew. Grouped under the ‘Air France Protect’ label, these measures include the compulsory wearing of surgical masks while travelling. For an overview of these measures, please see video here.
In addition, the air in the cabin is renewed every 3 minutes. The air recycling system on board Air France aircraft is equipped with “High Efficiency Particulate Air” or HEPA filters, identical to those used in hospital operating theatres. For more information, please view video here
