Air France flights

Air France

Founded in 1948 and beginning with a weekly service to Paris, Air France as a fascinating history. During the Cold War from 1950 until 1990, Air France was one of only three main Allied airlines operating as in Germany from Templehoff and Tegel airports. Since those days Air France has gone from strength to strength. So much so in fact that it even has its own foundation (The Air France Foundation) that works with street children and those in need all around the world, donating a portion of profits to worthy causes. Air France was also the first to commission and fly the Boeing A380 – the world’s largest civil aviation aircraft!

Today Air France serves 36 destinations throughout France and operates worldwide passenger flights to over 168 destinations in 93 countries.
