Home

Nonstop flights to Paris will operate three days per week

DENVER – May 4, 2022 – Denver International Airport (DEN) celebrates the return of Air France to the Mile High City. Beginning today, the carrier will once again connect Denver nonstop with Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport (CDG). Flights will operate three days per week – on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

“We are excited for the return of Air France’s nonstop service to Paris, especially as we approach the busy summer travel season,” said DEN CEO Phil Washington. “We expect passenger traffic to reach historic highs this summer thanks in part to carriers like Air France who continue to invest in the Denver market, allowing us to expand our global connections and connect our passengers and community to Europe and beyond.”

Air France first inaugurated service between Denver and Paris in July 2021. Flights are scheduled to operate on Boeing 777200 aircraft.

“We are excited to resume Air France service to Denver as part of an overall increase in capacity connecting the United States to Paris and beyond,” said Eric Caron, Senior Vice President and General Manager, North America for Air France-KLM. “Air France is ready to welcome customers looking to travel and connect them to our global network of 196 destinations, as well as connect Europeans eager to experience the natural beauty, vibrant culture, and growing economy of Denver and its surrounding areas.”

France is one of the most important international tourism markets for the State of Colorado, ranking as the third- largest overseas market in terms of visitation. In 2019, French visitors accounted for seven percent of total overseas visitors to Colorado, just behind the United Kingdom and Australia.

“We are thrilled Air France is resuming nonstop service from Paris to Denver, providing French visitors easier access to the Centennial State,” said Colorado Tourism Office Director Tim Wolfe. “Colorado’s wide-open spaces, breathtaking hiking opportunities, historic railroads and our rich Wild West history are especially popular among French visitors.”

Air France was the first and remains the only carrier in the SkyTeam Alliance to operate nonstop transatlantic service to Denver. Through the Air France network in CDG passengers can access dozens of destinations across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
