Air France Expands Service to Canada In Its Summer 2022 Schedule

LONDON – Air France has announced increases in its services to Canada with the addition of service to Quebec City and added frequencies on existing Canadian routes.

Current Canadian destinations include Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver.

New destination


Beginning May 17, flights from Paris-Charles de Gaulle (CDG) to Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB) in Quebec City will be flown three times a week.

Quebec City, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the capital city of the Canadian province of Quebec. Old Quebec, the city center, is the only fortified city in North America.

Quebec City is Air France’s fourth Canadian destination. This summer, the airline will also increase its service to:

  • Pierre Elliot International Airport (YUL) in Montreal:
    • Up to four flights a day
  • Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ):
    • Up to twice a day
  • Vancouver International Airport (YVR):
    • Up to once a day

These flights will be operated year-round.

Air France will operate these flights with an A330-200, with 224 seats (36 in business class, 21 premium economy, and 167 economy).

Inside, the passengers can enjoy Air France’s newly redesigned travel cabins. In addition to Wi-Fi onboard, all seats are featured with Air France’s entertainment system with over 1,000 hours of video content, USB sockets, and improved seat comfort for long-haul travel.

The announcement makes Air France the leading European airline between Europe and Canada in terms of capacity.

At 25% higher capacity to and from Canada compared to before the pandemic, the country is Air France’s second-largest long-haul market in terms of available seats.

Summer schedule


While their full summer schedule hasn’t been announced, Air France is gearing up for a busy summer. Also recently announced, the airline will be increasing seasonal summer service from Lille-Lesquin Airport (LIL) this year.

The seasonal connections include:

  • Ajaccio Napoleon Bonaparte Airport (AJA):
    • Up to two flights a week
  • Bastia Poretta Airport (BIA):
    • Once a week
  • Biarritz Airport (BIQ):
    • Up to four flights a week
  • Calvi Sainte-Catherine (CLY):
    • Once a week
  • Figari-sud Corse Airport (FSC):
    • Up to two flights a week

What remains clear is that Air France is ready and geared up to offer considerably more capacity based on enhanced demand especially as we come out of this pandemic.
