Starting 4 May 2015, in response to high market demand, Air France is strengthening its network in North America with a new seasonal service to Minneapolis-Saint Paul. The Company will thus operate direct flights to a particularly attractive destination, both for business travelers and leisure customers. Moreover, the Minneapolis-Saint Paul hub also allows customers to benefit from easy connections throughout the vast network offered by Air France-KLM’s transatlantic joint venture with Delta Air Lines and Alitalia.

An Airbus A340-300 will be used for the flights, with a capacity of 275 seats (30 seats in Business, 21 in Premium Economy and 224 in Economy).
