Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 12 October 2010

 Air France is to launch daily A380 flights between Paris and Montreal from May 2011.

The Quebecois city will be the 4th destination served by the airlines A380s, after New York in November 2009, Johannesburg in February 2010 and Tokyo in September 2010.

With the A380, Air France can rationalize its frequencies on these busy routes by combining two flights which leave at similar times while offering the same seat capacity at a 20% reduction in operating costs. The main deck of the A380 boasts equivalent capacity of a Boeing 777-200 and the upper deck that of an Airbus A340-300.

Air Frances A380 is currently equipped with 538 seats, divided between three classes: La Premire (First), with 9 seats on the main deck, Business, comprising 80 seats on the upper deck, and Voyageur (Economy), with 449 seats divided between the two decks.

Starting next summer 2011, the A380s will be progressively equipped with Premium Voyageur, situated between the Business and Voyageur cabins, offering 9 seats in Premire, 80 in Business, 38 in Premium Voyageur and 389 in Voyageur.

In Canada, Air France and KLM serve Montreal, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver out of the Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Amsterdam-Schiphol hubs, with 64 weekly flights during summer 2010, during peak periods.
