Yesterday Air France latched its Business class service to customers on its domestic network, on departure from Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Paris-Orly and the French regions, which will also be available on short-haul flights connecting the French regions to international destinations.
With this move upmarket, Business class customers with a connection on a long, medium or short-haul flight to or from the French regions will now enjoy seamless Business class service at no extra cost throughout their trip.
For travel within France, there is three types of fare:
- Business Leisure: non-refundable ticket, modifiable for a fee of €70;
- Business Flex: refundable ticket, modifiable at no extra cost;
- Business Abonné: refundable ticket, modifiable at no extra cost, including an option to take an earlier or later flight.
Each booking class has just one fare and the same conditions. Also, the purchase of an upgrade from the Economy cabin to the Business cabin will be available at the opening of flight check-in, 30 hours before departure.
