Raleigh-Durham: gateway to the “Research Triangle”
Raleigh, the capital of North Carolina, is among the most dynamic cities in the Southern United States. A blend of tradition, history and modernity, it is nicknamed the “City of Oaks” for the many oak trees that line its streets. Raleigh, and its neighbouring cities Durham and Chapel Hill, are home to three prestigious universities, and together they form the “Research Triangle,” recognized nationwide as a hub of education, research and innovation. Second only to Silicon Valley in the US for advanced industries, Research Triangle Park is one of the leading high-tech research and development areas in the country.

This route was previously operated by Delta Air Lines, Air France’s partner in the transatlantic joint venture comprising Air France, KLM, Delta Air Lines and Virgin Atlantic.

In addition to the launch of the Raleigh-Durham service, the winter season will also see an increase in number of flights from/to Dallas-Fort Worth (Texas) from 3 in 2022 to 5 this year.

Canada: Up to 38 flights a week to 4 destinations this winter
Air France is also planning more flights higher north, from/to Canada. The top European carrier in terms of capacity between Europe and Canada, Air France will connect Paris-Charles de Gaulle to Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and Ottawa all winter.

The non-stop service between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Ottawa recently introduced on June 27 will continue for the winter season. The airline will operate 5 flights every week, Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, on a Boeing 787-9 equipped with 279 seats (30 in Business, 21 in Premium Economy and 228 in Economy).
