Air France announced on January 22, 2024, it is launching a new nonstop route between its Paris-Charles de Gaulle (CDG) hub and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX) in Arizona, United States (US).  

The new thrice weekly service will start on May 24, 2024, departing Paris on Tuesdays, Thursday and Saturdays at 10.10am, with the return flight set at 2.10pm (all times local). 

Phoenix will become Air France’s 17th destination in the US, a first for the French flag carrier. Air France has also announced that it will resume its Minneapolis (MXP) service as well as the extension of the Raleigh-Durham (RDU) service through to the summer season. 

This new connection will be operated by a Boeing 787-9 aircraft, fitted with a three-class cabin containing 30 business, 21 premium economy and 228 economy class seats. 

Paris will become the third European city with a nonstop link to Arizona’s largest city, the others being Condor’s seasonal service to Frankfurt (FRA) and American Airlines and British Airways year-round services to London-Heathrow (LHR).  

Phoenix is a focus city for both American Airlines and Southwest, with both carriers and its subsidiaries and partners having a significant presence at Sky Harbor International Airport.
