Air France and KLM to operate 47 weekly flights to/from Canada this winter

TORONTO — It will be a busy winter indeed for Air France and KLM, which will operate 47 weekly flights between Canada and Europe beginning Oct. 30 and ending March 25, 2017.

The airline will be flying between Montreal and Paris 12x/week, and once daily out of Toronto. Plus, there’ll be three departures per week for the direct Vancouver-Paris flight inaugurated in 2015.

New this season, Air France’s Montreal-Paris service now departs at 18h25 and 21h45. The airline will also begin introducing its ‘BEST’ seats on Montreal flights in February. Many Toronto flights will be equipped with the new seats too, and effective Nov. 23, so too will all flights out of Vancouver.

Passengers from the Quebec City area will continue to benefit from Air France’s free daily shuttle service from Quebec City, connecting them with departures on flights 344/347 at Montréal-Trudeau, and shuttling them back to Quebec City upon arriving on flight AF344.

The KLM Royal Dutch Airlines’ winter schedule offers one daily departure from Toronto, six weekly flights from Calgary, five from Montreal, four from Vancouver, and three from Edmonton.

New this season, Calgary travellers will fly aboard a Boeing 787-900 Dreamliner five days out of six. Effective Oct. 31, they will go through the airport’s new Terminal D. All flights to Toronto and Calgary will be equipped with the latest version of the World Business Class seats.

Both airlines incorporate a connecting shuttle bus service to Montréal-Trudeau for Ottawa residents flying KLM or Air France. In addition, the code share agreement with WestJet makes it possible for passengers from 20 Canadian cities, including Victoria, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Quebec City and St. John’s, to avail themselves of connecting Air France or KLM flights out of Canada.
