Air France is expanding its services to Canada, the airline’s second largest long-haul market in seats offered.

As from May 17, 2022, Air France will fly from Paris-Charles de Gaulle to Quebec City's Jean Lesage International Airport (YQB), with three weekly flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Flights will be operated by Airbus A330-200 equipped with the new travel cabins, with a capacity of 224 seats (36 in Business, 21 in Premium Economy and 167 in Economy).

Flight schedules (in local time) are as follows:

  • AF0352 : Leaves Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 13:10, arrives in Quebec City at 14:40
  • AF0353 : Leaves Quebec City at 17:00, arrives at Paris-Charles de Gaulle the following day at 05:45

“We are very proud to introduce this new direct flight from Québec City to Paris, bringing the number of Air France Canada destinations to four,” said Catherine Guillemart-Dias, vice-president and general manager of Air France KLM Canada. “We are delighted about this new service and the expanded opportunities it will foster for customers on both sides of the Atlantic to connect with family, cultural experiences and tourism options.”

The new non-stop route is in addition to Air France’s daily bus service linking Montreal's Pierre Elliott Trudeau airport to Quebec City, which is available free of charge to all customers connecting from an Air France flight.
