SkyTeam Connects The Alps To The Rockies As Air France Adds Denver
Air France has announced a new destination from Paris-Charles De Gaulle (CDG) airport. Nonstop flights to Denver International Airport (DEN) are scheduled to start on July 2, 2021, and operate three days per week using a Boeing 787-9 aircraft.
In July Air France will become the 24th airline to serve DEN and will join SkyTeam Alliance members Delta Air Lines and Aeromexico at DEN. The Air France DEN-CDG service will mark the first time a SkyTeam Alliance carrier will connect Denver nonstop with Europe. The new flights, scheduled to operate through Oct. 29, are estimated to generate between $12 – $20 million in annual economic impact to Colorado’s economy and create up to 150 new jobs.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Denver ranked as one of the top 10 U.S. markets in terms of demand for travel to Paris. The Air France DEN-CDG service will provide a unique new option for travelers in summer 2021 as restrictions are eased. Travelers from France seeking access to National Parks and outdoor recreation will find Denver to be the perfect gateway to Colorado and the Mountain West. And Denver-originating travelers who are ready for transatlantic travel will have a new convenient nonstop option available, both reducing travel time to Paris and providing increased connecting options for further travel in the region.
