Air France - COVID-19 Travel Advisory

 Updated 27 Aprill 2020

For latest updates refer:

The ongoing coronavirus Covid-19 crisis has forced us to reduce our flight capacity by up to 90%. This service reduction is currently expected to last until the end of May.

In addition, following the closure of Paris-Orly airport, all of our flights to and from Paris now operate to or from Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport. Connecting flights continue to operate as planned.

To help you to adjust your travel plans in light of the ongoing health crisis, we have put in place exceptional measures throughout our network.

Before making any travel plans, please contact the relevant national authorities to check entry and stay requirements in your destination and transit countries. We also advise you to make backup plans for both your travel and accommodation.

Please be advised that upon arrival in metropolitan France or its overseas departments, you must be able to present a certificate of exceptional travel to the authorities in charge of border control. This also applies if you have a flight connection in France. Visit the website of the French Interior Ministry to download the certificate.
Upon arrival on the overseas departments, you must also produce the supporting documents. The list of supporting documents is available on the Overseas Website.
