Proud of our rich and successful history, we continue to strive more than ever-toward an even brighter future. Today, we take you to even more destinations around the world. And 80 years after our founding, we are proud to bring our French-style service excellence to new heights.

In celebrating our 80 years, we also thank you for your trust and loyalty. Your complete satisfaction is, and will remain, at the heart of all our efforts. Air France´s history is one we have written together!

On October 7 and throughout the rest of the year, relive all 80 years of adventure!”
