Air France is gradually reinforcing its flight schedule for summer 2020 as air traffic slowly picks up, by the end of June, Air France’s flight schedule will represent 20% of the capacity usually deployed over this period. With more countries lifting travel restrictions, the gradual increase in frequencies and destinations will continue, reaching 35% of the flight schedule initially planned in July and 40% in August. Air France plans to serve close to 150 destinations this summer, that is 80% of its usual network, with priority given on strengthening its domestic network, with the resumption of several services between Paris and the French regions, inter-regional routes, and the launch of seasonal routes, particularly to and from Corsica.

Long-haul services as part of the resumption plan will gradually resume on a large part of Air France’s network, both for passenger and cargo transport, which is particularly buoyant at the moment. Several routes will resume between Paris and the French regions, as well as inter-regional routes, particularly to and from Corsica. The number of services will also be increased to the French overseas departments and territories, as well as to Europe, mainly to Spain, Greece, Italy and Portugal.

The flight schedule will be operated by 106 of the 224 aircraft in the Air France fleet.


“We can see that people need to travel again and will gradually be resuming services to 150 destinations in France, Europe and the rest of the world this summer. After this difficult period, we are delighted to be welcoming our customers back on board, so that they can travel this summer and be reunited with their loved ones. All Air France staff, both on the ground and on board, are committed to guaranteeing our passengers the highest levels of health & safety”, said Air France CEO Anne Rigail.

Japan Airlines (JAL) yesterday revised its flight frequency plans for the month of October 2020. Starting October 2, JAL will reinstate service between Tokyo Narita and Guangzhou with a weekly frequency. 


According to Kyodo News, All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines announced on the 24th that they will resume some Chinese routes in the near future.

Currently, the two companies each have only one route to mainland China. Due to the adjustment of flight restrictions by the Chinese authorities, other routes will also be partially restored. This will be the first time scheduled flights to China have been resumed among the routes grounded after the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In addition to the current “Narita-Shanghai” route, ANA will resume the “Narita-Qingdao” and “Narita-Guangzhou” routes from September 30.

Flights to Shanghai are round-trip once a week, and ANA is discussing increasing the number of flights in the future.

JAL currently flying the “Narita-Dalian” route will also add the “Narita-Guangzhou” route from October 2.
