Air France has announced that its next US destination will be Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX). The new flights will launch from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) on May 23rd and run 3x weekly.

The year-round service will use a Boeing 787-9 with 30 Business Class, 21 Premium Economy, and 228 Economy Class seats. Phoenix will be Air France’s 17th destination in the United States. The others include:

  • Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL)
  • Boston Logan International Airport (BOS)
  • Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD)
  • Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW)
  • Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport (DTW)
  • George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH)
  • Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)
  • Miami International Airport (MIA)
  • Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport (MSP)
  • Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR)
  • New York John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK)
  • Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU)
  • Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC)
  • San Francisco International Airport (SFO)
  • Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA)
  • Dulles International Airport (IAD)

This will be the second transatlantic route served year round from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX). Currently, American Airlines and British Airways fly to London Heathrow Airport (LHR).

Anthony’s Take: I find Air France to be a great airline overall and I like that they’re continuing to grow in the United States. It will be interesting to see how they fare in one of American’s hubs (although they serve Dallas/Fort Worth and Miami just fine).

I really hope this is AA’s wakeup call to start more trans Atlantic service from PHX besides LHR. They could add CDG, DUB & PHX.
