Air France continues to rebuild its service to the United States as it announces plans to resume its daily route between Paris-Orly (ORY) and New York City’s John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK) from March 27.

The reopening of daily service between the two popular destinations means France’s flagship airline carrier will be operating as many as seven flights each day from Orly and Charles De Gaulle Airports (CDG) to New York this summer.

The resumption of service from Orly gives passengers more options for visiting New York City and also to perhaps get better pricing on round-trip tickets. We found tickets from Paris-Orly to JFK this spring for around $400 nonstop for Air France’s Light tier, which permits passengers one small bag and a personal item. You also have the ability to change your ticket without penalty and refund on flights scheduled on or before June 30, 2022.

If you want to book a flight with points, Flying Blue members can book a nonstop economy ticket from Paris-Orly to New York in April for as little as 33,000 points. Keep in mind the taxes and fees for this are around $246.

Adding to its burgeoning U.S. portfolio, Air France’s seasonal service between Paris and Denver (DEN) returns in time for the summer season. Three flights per week will be offered from Charles De Gaulle airport to the Rockies from May 4.

This means the airline will operate nearly 200 weekly flights this summer to 14 different U.S. destinations. They are:

  • Atlanta (ATL)
  • Boston (BOS)
  • Chicago (ORD)
  • Dallas (DFW)
  • Denver (DEN)
  • Detroit (DTW)
  • Houston (IAH)
  • Los Angeles (LAX)
  • Miami (MIA)
  • Minneapolis (MSP)
  • New York (JFK)
  • San Francisco (SFO)
  • Seattle (SEA)
  • Washington, D.C. (IAD)

The flights represent a 20% increase over Air France’s service to the U.S. from the summer of 2019, before the pandemic. You can find more details about the frequency of flights, airfares and other details on the airline’s official website.
