Air France brings back Paris-Vancouver flights
Wednesday 25 November 2020
VANCOUVER – Air France will resume direct service between Paris and Vancouver with two flights per week starting next month.
From December 14 to March 27, 2021, flights will see passengers aboard the Paris-Papeete flight, which makes a temporary stopover in Vancouver, replacing Los Angeles as the refueling stop on the route. This seat offer is limited to Vancouver-Paris-Vancouver travel and does not cover travel between French Polynesia and Canada.
“We are delighted to offer travelers who meet the criteria to enter France or any other destination in the world to which we fly, with this new option to do so from Vancouver,” said Catherine Guillemart-Dias, vice president and Managing Director of Air France KLM Canada. “It also gives companies that need to ship goods an additional alternative.”

Apart from certain exceptions, notably visa holders and travelers for professional, humanitarian or medical reasons, Air France reminds holders of Canadian passports that they are no longer admitted to France for non-essential reasons. Canadians can still transit through Paris on their way to other Air France KLM countries in which they are authorized to enter. Passengers in transit are subject to the entry regulations of their country of final destination.
All travelers, regardless of their nationality, authorized to travel to France will have to complete an international travel certificate to mainland France, as well as a sworn declaration of absence of symptoms of COVID-19.
In addition, a negative COVID-19 test (RT PCR, RT LAMP or antigenic tests are the only acceptable tests) is now mandatory to enter France; It is recommended that you take a test and get the results within 72 hours of departure from Canada. Tests are also available on arrival at Charles-de-Gaulle airport.
Air France has entered into agreements with various laboratories and clinics in Canada. Go to https://www.airfrance.ca/CA/en/local/information/news/PCR.htm for more information.
Customers who can no longer travel can rebook in the same booking class for another date; no fees or reasons are required. They can also apply for a credit voucher. This policy also applies to all new bookings, whether the cancellation is due to changes in entry rules at a destination or a decision to cancel the trip, for whatever reason.
