Why Not Explore France? You're At The Airport Anyway...

Each corner of France has its own unique character: the rugged and outdoorsy French Alps; sun-drenched and slow-paced Provence; the glamorous and gorgeous Côte d'Azur coastline; and idyllic Alsace, a pastoral region where storybook hamlets are tucked away in the vine-covered rolling hills.

Air France flies direct from Johannesburg to Paris five times per week. From the end of October, flights will be daily. The evening departure from Johannesburg ensures that passengers can connect to the first wave of departures from Charles de Gaulle to 20 destinations within France and beyond to any of the airline's destinations in Europe, as well as the USA and Canada.
