Air France Celebrates The Chinese Moon Festival

AirfanceOn 19 September 2013, to celebrate the Moon festival in China, Air France is spotlighting its Chinese customers.

This Mid-Autumn celebration is an opportunity for the Company to pay special attention to all passengers on flights to and from China. Throughout the year, Air France is continuously developing products and services tailored to the needs of its Chinese customers, from the welcome they receive at the airport to the meal service offered on board.


Celebrated on the evening of the fifteenth day of the eighth lunar month, which is always a full moon, the Moon Festival symbolizes family unity and getting together.

Air France, in partnership with the Confucius Institute at the University of Poitiers, is taking part in this event and will be surprising its customers travelling to and from China during this period. Chinese “moon cakes”, especially imported from Macao for the occasion, will be distributed on board as well as in the La Première and Business Class lounges.

Greetings cards will also be offered by ground staff and crew. A French recipe will be printed on them in Chinese and the cards will be numbered, so that customers can keep and collect them (other cards are distributed for the Chinese New Year). For La Première passengers travelling to China, these cards are personalized and come with a Chopard gift voucher.

The Moon Festival is an opportunity for Air France to pay special attention to its Chinese customers and to illustrate its interest in their traditional culture.
