March 7, 2014 Corporate No Comments Email Email

AirfanceIn the heart of a city open to artistic endeavour, Air France is a partner of the 16th Asian Film Festival in Deauville which this year places South Korea in the spotlight.
The film industry in Deauville, the public services and Air France are key partners of this new major event in 2014. The Company has been supporting this event since its inception in 1999. This year, South Korea is in the spotlight. In March, among the 25 Asian films on offer this month, two Korean films will be showing on board the Company’s flights:

  • MR. GO by Kim Yong-hwa
  • COLD EYES by Jo Ui-seok and Kim Byung-seo 


To ensure it constantly meets the cultural needs of its Asian customers, Air France offers customers on its flights to Asia specific products and services.

At the airport, multilingual agents are available to help and provide assistance to passengers. On board, interpreters are present on flights to South Korea and China. Japanese flight attendants also make up the cabin crews on flights to and from Japan.

Throughout the flight, the Company offers a wide choice of close to 125 films, some translated into as many as 9 languages, and a selection of 40 World Cinema films including works in their original Japanese, Chinese, Korean or Indian language version on all its routes.

The dining offer is also adapted to the destination such as on flights to India, for example, where the dishes are designed in partnership with prestigious Indian caterers (Oberoi).

A selection of local newspapers, multilingual entertainment, and creative, international cuisine are some of the many special attentions which turn the trip into a genuine moment of pleasure.


For the 2013-2014 winter season, Air France operates 115 weekly flights to 15 Asian destinations in South Korea, Japan, China, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, India and Singapore.


– Starting from 30 March 2014, on departure from Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Air France will operate a new twice-daily service to Tokyo-Haneda airport, in addition to its flights to Tokyo-Narita.

– The A380 is coming to Hong Kong. During the summer 2014 season, Air France will serve this destination with a daily flight, operated at night on the way there and back, thus making it easier for customers to rest prior to arrival at destination. From 27 May to 8 June 2014, this flight will be operated by the Airbus A380 (4 weekly frequencies) and by Boeing 777-300 (3 weekly frequencies). From 9 June to 25 October 2014, this daily frequency will be exclusively operated by Air France’s largest superjumbo. Hong Kong will be the second Chinese destination served by the A380 after Shanghai.
