Air France invites everyone to join in the spirited 40th anniversary weekend of The San Francisco Marathon July 21-23, 2017. As the official airline partner, Air France will host an interactive photo booth, cheer runners crossing the finish line and give away a trip to the Paris Marathon 2018.

“We are thrilled to again be the official airline partner of The San Francisco Marathon,” said Stéphane Ormand, Vice President and General Manager, USA – Air France KLM. “Air France has a proud legacy of supporting major races around the world because of the unifying spirit of running, and of supporting the running passions of our frequent fliers through our Flying Blue Running Club.”

Visit Air France at the Race Expo, located near the bib and shirt pick up at booth 440, on July 21 from 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. or July 22 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to sign up for a chance to win a trip to the Paris Marathon 2018, which will include round-trip airfare in Economy on Air France from San Francisco to Paris. The Air France booth will also feature an interactive photo booth and have the Air France Business class seat on display. A cocoon in the sky, the new Business class seat has been designed to ensure optimal comfort and privacy with a fully flat bed, direct access to the aisle for every passenger, and a multipurpose area that functions as a desk or table.

On race day, Air France will be stationed at the finisher chute with cheerleaders applauding runners as they cross the tape. Air France will also have a presence at the Finish Line Festival at Justin Herman – Embarcadero Plaza from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. where a brand ambassador will be offering refreshing wet hand towels to runners. Participants and spectators will have another opportunity at the festival to sign up for the trip sweepstakes and speak with Air France about its Flying Blue Running club.
