Air France launches service to Oran, Algeria


PARIS, France – From 27 July 2016, Air France will be offering its customers a new service between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Oran in Algeria. Three weekly flights will connect the two cities, by Airbus A320, which seats 174 passengers, departing on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

On board the Airbus A320, customers will enjoy the very latest medium-haul cabin classes. Leather-upholstered seats throughout offer a new standard for travel in both Business Class and Economy Class. The entire cabin, with its harmonious and elegant design, offers passengers optimum travel comfort, ideal for working, resting, or enjoying refreshments before arriving at the destination.

In addition, on departure from Oran, Air France’s customers will benefit from optimised onward connections to Air France’s entire medium- and long-haul network from its hub at Paris-Charles de Gaulle.

Oran, the Radiant City

A historic quarter combining Islamic, Spanish and French architecture, the memory of the writer Albert Camus, a local figure, but also a city with dynamic industry and the country’s chief oil port. Bordered to the north by the Mediterranean Sea and to the west by the impressive Pic d’Aidour, Oran is the second largest city in Algeria.
