Air France Launches New Paris–Ottawa Route

In its first new Canadian route announcement of 2023, Air France has revealed that it will begin service between Paris and Ottawa later this year. As of June 27, 2023, the Paris-based airline will launch a new flight between the two capitals, beginning with five times per week.

In the same announcement, Air France also stated that the service to Quebec City will resume for Summer 2023, and the year-round frequency to Vancouver, Montreal, and Toronto will also be increased.

Air France’s New Ottawa–Paris Route

Once service begins on June 27, 2023, flights will operate seasonally between Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport and Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

The flight numbers and times are scheduled as follows:

  • AF364 Paris (CDG) to Ottawa (YOW), departing 1:10pm and arriving 3:05pm
  • AF361 Ottawa (YOW) to Paris (CDG), departing 5:05pm and arriving 6:15am the next day

The flight will be operated by a three-cabin Airbus A330-200 aircraft, offering 36 lie-flat business class seats in a 2-2-2 configuration, 21 premium economy seats, and 167 economy seats.

Air France also operates flights between Paris and Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto, and Vancouver, making Ottawa the airline’s fifth Canadian destination.

Should Ottawa-based passengers wish to fly to or from Paris on a day when the non-stop flight is unavailable, there is a complimentary bus service between Montreal and Ottawa that connects passengers to Air France flights.

Air France Restores, Increases Frequency on Other Canadian Routes

Air France has also announced the resumption of the service between Quebec City and Paris, as well as an increase to the number of flights to its other Canadian destinations.

The Quebec City service, which was inaugurated in 2022, is set to resume on May 2, 2023. Air France will operate thrice-weekly flights between the two cities on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, and the route will be served by the Boeing 787-9 aircraft.

Air France also runs a shuttle bus between Quebec City and Montreal on days when flights don’t depart from Quebec City.

Air France operates year-round flights from Paris to Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver. These routes are set to see a 25% increase in service compared to 2019 levels, which is great for anyone who is planning a visit to Europe.
