New Air France summer schedule brings more of Europe to Houston.

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 9, 1995--Starting March 26, all Air France flights from Houston Intercontinental to Paris will depart in the late afternoon instead of at midnight, the airline announced today. The earlier departure time means a morning arrival in Paris (instead of late afternoon), in time to take advantage of many more connections offered by Air France to nearly 100 destinations in France and the rest of Europe.

Air France offers five flights a week from Houston nonstop to Paris, departing every day except Monday and Wednesday at 4:50 p.m. (3:50 p.m. from March 26 through April 1) and arriving at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport at 9:15 a.m. the following day.

The earlier arrival at Charles de Gaulle, the Air France hub, allows for more connections than were previously available to the Air France European network. This includes cities without nonstop service from Houston such as Berlin, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Geneva, Madrid, Milan, Moscow, Munich, Oslo, Rome, Stockholm and Zurich.

Return flight schedules to Houston are unchanged, departing Paris at 11:05 a.m. on Tuesday/Thursday/Friday/Saturday/Sunday, arriving Intercontinental the same day at 2:50 p.m.

Air France now offers its own mileage program in the U.S. for frequent travelers, Frequence Plus, with free flights on the supersonic Concorde and companion tickets at just half the normally applicable mileage.
