What to do in case of an Air France flight delay?

Whether you are travelling for business or pleasure, suffering a flight delay can be very stressful. But if you have recently experienced a flight delay or cancellation on an Air France service, you could be eligible for compensation of up to €600 as per EU Regulation 261/04.

About Air France

Air France, one of Europe’s largest air carriers in terms of passengers and revenue, was founded in 1933. In 1953 it became the first air carrier to use jetliners for passenger travel. Air France was also the first customer of Airbus Industrie’s A300, the manufacturer’s first commercial airliner. The airline was the French flag carrier for more than seventy years before the company merged with KLM in 2004.

Today, the company’s fleet serves nearly 170 destinations in more than 90 countries across six continents. Both of its main hubs are located in Paris; they are the Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG), Europe’s second busiest airport, and the Paris Orly Airport (ORY).
