Your comfort, well-being and health remain our highest priority. As the world faces an unprecedented health crisis, we have put special measures in place to guarantee your safety when traveling with us.



Given the current exceptional circumstances, we are taking special measures to help you travel with confidence. During this period, we are waiving change fees on all tickets to offer you greater flexibility with your bookings. To learn more how these measures apply to your trip, please consult our Flight Updates page, updated in real time.

View our travel measures  


Our "Air France Protect" label guarantees you a safe trip.

We invite you to read about the exceptional health measures implemented at each stage of your trip which are regularly adapted to the changing situation.


Since 11 May, it is compulsory to wear a surgical mask upon arrival at the airport and on board Air France flights. Each customer is required to wear an approved mask throughout their trip. We recommend that you carry several masks with you for your personal comfort. 

We invite you to dispose of your used masks in the bins at the airport and on board the aircraft.



Some countries require special travel certificates, quarantine on arrival, a recent negative Covid-19 test or other medical documents. Whatever your destination, we invite you to check the entry requirements and documents required on arrival. You will not be able to board without these documents.

For more information, please consult the TravelDoc website or our COVID-19 Flash Info page.

  • If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 (coughing, fever, headache, breathing difficulties etc.), please postpone your trip.
  • For stress-free travel, we recommend that you arrive at the airport as early as possible, check in all your baggage and head to the boarding gate in good time.
  • To limit the number of people at the airport at this time, access to the Paris airports is only authorized for passengers, people accompanying children travelling alone, or those requiring special assistance.


In order to help you carry out a Covid-19 detection test (RT-PCR), Air France has set up partnerships with the Synlab and BioGroup laboratories.

We advise you to make an appointment in advance (test to be carried out within 72 hours before your departure, results within 48 hours).

Since 26 July, COVID-19 screening in France is covered by health insurance without a prescription, regardless of your destination.

You can find below the list of laboratories carrying out the PCR-Covid tests:
You can also visit the Doctolib website to make appointments with other laboratories performing Covid-19 PCR tests.

The list of laboratories is provided for information only. Air France declines all responsibility for the conditions and consequences of carrying out the tests.


Inflight service

Our "Air France Protect" label guarantees you a safe trip and it is in this context that we are gradually improving your travel experience.
On board, on flights lasting less than 2hr30, we are resuming our beverage service and on our flights lasting more than 2hr30, a snack offer will once again be available. 
On our long-haul flights, we are gradually reintroducing a fuller meal service with more choice and individually wrapped products, and the second meal is served in our "Bon Appétit" bags on flights longer than 8hr30.

In addition, we are no longer able to offer you duty-free items and newspapers and magazines on board our flights. The press offer remains available on our Air France Play app, which you can download before your flight.

Children travelling alone

We have been happily welcoming young unaccompanied travellers, from 4 to 17 years old, back on board our aircraft.
