French flag carrier Air France has some good news for customers planning their summer holiday getaways. On Wednesday, the airline announced[2] a number of new destinations that will be available to customers this summer.

Mediterranean destinations galore

It looks like Air France has concentrated its summer expansion on Mediterranean destinations.

They’re popular with tourists and likely to be a hot seller. But, for now, the new routes will only be a temporary addition for the peak holiday season between July and August.

Air France has focused on one country in particular – Greece. With three separate destinations, Mykonos, Santorini and Thessaloniki, there’s plenty for admirers of beaches and island getaways to choose from.

All three summer flights to Greece will depart from Paris Charles de Gaulle and will be operated by Air France’s Airbus A320s[3] during the period 13 July to 30 August.

Flights to and from Mykonos will operate on Mondays and Wednesdays, whilst flights to and from Santorini will operate on Wednesdays only.

The most frequent of the three Greek destinations, Thessaloniki, will operate on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Something a bit different

In case you still want to travel to the Mediterranean, but fancy something a bit different, Air France will also be offering summer flights to Djerba, a small island off the coast of Tunisia.

According to Air France’s press release announcing the new routes, Djerba offers “a host of leisure activities and escapades, sightseeing and relaxation, palm and olive trees.”
