Take a seat in a private jet, fly off on time and with no constraints. Air France is offering its La Première customers with connections at Paris-Charles de Gaulle a new way to travel which is faster and easier. An exclusive trip from departure to destination with attention to detail: an exceptional offer.

Starting today, Air France, in partnership with Wijet, is offering a new range of private jet services. This service is exclusively dedicated to connecting passengers at Paris-Charles de Gaulle, before or after their long-haul flight on Air France in the La Première cabin and their travel companions traveling in the Business cabin.

After revealing its new «haute couture» La Première suites, the Company is continuing to upgrade its most exclusive cabin. The trip is totally bespoke, from the customer’s departure to their arrival at desti-nation, including optimized connection time at Paris-Charles de Gaulle.

Bespoke services

The private jet services are operated by Wijet in Cessna Citation Mustang-type aircraft, which can take-off from or to 1,200 airports in France in Europe within two and a half hours of Paris, an ideal solution for flying to a destination which is not served by a major airport or which is closer to home. Customers can also choose their own departure time.

At the jet’s departure airport, departure procedures are simplified. There are no check-in formalities and boarding is immediate. At the arrival airport, customers disembark with their baggage without waiting.

When they board an Air France private jet, customers enjoy a private cabin with just four large leather club seats. Two seats recline to 140°, ideal for relaxing during the flight in a particularly quiet cabin. Personal storage and folding shelves enable you to organize your trip at your convenience. At the front and back of the aircraft, baggage holds provide a significant volume of 1.6 m3.

On board, a selection of alcoholic or soft drinks, a selection of exclusive French pastries or a «lunch box»* are offered during the flight. Daily newspapers, magazines, touchscreen tablets and free satellite telephone services are also available.

Moreover, with this exclusive private jet service, La Première customers earn Miles as part of the Flying Blue frequent flyer program.

A service 40% cheaper than our rivals

This new service is on offer at particularly competitive fares, 40% cheaper than the fares offered on the market. Fares start at 2,400 euros including tax per hour for a return trip** to or from Paris-Charles de Gaulle. This fare applies per aircraft and not per passenger.

Fast and easy connections at Paris-Charles de Gaulle

With this completely bespoke offer, the connection between the private jet and the long-haul flight is optimized both on departure and on arrival at Paris-Charles de Gaulle. At each stage of the trip, customers are accompanied by an Air France La Première agent. They are systematically greeted at the door of the aircraft, and are taken by car to board their next flight. A limousine is provided between the long-haul flight and the private jet, and vice versa. If the customer wishes, he or she can also go to the La Première lounge, the most exclusive of all Air France lounges.

Baggage is taken care of by Air France, check-in and security checks at the airport are simplified and passengers can board at their convenience on their long-haul flight.
