Air France

Air France is the national carrier of France and a founding member of SkyTeam, an international alliance of 19 airlines that make up one of the world's largest air travel networks. In 2004, Air France merged with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and formed the Air France KLM Group, currently the largest European airline group. Although both airlines still operate under their own brands and banners, together they make up an impressive network that covers some 230 destinations in over 100 countries around the globe.

Air France offers national and international pet travel options. If you will be travelling with your animal companion you are advised to contact an Air France travel advisor to discuss all options that may be available to you.

Air France complies with all International Air Transport Association (IATA) standards and regulations.
