Because the possibilities are très enticing – including more than 100 destinations across Europe and to select cities in the Americas.
Need some inspo? Just look at the gorgeous photos here, all from Air France’s helpful online Travel Guides for the following cities (clockwise from top left): Paris, Toronto, Milan, Barcelona, Berlin and Montreal. In addition, you can visit Boston or Buenos Aires, Lima or Lisbon, Santiago or Stockholm and dozens of other bucket-list-worthy locales.
What’s the cost? During this September sale, Premium Economy flights to Europe are just $1,855 SGD all-in, and to the Americas, $4,255 SGD all-in. The promotional fare even applies to “open jaw” itineraries to and from Europe (i.e., flying into one European city and returning from another).
For this elegant, 84-year-old airline, travel is not simply about moving from one place to another. Air France’s ultimate goal? To make every passenger feel special and share the very best of France with them.
Take advantage of its dedicated Premium Economy cabin – separated by a divider on both sides – to relax or work in total freedom and serenity. The generously proportioned, well-cushioned seats provide 40-percent more personal space compared to the airline’s own Economy class seats.
Beyond that, if you download the free Air France Play app at least 30 hours before your departure, you can start downloading unlimited newspapers, magazines, videos and music podcasts to enjoy on your tablet or smartphone for free! The moment you board, you can immediately watch movies at your seat.
So, you may have heard, the French take their food seriously. This same passion applies to the gastronomic offerings on Air France’s Premium Economy flights.
The gourmet menus are crafted by chefs from Servair, the leading French catering company. The wines and Champagnes, which are served at no extra charge, have been selected by Paolo Basso, who was named world’s top sommelier in 2013.
To start, you can indulge in an appetiser, followed by a choice of two hot meals, then finish with a delicious dessert plus a coffee, tea or a digestive liqueur with an assortment of sweet treats. (Read about even more foodie perks on the next slide.)
Also note: On long-haul flights in Premium Economy, you can opt for the menu of the day at no extra charge, or a meal from its A la Carte Menu. These exclusive culinary experiences range from the Le marché de Jean Imbert Menu, created by a rising star of French cuisine, to the Lenôtre Selection Menu, crafted by the famed Maison LENÔTRE.
Even before your meal, you can sip on a refreshing drink, with or without alcohol, while snacking on savoury treats. During dinner, a divine-smelling bread basket is circulated – take as many pieces as you like.
Want to treat yourself? Ice cream, fresh products and mini sandwiches are always on offer at the self-service buffet. And, you can help yourself to a box of sweet and savoury snacks from My Little Gourmandises.
One more benefit of taking a long-haul flight in Premium Economy class: You wake up to a tasty breakfast. Mmm.
In Premium Economy, you can look forward to a variety of extra touches – Air France minds every last detail.
Once on board, the cabin crew will offer you a chilled oshibori towel, so you can freshen up before your meal. You’ll also receive a comfort kit – redesigned every 6 months – and a bottle of Evian water. Style mavens will appreciate such details as the chic menu designs and clean, navy-blue-and-white cabin aesthetic.
In addition, the extra-cushy Premium Economy seats feature a 12” HD screen with noise-reducing headset, a multi-position foot rest, adjustable reading light and – on most flights – an electronic PC outlet and USB port.
For a comfortable rest, feel free to snuggle up with a fleece blanket and feather pillow.
