Air France and Delta Sponsor 44th American Film Festival

Air France and Delta Air Lines are the official airlines of the 44th annual American Film Festival in Deauville for the fifth consecutive year. The world’s largest celebration of American cinema runs from August 31 to September 9, offering round-the-clock screenings of both modern Hollywood and independent movies.

Air France and Delta are bringing Hollywood glamour to the famous beach chalets of Deauville with 20 weekly flights between Los Angeles and Paris-Charles de Gaulle, including Delta’s new nonstop service, which launched in June 2018. In addition, customers benefit from connections to Los Angeles from destinations across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India via the Paris-Charles de Gaulle hub.

“Cinema is an integral part of Air France’s DNA and is today an essential part of the travel experience. Air France is one of the largest inflight movie theaters in the world, with over 1,200 hours of video on demand, available in 12 languages on the 38,000 screens on our long-haul fleet. It is therefore quite natural for Air France to be sponsoring the Deauville American Film Festival for the fifth consecutive year, alongside our strategic partner Delta Airlines, with whom the Air France-KLM group offers the most complete range of flights over the North Atlantic,” said Patrick Alexandre, Executive Vice-President Commercial, Sales and Alliances, Air France-KLM.

“Sponsoring the Deauville Film Festival in the same year as launching a new route to Los Angeles is particularly significant, and we are excited to be a part of the action again with our partner, Air France,” said, Corneel Koster, Delta’s Senior Vice President Europe, Middle East, Africa and India. “From offering the latest Hollywood blockbusters on-demand to quality on-board service, upgraded terminals and a V.I.P. suite at LAX, Delta offers special treatment between Paris and L.A., for movie stars and enthusiasts alike.”
