For the upcoming peak summer season, in July and August, Air France will for the first time be operating flights to Heraklion (Crete, Greece), Palermo (Sicily, Italy), Olbia (Sardinia, Italy) and Split (Croatia) on departure from Paris-Charles de Gaulle.
Air France is extending and intensifying the frequency of its flights to Cagliari*, Dubrovnik, Ibiza and Bari from Paris-Charles de Gaulle, already operated in 2018. In addition, these four destinations will be served every weekend during the 2019 summer season.
The Greek city of Heraklion
Heraklion, the capital of Crete, is the ideal starting point to discover this sunny island. The island, with its whitewashed houses, beautiful sandy and pebble beaches and exceptional flora is an ode to hedonism.
The bright sunlight of Palermo
For centuries, many different cultures – including Roman, Arab, Punic and Norman – have shaped Palermo. From this mosaic of cultures was born a city with a harmonious and baroque portrait. Palaces, churches and buildings with Arabic-Norman architecture imbued with baroque style will delight aesthetes and history lovers alike. Palermo is a city whose beauty is uncontested. You can walk through its streets as if you were walking through a poem. The rugged coast offers many sun-drenched beaches with turquoise waters.
The happy city of Olbia
Olbia, which means “happiness” in Greek, is the starting point in Sardinia, its turquoise waters and unspoiled scenery. Sardinia, the second largest island in the Mediterranean, is an island tossed around by Phoenician, Roman, Genoese and Spanish cultures, among others. This land, whose geography varies from the hills where you can hear Sardinian shepherds whistling, to the coasts lined with turquoise waters, is certainly one of our most stunning destinations.
The beaches and palaces of Split
With sandy beaches and turquoise waters, a historic centre with sumptuous monuments and a port to sail to the beautiful islands of Dalmatia, Split is an ideal holiday destination. Croatia’s second largest city, located on the coast, is a delight for all beach lovers. The city is also home to a rich cultural and architectural heritage. It is home to the Diocletian Palace, an imposing monument dating back to the Roman Empire and inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
