Air France: Aircraft Fleet
Air France is a major airline based in France, with a fleet of over 200 aircraft serving destinations all over the world. The airline operates a mix of narrow-body and wide-body aircraft, with a focus on Airbus models.
The backbone of Air France's fleet is the Airbus A320 family, with 53 A319s, 43 A320s, and 17 A321s in service as of 2021. These aircraft are used primarily on short-haul routes within Europe, but also on some longer flights to North Africa and the Middle East.
For medium-haul flights to destinations in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, Air France uses a combination of Airbus A330 and A350 aircraft. The airline has 15 A330s and 10 A350s in service, with plans to add more A350s in the coming years.
For long-haul flights to destinations in North and South America, Asia, and Oceania, Air France operates a fleet of Boeing 777 and 787 Dreamliner aircraft. The airline has 43 777s and 10 787s in service, with plans to retire some of the older 777s and add more 787s in the coming years.
In addition to these main aircraft types, Air France also operates a small number of regional jets for short-haul flights within Europe, as well as some cargo aircraft for freight operations.
Recently, Air France has made significant deals to upgrade its fleet. The airline announced an order for 60 Airbus A220 aircraft, which will replace its aging fleet of A318 and A319 aircraft on short-haul routes. The first A220s are expected to enter service in 2021.
