Good Air France Business Class fares available ex-UK

We don’t normally see many good Business Class deals for travel that originates in the UK but Air France is currently running a sale that may be worth a closer look. If you’re expecting amazing fares to all Air France destinations you may be a little disappointed but with most major regions covered in one way or another and with roundtrip long-haul fares starting at under £1,300, this is a good sale by UK standards.

Key terms

The fare rules will vary from destination to destination but (generally speaking) this is what you’ll find:

  • Most of the better deals need to be booked by 27 September or 11 October 2022
  • Most fares require customers to book no less than 7 – 14 days before departure
  • Fares are valid for travel between 6 October 2022 and 31 March 2023
  • A minimum stay of between 5 – 7 nights is required (or a Saturday night stay is required)

You’ll find detailed fare rules for each destination on the pages linked below so make sure you read them carefully before booking.

Also, keep in mind that as these fares are being offered by Air France and as they’re for departures from the UK (5 UK airports are covered), all trips will require a change of aircraft in Paris so it’s worth checking what British Airways is charging to see if a non-stop flight is materially more expensive (or even cheaper).
