Summertime is quickly approaching and a lot of us are still scrambling to get our vacations in order. I know that for me, when choosing a destination, having to make multiple stops on the way is always a deterrent.

But now, one European airline has just launched new direct flights to make traveling abroad quicker and easier from Dallas. Oh là là!

For the first time since 2001, Air France is offering nonstop flights from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport to Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris. Flights began on March 31 and will run until June 30, then again from September 4 through October 25.

Up to five flights will be offered each week out of DFW on an Airbus A330 that seats 224 passengers. Instead of experiencing the stress of plane changes and layovers, the nonstop flights will take about nine and a half hours to reach The City of Love.

The Airport of the Year is experiencing so much growth, especially to international cities. DFW will also be adding on trips to Munich and Dublin this summer. These new Paris flights come just months after Mayors Mike Rawlings and Betsy Price took part in a trade mission to France.

“I am delighted to inaugurate this new non-stop service to Dallas-Fort Worth, Air France’s 13th destination in the U.S.,” Anne Rigail, CEO of Air France, says in a statement. “The American market is of prime importance for the Air France-KLM group, which alongside its transatlantic joint venture partners, operates more than 270 daily flights between Europe and North America.”

Flights will offer an experience on fully renovated Airbus A330s equipped with Wi-Fi, for Netflix watching of course, throughout the summer season.
