Air France Adds Bordeaux to Train + Air Service

(15 Dec 2020)
For 25 years, Air France and the SNCF have been
offering customers a service allowing them to combine train and
air travel in a single booking.

Called Train + Air (formerly TGV Air) and used
every year by more than 160,000 customers, it links the following
14 stations to the Air France hubs at Paris-Charles de Gaulle and
Paris-Orly: Angers Saint-Laud, Avignon TGV, Champagne-Ardenne TGV,
Le Mans, Lille Europe, Lorraine TGV, Lyon Part-Dieu, Nantes, Nmes,
Poitiers, Rennes, Saint-Pierre-des-Corps, Strasbourg and Valence
TGV.


Air France today expanded the service to offer
Train + Air between Bordeaux Saint-Jean station and Paris-Orly
airport, with connections available to the entire international
Air France network on departure from Paris-Orly airport,
particularly to the French overseas territories: Cayenne,
Pointe–Pitre, Fort-de-France and Saint-Denis de La Runion.

Customers will travel by train from Bordeaux to
Massy TGV, before transferring to Paris-Orly by a taxi service.
There will be 5 daily departures from Bordeaux Saint-Jean and 4
daily departures from Massy TGV, with adapted schedules for quick
connections.

Customers travelling from Bordeaux will be able to enjoy all the
advantages of the Train + Air product, including:

– a single ticket for the entire trip, with the
guarantee of a transfer to the next flight or train at no extra
cost, in the event of a missed connection;

– a First Class seat on board the TGV for customers
in the Business or La Premire cabins on Air France; and

– Miles and Flying Blue XP earned on the entire
trip, including the rail leg.

Vincent Etchebehere, VP Sustainability and New
Mobilities said, Intermodality is at the heart of Air France’s
sustainable development roadmap and we are pleased to be working
on its development alongside SNCF teams. Air France is committed
to halving its CO2 emissions on the domestic network by 2024,
notably by suspending routes on departure from Orly for which a
rail alternative is available in less than 2hr30. The deployment
of the Train + Air service on the Paris-Bordeaux route will make
it possible to meet this commitment while maintaining connections
to France and the rest of the world.

Air France and the SNCF are also in discussions to
extend the Train + Air service to other routes.
