The map shows all French airports and Franco-Swiss airports with scheduled flights from the UK and/or Ireland, and USA and Canada in 2021.
Red dots : major airports served by multiple airlines providing scheduled international services  throughout the year.
Blue dots :  airports with seasonal flights to the UK, or in some cases a limited year-round service to one or two destinations only, essentially with low-cost carriers.
Note: Carrier Flybe has gone out of business. Some former  Flybe routes may be taken over by other airlines in the course of 2021


Cheapest tickets ?

BE WARNED !
For flights from UK or Ireland to France, for best rates book directly with the airlines.  Do not use resellers like Expedia or Opodo, as  experience shows that generally speaking, you won't get better rates than those offrered directly by the airline, specially if it is a low-cost airline. Online ticket-booking portals may sometimes appear to offer lower prices than you can get directly on the airline's own booking site; but don't be taken in.  Once all the extras have been taken into account, the cost of a ticket on an online booking site may end up quite a bit more than if you had bought it directly from the airline. It doesn't always happen, but it does happen.  In addition, external booking sites do not always offer the extras that the airline itself offers, such as seat reservation, which is recommended on certain airlines if two or more people want to be sure of sitting together. And if you need to cancel or modify a booking, then the penalties can really mount up.
  So who flies where?  See the tables below.

General flight information.


With the exception of France's major airports - Paris, Bordeaux, Toulouse and Nice, the majority of flights listed in the tables below operate for a limited season, or in some cases all year round but with maybe just one or two services per week. For details, consult the airline's own website.
  From North America, the airline serving the most destinations in France with direct flights is Canada's Air Transat, with direct flights from Montreal and some from Toronto, with connecting flights from many Canadian and US airports

Flights to PARIS

Some routes listed below may be seasonal. There are two commercial airports in Paris - Charles de Gaulle (CDG) and Orly (ORY). Paris - Charles de Gaulle airport is the main international airport, served by Air France, major world airlines and many smaller airlines too. There are plenty of European and French domestic flights to/from CDG too. Paris Orly is mainly used for domestic flights, flights to North Africa and a limited number of European destinations . For more details on terminals and access, see Paris airports information.
  In addition to CDG and ORY, there are two other airports that Ryanair calls "Paris" – Beauvais and Vatry. Beauvais is used by east European low-cost companies too, and there are plenty of flights – enough to justify a regular bus service from Beauvais Airport to Paris, Porte Maillot, journey time is 1h 15 minutes... as long as there are no holdups. Paris Vatry, which is actually near Reims, is not used for UK flights.
