If you cannot walk to the aircraft or to connecting flights, we advise you to contact us 48 hours before your departure or at the time of booking. Air France will provide you with all the necessary assistance.
Your boarding gate is indicated on the video screens marked "Departing flights" and on your boarding pass. Go directly to this gate to board for departure after check-in.
Can I shop for duty-free goods after passing passport control?
You can purchase duty-free goods after passport control in European airports if you are traveling to a non-EU country or a French overseas territory. In addition to your baggage allowance, you can transport one bag of duty-free goods per person in the cabin. Liquids and tobacco products must be transported in a sealed plastic bag. You can also shop for duty-free goods on our long-haul flights.
What is the difference between check-in and boarding?
Check-in confirms your presence on the flight and allows you to check baggage. Boarding refers to to the moment when you board the aircraft. You should plan to arrive at the airport early on the day of your departure to give yourself enough time to pass all security checks (passport controls, health document verification, security…).
Do I receive a compensation if I am denied boarding?
Air France actively works to limit the potential inconveniences of overbooking by:
offering compensation awards for those who volunteer to take later flights,
ensuring a new booking aboard another flight as soon as possible,
paying for any necessary accommodation costs.
What do I do if I have trouble printing my boarding pass?
If you are unable to print your boarding pass, you can collect it from any self-service kiosk or check-in desk at the airport before your flight's Check-in deadline.
