France’s first smart-cost long-haul airline serves Paris

The French bee airline continues its rapid expansion in the United States and opens ticket sales for its first southeast route from Miami to Paris Orly from December 2022.

The coastal metropolis of Miami is one of the most popular destinations in the world and now South Floridians can experience the airline’s spirited, authentically French nonstop flight.
French bee has been one of the most competitive long-haul carriers since entering the US market with San Francisco (SFO) in Paris and Tahiti in 2018. Over the past 10 months,
French bee successfully launched two Parisian routes from Los Angeles (LAX) and New York (EWR), establishing the airline as the only nonstop carrier to bring travelers to the nearest airport (ORY) of Paris, and now Miami.

French bee’s introductory fares from Miami to Paris Orly start from $281 per trip in Basic Economy, making it the most affordable. Three hyper-customizable à la carte ticket offices
tiers (Basic, Smart and Premium) allow travelers to pay for exactly what they want while air+train packages allow passengers to build discounted routes beyond Paris. More,
French bee has an interline partnership with Alaska Airlines so travelers outside of Miami can easily connect from different cities.

“Paris remains one of the most sought-after international destinations in the world for South Floridians and with the continued growth that Miami is witnessing, we are confident that it is
the cheapest for our first Southeast route. We are excited about this expansion as we know passengers will find value by booking competitively priced in the marketplace,” said Marc Rochet, President of French bee.

“With the access Miami’s new service provides, we expect it to generate strong demand, forging more economic and tourism ties between the two cities.”

Starting December 15, French bee will operate three weekly non-stop flights from Miami International Airport (MIA) to Paris Orly Airport (ORY) and will increase to four weekly flights in
April 2022. French bee is the only smart cost carrier to have a full Airbus fleet including the A350-900 and one A350-1000, which consistently ranks among the most modern and most
efficient aircraft designed for comfortable long-haul travel.
