Destination Saturdays: Paris | presented by AF-KLM VA @LFPG 152000ZJUL17

Event Description:
Air France-KLM Virtual Group invites you to the launch of DESTINATION SATURDAYS, a new monthly series dedicated to city hopping and short haul flying to the most interesting locations across the globe.

The first installment of DESTINATION SATURDAYS takes place in none other than the City of Lights, home to AFVA. Join the elite pilots of AF-KLM VA as we embark on a sunset tour of the majestic Paris region. We will depart from Charles De Gaulle Int. (LFPG) and conduct a low-altitude cruise over la Ville Lumière. We will fly along the River Seine as we perform a touch and go at Paris Orly (LFPO), AFVA’s second hub in Paris. After, we will fly a southern route through the Centre-Val de Loire region to our final destination Avord Air Base (LFOA), the second-largest in France.

French fighter jets will intercept our fleet on approach and help us commemorate the inaugural flight by escorting us on final.

Please follow proper procedure and demonstrate quality airmanship at all times.
