Brittany to the Caribbean in a single booking

Starting today, Air France is teaming up with a combined ‘rail + air’ offer from TGV AIR.

Starting today, Air France passengers travelling from Rennes, the regional capital of Brittany, to the French West Indies or the Indian Ocean will be able to reach Paris-Orly Airport more easily with a combined ‘rail + air’ offer in partnership with France’s high-speed rail service.

TGV AIR is an air-and-rail scheme run by TGV, France’s intercity high-speed rail service, which is in turn operated by the national rail operator SNCF.

The Air France partnership with TGV AIR takes passengers via Massy TGV train station in Paris, from which a VIP transfer takes them to and from the airport.

Air France has teamed up with Alpha Taxis to provide a free transfer in a premium vehicle between Massy TGV station and Orly airport, the chauffeur holding up a sign bearing their name – whatever their travel class.

The service offers customers the advantage of making a single booking and special combined fares and check-in through to their final destination.

The destinations included in the new product are Fort-de-France (Martinique), Point-à-Pitre (Guadeloupe), Cayenne (French Guiana) and Saint-Denis (Reunion Island).

More miles
Passengers can also earn Flying Blue Miles both on the Rennes-Massy leg of the trip and on the Air France flight.

If a connection is missed or a plane or train is delayed, Air France and SNCF guarantee a place on board the next available flight or train at no extra charge.
