Chennai will be Air France's four Indian destination. Till date, passengers from Chennai have to take a connecting flight in Delhi, Mumbai or Bengaluru to reach the Paris from where the Airline is operating. Initially, Air France will operate the flight once in a week in view of the restrictions imposed by the Indian government due to the COVID pandemic-induced lockdown. 
Airport sources said from July eight onwards the flight will arrive from Paris on Thursdays and depart on Saturdays. Once the government restores International flight services, Air France would be operating three flights a week. The 9 hour 50 minute flight (AF108) will be operated with a 276-seater three-class configured Boeing 787-9.
