Air France’s ‘Ready to Fly’ service rolling out to Canadian routes

With ‘Ready To Fly’, Air France passengers can have their travel documents checked prior to their flight.

The service is now available on 140 routes and 600 daily Air France flights.

Air France launched Ready To Fly in July 2021 as a free and optional service providing customers confirmation that they have the required health documents for their trip before arriving at the airport.

Passengers gain greater peace of mind and a more seamless travel experience, by avoiding multiple checks on the day of departure, says the airline.

Ready To Fly is being progressively deployed throughout the Air France network. It is currently available on more than 140 routes on departure from 80 airports, representing more than 600 daily flights including …

  • Flights to France on departure from Europe and Canada
  • All domestic flights in France and to/from Corsica and French Overseas Department
  • Flights to/from the United States, Argentina, Chile and Brazil
  • Flights from France to Germany, Spain, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Gabon and Senegal

Air France’s Ready to Fly service also automates the French vaccine pass verification on domestic flights. The vaccine pass became mandatory on domestic flights in France for passengers aged 16 and over as of Jan. 24, 2022.

To reduce the time required to process the submitted documents, Air France is replacing the manual verification of the vaccine pass with an automated check, ensuring customers travelling in France receive instant confirmation.

The airline says this feature is available a few days before departure, in the same way as with any other Ready To Fly document verification process – customers receive an email from Air France inviting them to upload their vaccine pass on a secure online platform.

Customers who have not used the pre-validation service can alternatively scan the QR code of their vaccine pass during check-in at a self-service kiosk at the airport on the day of departure. This service is currently available at Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Paris-Orly, Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille, Montpellier, Mulhouse, Nantes, Nice, Strasbourg and Toulouse. This feature will be integrated in the online check-in process in the coming months.
