Air France announces Los Angeles-Nice flight plans for Cannes Film Festival and Monaco GP 

Air France, an official partner of the Cannes Film Festival, will supplement its flight schedule during May with a direct connection between LAX and Nice Côte d’Azur Airport that will appeal to fans of both the cinema and the Monaco Grand Prix. 

The outbound route will depart Los Angeles’ main airport at 1.15pm on 13th May, the day before the Cannes Film Festival begins, with a scheduled arrival in the French Riviera the following morning at 9.35am.  

Depending on the configuration of the A350-900 plane used, there could be between 292 and 324 seats available, including premium economy and business class seating.  

The return journey will leave Nice at 1.55pm on 27th May, the day after the Monaco Grand Prix and two days after the close of the film festival. It is scheduled to land back on the West Coast at 5.05pm later that same day.  


Come June, and coinciding with the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, Air France will also run a special connection between New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and Nice. Outbound trips will leave the East Coast on 15th and 16th June while return voyages will be possible on 20th and 21st June.
