For 25 years, Air France and railway company SNCF offered their customers a service allowing train and plane journeys to be combined in the same reservation. They have just strengthened their partnership by extending the “TRAIN + AIR” product to the Bordeaux - Paris-Orly axis.

Called Train + Air (formerly TGV Air) and used each year by more than 160,000 customers, this service currently connects 14 stations to Air France hubs at Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly.

The 14 stations:

  • Angers Saint-Laud
  • Avignon TGV
  • Champagne-Ardenne TGV
  • Le Mans
  • Lille Europe
  • Lorraine TGV
  • Lyon Part Dieu
  • Nantes
  • Nimes
  • Poitiers
  • Reindeer
  • Saint-Pierre-des-Corps
  • Strasbourg
  • Valence TGV

Since December 15, Train + Air has also been offered by Air France between Bordeaux Saint-Jean station and Paris-Orly airport. This service allows connections to the entire Air France international network from Paris airport.

Customers travel by train from Bordeaux to Massy TGV, before being transferred to Paris-Orly by a taxi service. Five daily departures are provided from Bordeaux Saint-Jean and 4 from Massy TGV, at suitable times to allow fast connections.

Air France and SNCF are currently working on deploying the Train + Air product on other routes and improving the customer experience throughout the journey.
