What's the name of Paris's most famous avenue? if you know the answer you're in with a chance of winning free flights for two to France's stunning capital city.
Five reasons to take a MiNi break in Paris
There's always a good excuse to take a holiday. Whether you're travelling for business or pleasure, Air France's affordable MiNi fares allow you to decide how you want to reach France's stunning capital city.
What’s the best way to get to Paris from Geneva, Zurich or Basel? Air France’s simplified MiNi fares get you there, and back, without the fuss.
Since the French capital has never been such value for money, it’s hard to find a reason why you shouldn’t book your direct flight to Paris today, without delay.
1. Enjoy your savings
Feel safe in the knowledge that you can splash out, since you’ll be saving all the way there, and back. Air France’s one-way MiNi fares from Switzerland to Paris start from as little as 59 CHF or book a return trip from 109 CHF.
The discounted fare leaves you with plenty of spare change to sample the best pickings of shops and restaurants that Paris has to offer.
2. Sit back and relax
Your seat on board is guaranteed! MiNi fare passengers can choose where to sit when they board the aeroplane but lose the option to book their seat during check-in.
Everyone benefits, however, from Air France’s pre-fight mobile services and the usual on board perks of local and international newspapers, a snack and drink service and hand luggage allowance.
3. Leave your baggage behind
Get away from it all without overloading your trip with excess baggage. MiNi fare passengers are used to travelling light since the ticket doesn’t allow for checked in luggage.
You can take advantage of the generous 12-kilo hand luggage allowance instead. And exception is made for Elite Flying Blue (Silver, Gold and Platinum) and Sky Team Elite members, who continue to benefit from one free, checked in baggage, even when flying with a MiNi fare ticket.
4. Travel with class
You can mix and match your MiNi fare with the Air France Classic economy ticket. That means a wide range of options for passengers who need to carry that bit extra with them.
Those who do not want to check-in a baggage on the outbound flight, but need to check one in on return, can choose a MiNi fare on the outbound flight and a Classic fare on their inbound flight.
5. The final destination
Spectacular views from the Eiffel Tower, a leisurely walk around the Louvre and a fine array of shops to be found in every arrondissement; by capital city standards, Paris truly has it all. You can almost smell the morning aroma oozing from the famous patisseries.
The sights and smells are accompanied by a long list of must-see things to do and see. And with Air France’s MiNi fares from Geneva, Zurich or Basel, there is every reason to return to one of the world’s great capitals, time and time again.
