Air France offer low cost MiNi

Air France is offering low-cost tickets to 58 destinations in France, Europe and north Africa in a new strategy to fight off budget rivals such as Ryanair and Easyjet. France’s national airline is offering a ticket, called the “MiNi”, at €49 (including tax) one-way, for travel as from 6 February, a saving of €20 on the lowest “Classic” Air France one-way fare.

The MiNi price does not include checked luggage, which costs an extra €15 per bag per flight if booked online and €30 if purchased at the airport. It does not earn air miles, it is not transferable or refundable but it does offer the same in-flight services and the same booking facilities, such as smart phones and tablets, as the other ticket classes.

The MiNi is available on flights out of Paris Orly and on medium haul flights from Marseille, Nice and Toulouse. Overseas destinations include Istanbul, Tel Aviv, Athens, Tunis, Algeria, Marrakech, Berlin, Copenhagen, London, Moscow and Prague. The company plans to expand the availability of the MiNi on its medium-haul network in due course.

Air France is in the process of restructuring the airline to save €2 billion in the next two years.
