Many may only know of Seattle as the home to Fraiser Crane from the TV show, but the emerald city has far more to offer than just fictional radio shrinks!  The city is surrounded by water with lush vegetation and dominated by Mount Rainier.  There is a lot to offer the savvy European tourist, there are numerous stores for all tastes and pockets. The city also has a vibrant and bohemian atmosphere and environment with plenty of history, art and culture to soak up. Yes, it might be known as one of the wettest places in America, it is after all 'The Rain City' but there is so much more than a fair bit of precipitation in the air.   And whilst the city has a long history, it also has modern big business with Microsoft being here as well as one of the globes biggest aircraft manufacturers, Boeing, whose plant is a big as some small towns!

During the 2017-18 winter season, Air France will serve 12 destinations in the USA on departure from Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York-JFK, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington.

With over 270 transatlantic flights and a fleet of close to 140 aircraft, the joint venture between Air France-KLM, Alitalia and Delta Air Lines offers customers the benefits of a vast network offering more frequencies, preferential rates and harmonized services across the Atlantic. The joint venture network is organized around seven main hubs - Amsterdam-Schiphol, Atlanta, Detroit, Minneapolis, New York-JFK, Paris-CDG and Rome-FCO, as well as Cincinnati, Salt Lake City, Seattle and Los Angeles.

The joint venture allows customers to access more than 270 destinations beyond the 27 North American gateways and offers over 215 destinations beyond the 30 European gateways throughout Europe, Asia and Latin America. This alliance represents over 20% of total transatlantic capacity and generates approximately 10 billion dollars in anticipated annual revenue. In accordance with the terms of this agreement, the partners jointly operate their transatlantic routes, thus sharing revenue and costs.
