Air France launches new bare-bones 'mini' fare for those travelling light

Flying to your destination just got cheaper, as long as you’re looking to travel light.

Air France is now selling new ‘MiNi’ fares aimed at those flying short-haul without checked baggage.

Tickets start from €49 (£40) one-way, including fees and taxes – around €20 (£16) less than a normal economy airfare.

You’ll still receive the same service on the plane, but won’t be able to select your seat, earn frequent flyer points, make a change to your ticket or get a refund.

Check in a bag and you’ll pay an extra €15 (£12) online or €30 (£24) at the airport.

You will be allowed to change your assigned seat at the airport, if there’s availability.

The new lower fares are available for travel from February 6 and will be limited initially to domestic flights from Paris Orly and flights across Europe from Marseille, Nice and Toulouse.

Air France said it would extend its MiNi fares to 58 destinations in France, Europe and the Mediterranean “at a later date.”

They will include MiNi fares on flights between London City and Paris Orly, giving Brits an affordable option for a weekend getaway.

It’s all part of the airline’s effort to win over price sensitive travellers in the face of competition from budget airlines and France’s high-speed trains.
