Air France’s Ready to Fly pre-travel health document verification service offers customers the certainty of knowing they have all the health documents required for their destination before they arrive at the airport. Air France has worked to assist its customers throughout the pandemic by enabling them to easily check the health documents required by the authorities of their destination with information updated in real time on the airfrance.traveldoc.aero website. Air France’s Ready to Fly takes this one step further.
A few days prior to departure, customers traveling on eligible flights receive an email inviting them to upload health documents on an Air France online platform; the documents are then checked, with a confirmation message sent to customers if they are complete. Boarding passes will be issued and marked Ready to Fly, allowing for quick processing at the airport on the day of departure. Customers with missing or incomplete documents receive a notification message.
The free, optional service ensures a smoother customer journey through the airport by eliminating successive checks. Tested since June, Ready to Fly is now available on flights from Paris to Corsica and French overseas destinations, and will be gradually rolled out over the summer to more destinations.

Ancient Greeks believed Helios, the Sun God, caused sunsets by driving his fiery chariot into the sea. Standing at water’s edge in Mykonos, watching the sky slowly turn from purple to inky black, you almost believe it.

The prospect of a post-visit treasure hunting session inside the shops of landmark museums such as the Louvre in Paris, the Uffizi Gallery in Florence and The British Museum in London can be irresistible. However, some of Europe’s smaller and more unusual museums boast retail spaces with a surprising “wow” factor, often as well-curated as the galleries.

I hadn’t even made it to my first cup of coffee when I got an early phone call from my sister, who lives two time zones away. “OMG, Kristy, Patsy Cline came on twice while I was driving the kids to school today,” she laughed. “You know what that means, right?” We both gasped and then instantly began singing the lyrics to “La Bamba,” an inside joke we’d shared since our family’s Alaskan cruise decades ago when we, unintentionally, won the ship’s karaoke contest among a sea of Patsy Cline tributes.
