Low-cost carrier French Bee is creating quite a buzz with its route announcements this year.

Miami has been announced as the airline’s newest U.S. route — and it’s set to launch on December 15, 2022.

“Paris remains one of the most desired international destinations in the world for South Floridians and with the continued growth that Miami is witnessing, we are confident that this is the best market for our first Southeast route,” said Marc Rochet, President at French Bee.

Here’s what you need to know about French Bee’s upcoming arrival in Miami (MIA).

French Bee Buzzes Into Miami

French Bee will operate 3 nonstop flights each week between Paris-Orly (ORY), the city’s leisure-focused airport, and Miami (MIA).

Flights will operate on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays according to the following schedule:

  • Depart Miami (MIA) 9 p.m. — Arrive Paris (ORY) 11:40 a.m. (+1)
  • Depart Paris (ORY) 2:30 p.m. — Arrive Miami (MIA) 6:45 p.m.

The airline has confirmed that there will be a fourth-weekly service starting in April 2023, but it has yet to confirm which day of the week it’ll operate.

Flights will be operated by the airline’s state-of-the-art Airbus A350-900 aircraft. These jets pack in a total of 376 standard economy seats in a tight 3-4-3 configuration.

For comparison, full-service carriers like British Airways, Delta, and Virgin Atlantic all offer a more comfortable economy experience on their A350s with a 3-3-3 configuration.

Like other long-haul, low-cost carriers, French Bee offers the option to upgrade your experience with a smaller “premium” cabin. French Bee’s version is called Premium Class and it features 35 larger seats with more recline in a 2-3-2 configuration.

Premium Class passengers will also be served a meal which the airline promises to be a “long shot from the simple choice of chicken or fish.”

French Bee’s U.S. Network

French Bee’s inaugural route to the U.S. was to San Francisco (SFO) back in 2018 as part of its 1-stop service to Tahiti, French Polynesia (PPT). Soon after, Los Angeles (LAX) and Newark (EWR) joined the Orly-based carrier’s route network.

When Miami flights launch in December, the South Florida city will be the Orly-based carrier’s fourth U.S. destination.

If you live outside the 4 cities mentioned above, you could hop on an Alaska Airlines flight and connect seamlessly to a French Bee flight to Paris thanks to the airlines’ interline agreement.

Final Thoughts

From December 2022, French Bee will operate nonstop service between Miami (MIA) and Paris (ORY). The airline’s new route will provide a welcome low-cost alternative for passengers looking to travel between the 2 cities.
