Delta Air Lines and Air France will offer year-round nonstop service between Nice Côte d’Azur Airport and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. The Nice-New York flight supports a number of high-profile events in the Côte d’Azur region, including the Cannes Film Festival, of which Air France is official airline, the Monaco Grand Prix and the Nice Jazz Festival.
The flight is the only service to link the French Riviera region to the United States nonstop and previously ran for 10 months each year, with a temporary stop between the end of January and the start of the summer season in March.
Operated daily by Delta in conjunction with Air France, the flight will continue four times a week throughout the winter season. Delta will use a 245-seat Boeing 767-400 aircraft on services between Nice and New York through December and a 210-seat Boeing 767-300 aircraft from January to March 2016.
Highly committed to promoting France abroad, especially Nice, Air France KLM and its partner Delta carried 120,000 American passengers to and from Nice in 2014.

These include fully flat-bed seats in a 1x2x1 configuration with Westin Heavenly Inflight Bedding from Westin Hotels & Resorts.
