NEW BUS ROUTE
Paris’s bus route is being updated for the first time in 70 years in an effort to create better links between the French capital and its surrounding suburbs. Four new bus lines will be added to the system and there will be updates to the 57 existing lines, meaning that 65% of the current route will change. The plans are set to be in place by the end of 2018.
Air France passengers can now postpone the time of their flight at no extra cost. Customers can push back their departure time via the ‘After Show’ option which is available via online check-in, interactive kiosks or at the airport desk. The After Show option is based on seat availability in economy and the request must be made on the day of the original departure.
TRAVEL IN STYLE
Eurotunnel has inaugurated a brand new lounge for its Flexiplus clients at its Coquelles terminal. The new lounge was opened to celebrate the company’s millionth client using the Flexiplus service since its launch back in 2006. The service allows clients to have a flexible ticket which they can modify and cancel at no extra charge while benefitting from priority loading on the Shuttle. The new building at Coquelles, just outside Calais, known as the William Turner lounge, offers 500m2 of space with comfortable waiting areas.
COMPARE THE MARKET
Drivers in France can now use their smartphone to find the cheapest petrol in their area, thanks to a new government website. By entering what kind of fuel they need, along with their postcode or department area, the site will identify a choice of petrol stations, listing the location and prices so the driver can compare.
