Book a flight

You can choose from various payment methods for your flight reservation, depending on the time of the booking. But whichever method you choose, you can rest assured that your payment is always safe.

Ever wondered how the price of your ticket is made up? Many passengers are unclear as to the real cost of a ticket and exactly how high the surcharges are. With this in mind, Air France has now made the price structure of its tickets more transparent. Below you will find an overview of the various costs, taxes and surcharges

Payment options

Credit card

You can pay by credit card when booking a ticket at We accept MasterCard, VISA, American Express, Diners Club and UATP card. After you have selected your flight, choose ‘credit card´ under the payment options. Next, select the organisation that issued the credit card. Enter all necessary details and confirm your booking. Once your payment has been authorized, you will be sent an e-ticket by e-mail.


Your payment details will be encoded and sent using a secure connection.
You can check the security details by clicking with your right mouse button on the payment page and then selecting ‘Properties´. A window will pop up containing all connection data. The ‘Connection´ field shows that an SSL connection is used. Your credit card information, including the number and expiration date, will not be stored

Verified by Visa and MasterCard Secure Code

Some banks offer holders of Visa or MasterCard an additional security measure in the form of a PIN code or password. This tells both the bank and us that you are the rightful owner or user of the card. If your card is eligible for the ‘Verified by Visa´ or ‘MasterCard Secure Code´ security measure, you will be asked to enter your PIN code or password. The payment will only be accepted if the correct code or password is entered.

For more information on Verified by Visa or MasterCard Secure Code, we recommend contacting your bank.

Credit card surcharge to compensate for rising costs

More and more air travellers are using a credit card to pay for their tickets. This increasing credit card usage has resulted in rising costs for Air France. To compensate for these costs, we are forced to charge a surcharge of USD 12 per person (with the exception of infants) for tickets booked by credit card. The surcharge applies to all credit cards.

Of course, you can continue to use other - free - payment methods for your online bookings such as Bank Transfer or Bank deposit or by paying by cash via the Air France agency.
