Which payment methods are accepted on the Air France website?

Several payment methods may be used on our website, depending on the contents of your cart (destination, travel dates, options, etc.).

Secure and confidential payment

When you submit a payment on our website, your payment data is encrypted and transmitted via a secure connection. We use the highest online encryption standards for all data transmitted online (SSL V3, a Norton Secured security certificate).
Some transactions are processed through our partner Global Collect. Your payment data is transmitted to Global Collect via a secure connection and for the sole purpose of processing your requested payment. Your data is never communicated to third parties or used for commercial purposes.

Payment methods

Debit and credit cards

We accept American Express, Diners Club, Maestro/Switch, Mastercard, Visa and UATP/AirPlus. Electronic debit cards (“e-cartes bleues”) are not accepted.
Please note that bank fees may apply in some countries.

For VISA and Mastercard/Maestro payments, your bank may use an additional security system called 3D Secure.


You can pay for your ticket by e-voucher (also called EMD), as long as the total amount of the reservation is greater than the amount of the e-voucher. The remaining balance must be paid by debit or credit card.

Payment instructions
During the reservation process, enter your e-voucher (EMD) number in the dedicated field. You may use a 2nd voucher, with a maximum of 2 e-vouchers per passenger. Next, validate your vouchers by clicking the “Calculate” button. Your reservation total is updated and you simply need to pay the remaining balance by debit or credit card (the total amount of your e-vouchers must be less than the reservation total).

Please note:
  • E-vouchers are non-transferrable and must be issued in the same name as the name indicated in the reservation.
  • Each passenger may use up to 2 e-vouchers per reservation.
  • E-vouchers may not be used to pay for flight options (Time to Think, travel insurance, etc.).
