Payment method and ticket delivery
Payment method:
You can make a booking and pay for your tickets either online by credit card or cash at your Air France agency.

Electronic Ticketing (paperless travel)
E-ticket is available for most of our routes. Due to increased credit card fraud problems, Air France does not accept third party payments (the credit card holder not being the passenger or part of the group traveling together).
If you pay by credit card and your payment has been approved and processed through our payment portal, then you will receive an e-ticket as long as all sectors are eligible for e-ticketing.

Buy an electronic ticket in 3 steps:

1. Book your flight on-line at least 48 hours before departure. You can recognise eligible routes by the "E" visible on the Flight Availability page.
2. You will receive by e-mail the confirmation of your booking with your itinerary.
3. Once at the airport, please present the form of identification you used during the booking together with the six alphanumeric confirmation number.

If you have chosen credit card payment and advised your credit card number in your booking, this does not mean that payment has been done and that your ticket is issued.

Air France on receipt of your booking, will open a request for secure online payment. Only once this has been approved, will Air France then issue your ticket. If you have not received your ticket within 72 hours, then you will need to make contact with Air France at + (202) 27 70 62 62
