French flag carrier Air France is launching a direct flight from London Heathrow (LHR/EGLL) to Nice in the south of France from the end of June.

Air France will operate the service four times per week on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday from 28th June.

The route will put Air France in direct competition with British Airways who also operate to Nice from Heathrow and Gatwick, and later this month, from Southampton.

A Saturday service will be added during the peak summer from 19th July to 28th August.
