Air France unveiled the details of its partnership with executive charter operator Wijet for first-class connections. Starting today, passengers of the “La Première” cabin on long-haul flights from Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport can buy an optional connecting flight to and from their final destination aboard one of Wijet’s Cessna Citation Mustangs.

Air France claims the fare, €2,400 ($3,300) per hour, is 40-percent less expensive than that of Air France’s rivals–Lufthansa offers a similar service in partnership with NetJets. Price applies per aircraft, meaning the Air France first-class passenger can take up to three travel companions, providing they each have a business-class ticket.

The connections are available to or from 1,200 airports located within two-and-a-half hours of Charles de Gaulle Airport. On board, newspapers, touchscreen tablets and satellite telephone services are free. Passengers are also taken by car to and from their next flight at Charles de Gaulle.

Wijet, which was founded in 2009 and based at Paris Le Bourget Airport, has long advertised a slightly cheaper fare of €2,200 ($3,000) per flight hour.
