France has begun to ease its travel restrictions. As well as travelers arriving from states in the wider European area (EU, Andorra, Vatican City, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Norway, San Marino and Switzerland), travelers may now enter France from Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, New Zealand, Rwanda, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia and Uruguay without any requirement to self-isolate, or to demonstrate their travel is essential.
UK travelers/non-EU and EEA nationals resident in the UK will not be permitted entry to France for non-essential purposes. Essential travel is still permitted. These restrictions do not apply to UK nationals who are legally resident in France. You will be allowed to re-enter the country, but may need to show proof of residence.
Exemptions exist for spouses and children of French nationals, long-term residents with French residence permits and their spouses and children, long-term residents of EEA Member States, Andorra, Monaco, San Marino, Switzerland, the United Kingdom or the Vatican City and their spouses and children on their way home, and healthcare professionals. Airline crew, personnel of diplomatic and consular missions and international organizations with offices in France and their spouses and children, and merchant seamen may also still enter. Mask wearing is obligatory for all travelers above the age of 11.
Travelers will need to complete a ‘sworn statement’ (déclaration sur l’honneur) form self-certifying they are not suffering from symptoms associated with COVID-19 and have not been in contact with confirmed cases in the preceding fortnight. This is available in English on the site of the French Embassy London.
Foreign travelers who are not nationals of the above countries or arriving from one of the above countries are still restricted from entering France.
Travelers arriving from outside of the countries listed above must have an International Travel Certificate to enter and transit France, showing that their travel is of an "essential" nature. This must be obtained prior to departure via the French consular offices abroad or online at https://www.interieur.gouv.fr.
Travelers flying to airports in France from such areas will also be required to take a PCR test. They may either provide a negative test result taken less than 72 hours before departure. Whether this test is recommended or obligatory depends on the category your country of departure falls in to:
Category 1 countries: For travelers from Bahrain, Panama, the UAE and the USA. Boarding will be refused if a negative COVID-19 test result is not presented. Those departing the US who have taken a test but do not yet have a result will be able to board with a consular ‘laissez-passer’ on condition they re-take a test on arrival.
Category 2 countries: For travelers from Algeria, Argentina, Armenia, Bolivia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Costa-Rica, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Equatorial Guinea, India , Israel, Kosovo, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Madagascar, Maldives, Mexico, Moldova, Montenegro, Occupied Palestinian territories, Oman, Peru, Qatar, Serbia, South Africa and Turkey. Travelers are strongly recommended to take a test in the 72 hours prior to departure but can opt to take a test on arrival instead.
Arrivals from countries not named above will be invited to present negative test results taken 72 hours prior to departure or may opt to take a test on arrival.
Travelers without a negative test result arriving from Category 2 countries and from countries not named above are subject to quarantine if they refuse to take a test upon arrival.
There are special regulations for travelers transiting through France to return to their country of residence. Only direct transit to reach your country of residence is permitted. Transiting travelers may not leave the international zone and will not be admitted to France. Luggage must be checked through to the final destination, and travelers will not be permitted to leave the international zone to collect and recheck baggage. The duration of transit must be less than 24 hours.

Pros: "Older plane."

Pros: "crew was friendly"
Pros: "individual TVs"
Cons: "it would be great if you could not use all those one-use plastic cups. waste is a real issue in the US and the solution is using re-usable items like washable cups. Unboarding was a nightmare and it started to get really hot waiting to get off."

I felt like he should have paid for half my ticket since he sat in half my seat. Thankfully the flight is short. Had it been my second flight I would have been quite upset."
Pros: "They were quick and efficient."
Pros: "Quick, efficient, affordable!"
Pros: "Like the fact I could watch 2-3 movies. Love the gluten free options for snacks."
Cons: "All of the couples were not assigned seats together. I've never seen anything so stupid. So before the plane took off, about four of us ladies from all over the back of the plane stood up and each jumbled a bunch of seats like a rubix cube so the men could then get up and go sit with their wives."
Pros: "Smooth travel and good service."
Cons: "Bad boarding area in SLC."

Cons: "My flight was delayed and after that they even lost my bags."
Pros: "great flight free movie going down"
Cons: "no free movie/tv coming back"
Pros: "I like Delta's onboard entertainment, Delta Studio. I also like that I can use wifi messaging onboard. The flight attendants did an excellent job as usual. I was in First Class so that was nice. I like the ice cream for dessert. I like the snack variety in First Class."
Cons: "For first class the seat pitch is not great. I had a steak, it was dry. The rest of the meal was OK."
Cons: "Terrible boarding process. I booked the tickets months ago, but didn't have seats until the last minute. They didn't even put my wife and I together, but sandwiched 2 people between us. Boneheads."
Pros: "Plane nice and comfortable"
Pros: "Everything went as I had expected it to, and as I hoped it would. Delta was super on both legs of the journey to Philadelphia."
Pros: "On time departure; staff friendly; no security delays other than TSA now requires taking tablets out of luggage. Almonds instead of peanuts is a welcome change."
Cons: "Leg room on the regional jets. If the airlines narrow the space between seats any more, I will not fit into the seats. I am not overweight, just tall (6’4”). Luckily, the person in the seat in front of me did not recline their seat."
Pros: "Good flight crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation."
Pros: "Gate agents were very helpful and kind"
Cons: "The flight was late. Not a lot of communication as to why."
Pros: "It was good"
Cons: "Crew allowed passenger to leave bag on floor between seats on emergency exit. This is a safety violation."
Pros: "Very friendly staff and the onboard meals were surprisingly good. Korean Air may quite possibly be my favorite airline."
Cons: "Super delayed. Sat on runway for 2.5 hours"
Pros: "Loved the new aircrafts, the flight attendants were friendly and attentive. We landed 40 mins earlier than expected, the captain really sped the whole way and I didn't feel a thing!! The landing didn't even feel as though we were speeding...one of the best flights I've ever had (Jessica England) thank you!"
Cons: "Food options, early morning flights I get you're not going to have real food, but can there be an option to purchase a bagel with cream cheese or croissant, something other than a snack box. I understand the flight is under 3 hours so certain foods aren't available but Delta you upgraded everything else. I enjoy the Tapas box for those that are vegan, kosher, gluten free, etc....PS-the bathrooms are smaller"
Cons: "Awful experience. Delta left us stranded on the runway for 3 hours. Pathetic airline."
Pros: "New plane, nice comfort seat"
Cons: "The snack selection...pretzels or cookies!"
Pros: "New comfort seats. Nice staff. Pilot kept us continuously updated."
Cons: "Unclear info on upgrade [priority boarding when upgraded?]. Inability to upgrade ticket made using mileage points or upgrade at counter at gate."
Cons: "Delayed and crews attitude. Also being seated next to someone when the plain is half empty"
Pros: "GRU to ATL to LEX - all was fine. The plane from GRU to ATL was one of the nicer jets I have ridden in. The ratings above reflect my overall trip of going to Sao Paulo and returning to Lexington, even though the first part had to be re-booked on United."
Cons: "LEX to ATL to GRU did NOT happen because the LEX flights were delayed to the point of missing the ATL connection. While Delta re-booked me on United, my flight arrived 3 hours later than scheduled (so transportation plans had to change), my bag did not successfully move from the Delta flight to the United flight (and was thus delayed in getting to GRU) AND once the bag was received, 4 shirts had been stolen. While a delay/theft claim has been filed with United, this could all have been avoided if the Delta flights had been on time."
Pros: "Boarding was quick"
Cons: "Wi-go didn't really work- crew was unpleasant. We upgraded to first class we were never offered a drink. One of the flight attendants keep using the restrokm"
Pros: "Everything was great! It is however a mystery why the attendants find it hard to smile once in a while. They were all attentive which is more important than serving with a smile."
