Miami to Paris Bound? There’s an Upstart Airline To Get You to the City of Light

“From France, the Miami route choice was a natural connection because it is a dreamy destination for Parisians—and a gateway hub to cruise ports to additional attractive leisure destinations.”

Now there’s a smart way to get to the City of Light. French Bee, the upstart 7-year-old airline, now offers direct service between Miami International Airport and Paris Orly Airport. Miami joins Los Angeles, San Francisco and Newark, N.J. as convenient gateways to Paris. (French Bee also offers a direct route from San Francisco to Papeete, Tahiti.)  

“From France, the Miami route choice was a natural connection because it is a dreamy destination for Parisians—and a gateway hub to cruise ports to additional attractive leisure destinations,” says French Bee’s president, Marc Rochet. “With the access that French Bee’s Miami service provides, we are pleased to see both Paris and Miami forge more economic and tourism ties.” With 411 seats, the aircraft offers two classes—economy and a 35-seat premium economy option.  

Anyone who has flown into France understands the ease of Orly as opposed to the larger Charles de Gaulle. “Orly is an overall less congested and more convenient location for travelers flying in and out of Paris,” Rochet says. “Many legacy carriers and larger carriers already have spots at CDG, so we offer a favorable location to passengers because it only takes 20 minutes to travel via car into the city versus 40 to 45 minutes from CDG airport.” 

To Rochet, the fleet’s technology is a big drawing card: “French Bee’s flights are operated by an all Airbus A350 fleet, [and that airplane is] recognized as one of the world’s most modern and efficient aircrafts. The Airbus A350 is outfitted with the latest generation in innovative design and technology. Mood lighting mimics sunrise and sunset with 100% LEDs—improving sleep quality and reducing jet lag.”

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
