PARIS, June 15 (AFP) - The collapse last month of part of a terminal at Charles de Gaulle airport outside Paris has prompted Air France to change the times of some of its transatlantic flights, the airline said in a statement Tuesday.

Flights to Toronto, Boston, Miami and Rio de Janeiro were especially affected.

"These time revisions will take place all through the summer season, as required," Air France said.

It added that it would provide alternative arrangements for passengers as needed.

The collapse of part of the modern Terminal 2E on May 23 killed four passengers and cut capacity at Charles de Gaulle airport by 15 percent. Air France was one of the heaviest users of the terminal, which was used for long-haul flights.
