vol direct/sans escale


This content is available in French only.

Il ne faut pas confondre les termes vol direct et vol sans escale.

Un vol sans escale (non-stop flight) est un vol ininterrompu, sans changement d’avion.

Un vol direct (direct flight) peut comporter une ou plusieurs escales sans changement d’avion. On dit aussi :

  • direct
  • vol aérien transitaire
  • vol-trans-direct (France)

L’emploi de l’expression calquée vol non-stop est déconseillé, quoiqu’elle soit attestée dans certains ouvrages.
