Aigle Azur launches long-haul flights

The twin aircraft, fitted with Pratt & Whitney PW4000 engines, will offer an economy class, an economy+ class, and a business class with seats convertible into perfectly horizontal beds. Each class will have an individual state-of-the-art in-flight on-request entertainment system. Both A330 jets will join Aigle Azur’s fleet in the first quarter of 2018, bringing the airline’s total number of aircraft to 12 (one A319, nine A320s and two A330s).


The order gives a major boost to the airline’s growth initiated several weeks ago by

CEO Frantz Yvelin, marking an unprecedented strategic turn.


Since my arrival,” CEO Frantz Yvelin said, we’ve worked with all the Aigle Azur teams, whom I thank, on drawing up an ambitious new strategic plan. Everybody’s involved, which makes me feel very proud and happy. The planned arrival of the two Airbus A330s is another big step in the growth of our young 71-year-old airline, which will soon start operating long-haul flights, opening up new horizons while ensuring our long-term position as leader between France and Algeria, Portugal, Mali, Senegal, Lebanon, and Germany .
