Paris- AeroFrance has recently shaken up the French aviation community by placing its first ever narrow body order.
During a press event the CEO said the introduction of the new Fokker's is in part to connect AeroFrance with several focus cities around Europe.
"At the moment Amsterdam, London and Madrid are flown to from some of our bases, though we intend to serve these cities from all bases. To accomplish this the Fokkers will be introduced to connect the dots."
Initially the priority will be strengthening connections to our overseas bases by allowing passengers to transfer to and from Paris within Europe, as well as via our HUB at de Gaulle.
With the order for 50 F120NGs AeroFrance has also revealed its new livery and logo:
AeroFrance is currently busy renewing it's A330 fleet, by adding A330NEO's (deliveries starting soon) and on the verge of European expansion.
AeroFrance operates from French bases through the entire world with the largest being the base at Reunion, followed by Martinique, Tahiti and Guadeloupe.
Currently Buenos Aires serves as the companies main focus city outside of France, with 35 weekly flights to and from our bases with AeroFrance and additional 28 by PacAir.
In the near future additional flights will add Amsterdam (upwards of 35 flights), Bangkok (42 weekly flights), London (upwards of 25 flights) and Madrid (upwards of 35 flights) to our focus city network.
