Double celebrations over at Aigle Azur, as the French airline has received its brand new Airbus A320 (msn 3242) AND debuted its impressive new livery on the aircraft.

The latest addition to Aigle Azur’s fleet arrived at Paris Orly-Sud airport, featuring a two-class configuration with 36 business class seats and 138 economy class seats.

Including the new A320, Aigle Azur’s fleet has now grown to 13 aircraft, which are a combination of A321s, A320s and A319s (in single-class, 2-class and 3-class configurations).

Founded in 1946 by Sylvain Floirat, Aigle Azur is the oldest private French company and has a vast historical heritage. Taken over by the GoFast Group in 2001, it currently operates flights to Algeria, Mali, Portugal, Tunisia and, as of recently, Russia, with departures from nine major French airports.

According to the financial year ending 31 March 2012, the company generated a turnover of 330 million euros. Aigle Azur transported 1.8 million passengers in 2012 aboard its 300 scheduled flights each week.

    I think it looks way nicer than their old livery! Makes it a bit more modern. Before it used to look cheap in my opinion. They definitely did a good job!

  2. I have never heard about this company before :S
