Aigle Azur : History
Aigle Azur is a French airline company founded in 1946. It belongs to the group GoFast which offers regular flights from France to destinations in Algeria, Portugal, Tunisia, Mali and Russia. Aigle Azur flights also connect passengers with the main cities in Morocco, like Casablanca, Marrakech, Agadir, Fes, Tangier and Oujda. Therefore, although Aigle Azur does not offer direct flights from the UK, it is possible that you may have to take an Aigle Azur connection from France if you wish to visit one of these destinations. In 2010 Aigle Azur and Air Mali created a partnership which allowed the French airline company to advertise flights to other cities in Africa such as Dakar, Abidjan and Brazzaville. In 2010 the Aigle Azur route map was extended further to include Baghdad, however this connection is no longer available due to lack of popularity.Aigle Azur is a member of the Chinese group HNA which owns 48% of Aigle Azur shares. Later, in 2012 the French airline company joined Corsair in a partnership which continues to this day.Aigle Azur's main base is at the Paris Orly Airport in France. The Aigle Azur fleet serves flights to 23 destinations from 10 different airports in France and directs more than 300 flights each week.
