About Aigle Azur

Aigle Azur is France's second biggest air carrier after their national airline Air France. It was founded in 1946 and is based in Tremblay en France in suburban Paris. In the past it was a long-haul airline and operated flights to what is now Vietnam, however it has since shifted to a more regional focus. It primary focus these days is on operating mostly short and medium-haul routes. These operations are spread across Paris Orly Airport, Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, Marseille Provence Airport and Lyon Saint Exupery Airport. Its fleet is made up of 10 Airbus A319 and A320 airplanes.
