Air Inter Question

Sun Jan 30, 2000 12:20 am

Does Air Inter's route network currently include any routes outside of France? I know they had A-330s for a while. If there are int'l destinations, where are they?

Air Inter does not exist since it merged with Air France. They used to fly to Dublin.

(Slaps forehead) Jeez, I guess I've been out of the France loop too long. Sorry! When did THAT happen?

Well after the take-over of UTA and Air Inter by Air France, UTA was fully absorbed, but Air Inter was left serving it's usual domestic routes plus the odd hand-me -down like Dublin ( I thought it was a successful route) [PS I'm Irish so nobody get on and start going on about my hand-me-down route bit]
Anyway, then Air Inter became Air Inter Europe and more routes were added to the network, unsure which ones, I think Brussels etc.., some Spainish etc (could be wrong)
Then they finally became Air France Europe about two years ago. So as Teahan said Air Inter doesn't actually exist anymore. I think the slow absorbtion was to try and appease the Unions which are quite strong in France. As for the Dublin-Paris route is was handed over to CityJet which is a code share partner of AF.
I know a lot more comments could be added to fill in all the gaps, so hopefully my few details can jog peoples minds in the situation.
PS I think it's just Air France now, instead of AF Europe
