Air France Regional

Sat Feb 04, 2006 10:34 am

Hi All, and thanks in advance for any replies.

I came across the following photo and was curious about which routes Air France Regional would fly these aircraft. The photo was taken in Zurich, and I am sure it's safe to assume they would not fly the small Embraer from Zurich to Paris. Thanks!

Two routes that are flown with the Embraer-120 are:

Zurich-Lyon
Basel/Mulhouse-Clermont/Ferrand

There are many more, mostly French domestic...

Regards,

BCN-BOD was served by an EM2 in a daily basis flight until the new ER3 replace it.

ZRH-CDG is only about 260nm, not sure why this would be a problem for this aircraft at all?

I think ZRH-CDG would be a popular route so larger a/c would be used  Smile

Thanks everyone! I am actually surprised Zurch-Lyon is one of the routes, as I could see that filling up an A318/A319/A320 family aircraft or 737-500 quite easily.

And yes, I meant ZRH-CDG would be a more in demand route rather than too far of a distance, but thanks!

Ah - sorry, I thought you were referring to the distance  Smile
