Whats's The Future Of Corsair?

Tue May 15, 2007 4:46 am

TUI's French subsidiary Corsair handles the better part of the French long-haul charter business.
After the most recent orders by TUI and First Choice for 787's (12 for First Choice and 11 -unconfirmed - for TUI ),how will look the transfers within the TUI subsidiaries of those planes.(Arkefly,Jetairfly etc..)
Will Corsair (Tuifly France ) still be alive in some years ?? have there any recent Long Haul order been considered for France ?

The future of SS is uncertain.It will depend of the good or bad results in the one or two years to come.
If they lose money again , probably TUI will sell them.
Some other airlines will fill the gap left in case of deasappearing of SS........

That's said , i do not see any 787s at SS , simply as it is far too small for PTP , FDF and RUN.
For time now , heard of rumors about 777-300ERs to replace 744s.
These 744s will not stay very long in the SS fleet , about 6 or 8 years , not more.

Please take this as rumors only , as nothing is official by now.

This is the first time I hear that SS is losing money. I thought they may have been doing decently, given the recent rumours of them starting up a route to LIR.

What carrier is TUI using for short and medium-haul leisure flights out of France?

Corsair had hard times in 2005 & 2006 due to the outbreak of a mosquito-transmitted disease called Chikungunya in the French island Réunion in the Indian ocean during the northern winter 2005-2006. This outbreak has affected also all the nearby islands like Mauritius, Madagascar, Seychelles but RUN was the most affected. And RUN was at that time the largest market for Corsair leading them to loose a lot of money as no more tourists were going there.

The drama related to getting their 744's into service could not have helped matters either.
