Level could cancel ORY-LAS and ORY-BOS routes.

The former was launched last Autumn and the latter should have started in March.

Great development for NCE. Oman Air was also rumored a couple of years ago but no news since.
Is Kuwait Airways coming back this year? No flights are available yet and nothing is mentioned anywhere.

It looks as if TopOfTravel are chartering Enter Air to fly from Meaulte / Albert Picardie airport near Amiens to Palermo to take people on holiday on 08-May and possibly also 15-May

I had no idea that Meaulte was able to handle a 737 with 150+ pax - had assumed it was strictly Airbus manufacture, general aviation and cargo

Anyone know more about this ? Is this a first in a long time for Meaulte ?

Looks like they are going to be offering relatively good connections from the US and Canada which is good.

Vancouver - Pape’ete & v.v. route has been confirmed. It is not confirmed if Air Tahiti Nui or Air France will operate the flight. If Air France operates the flight, it is undecided if CDG or PPT based F/A’s will crew this flight. TN will codeshare on AF flights in the event AF operates YVR - PPT services. And lastly, there is a rumor floating around that AF may drop LAX - PPT flying in favor of code sharing on TN PPT - LAX services if AF is awarded to operate the YVR - PPT flight. I will update this information once I receive more confirmations.

Does AF have crew based at PPT? I was under the impression that it was just a layover.

Yes. CDG based cabin crew are not rostered on the LAX-PPT-LAX flight. Only the local AF PPT-based cabin crew living in French Polynesia are rostered on the PPT-LAX-PPT flight. Additionally, CDG-based pilots are rostered on the LAX-PPT-LAX flights.

But without passengers. At this time, only air Tahiti Nui has the rights to fly with passengers between Tahiti and France.

Groupe Dubreuil negotiated with Airbus a postponement of one year for its four A350-1000 deliveries — two for Air Caraibes and two for French bee. They seek to be delivered in 2021-2022 period instead.

Luxair must be suffering a lot without business traffic. No more LUX-LCY at 500 EUR return. And business traffic at previous levels will not come back any soon.

Finist'air will run a few scheduled flights between Brest and both Belle-Île-en-Mer and Île d'Yeu on Saturdays over the summer. They are also running day trips to Jersey and Guernsey, but these are slightly less exotic airports. Normally they just run PSO flights (11 rotations per week) between Brest and Ouessant/Ushant offshore.

Île d'Yeu has both a heliport in the harbour in Port Joinville, the main town, and a separate aerodrome with a small landing strip 4 km away. While the heliport gets regular scheduled passenger/cargo service from Oya Vendée Helicoptères, the air strip on Île d'Yeu has not had scheduled commercial passenger service for a very long time (note wikipedia over-simplifies on the heliport/aerodrome subject)

A tour operator is trying to sell day trips from Brest to these 2 island with a minibus tour and meal all packaged in, but it's possible to book just a one-way or return air ticket with Finist'air

What is the price ?

I had never heard of this airline despite having family (and my parents holiday home) in Finistère. Flying a Cessna Caravan to Ouessant would be a worthy experience (I've already spent several weeks on Belle-Ile but never been to Ouessant).

According to the french union FO, here are the changes about the LYS hub :

- AF will stay on the CDG route
- Transavia will operate the NTE / BOD / TLS sectors instead of HOP
- Hop will continue to operate routes to BES / BIQ / CFR / LIL / MRS / MXP / NCE / PUF / RNS / SXB
- flights to BLQ / BRU / LRT / ETZ / NUE / ORY / PIS / PRG / FCO / VCE to be dropped

I thought Lyon-Marseille can be done by train in well under 2 hours... is it really worth flying this route just for connecting pax ?

I see the Air Saint-Pierre transatlantic flight between Saint-Pierre FSP and CDG is operating again this summer using an ASL '737. This along with 2 ATR flights a week to Montreal are the island's only links during Covid. Other flights to Halifax, Îles-de-la-Madeleine and St. John's are cancelled as well as the ferry to Newfoundland.

I wouldn't call it 'well under,' but it can be done in under 2:00 about 15 trains a day.

    I understand that since approx 1980, Le Bourget airport near Paris has been general aviation only
    If one purchases a seat-only ticket for flights on a scheduled airline from a travel agent that organises a trip to/from Le Bourget, what happens ?

    I've been offered the chance to buy a one way seat only ticket from a scheduled airline, departing from Le Bourget. The airline operates only aircraft with more than 25 seats. The airline is reputable - I have bought a ticket from them in the past for travel between other airports without a problem

    If I pay for the ticket, and then turn up at Le Bourget, will I be able to board the aircraft, or will I just be told that the airline was naughty and that instead of transport I have to accept a refund instead ?
