What Happened To Uta?

Tue May 14, 2002 12:43 pm

Was UTA absorbed by Air France? I don't think there was a sexier looking plane than UTA's DC-10's. What a shame.

First, a DC10 was shot down over Chad, then the whole airline went down.
I loved them too, their planes looked great!

Hello,

Well... Not exactly Setjet. It was decided to merge the two airlines because there was a growing and growing tough competition from Asian and North American carriers. France, like Canada, the United Kingdom had developed two large international carriers, and it was not viable to keep two local carriers that were trying to overlap and compete against each another while not having the size to compete with other large international majors.

And as you know the consequence of this, in all three countries I mentioned, was a merger.


Best regards,
Alain Mengus
