During the Paris Air Show 2019, La Compagnie and Airbus invited us to discover the brand new aircraft of the French Business airline, an opportunity for us so to present, following the Boeing 757 we already introduced.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

he first impression before entering the aircraft is this wonderful blue and black livery. La Compagnie decided to trust in Airbus and its A321NEO for its transatlantic flights, as many airlines adopted it, such as Air Transat. The A321NEO is perfectly adapted for La Compagnie, its efficiency and the cabin density is one of the many assets of this aircraft.

La Compagnie is flying its Airbus A321s from Paris to Newark up to 3 times a day. Flights are leaving the French capital city between 11 am and 7.30 pm and all of them are flying by night from Newark to Paris.
