Aigle Azur is a partner of Hanain Airlines, which flies to Xi’an from Paris and Berlin. Since 1993, in addition to its main hub in Haikou, Hainan Airlines has established 11 bases in Beijing, Xi’an, Taiyuan, Urumqi, Guangzhou, Dalian, Shenzhen, Sanya, Hangzhou, Changsha and Chongqing. Its network covers China and other regions of Asia and extends to Europe, North America and the South Pacific. Over 1,400 national and international routes serve more than 110 cities across the world.
Azul becomes Aigle Azur’s new ally. Over four years since its creation, Azul has changed the landscape of Brazilian commercial aviation. In May 2012, an important event marked the company’s history: Azul and Trip signed an association agreement to create the third biggest Brazilian aviation company. Together, Azul and Trip own 126 aeroplanes that serve over 100 destinations, with around 900 flights a day.
Thanks to a code sharing agreement, Azur and Corsair International operate 5 flights a week between Paris and Bamako. Corsair International is a French scheduled airline specialising in international long-haul flights and a subsidiary of TUI France (leader of tourism in France). It employs 200 people and carries 1,200,000 passengers a year. Corsair International operates regular flights to the Caribbean (Guadeloupe and Martinique), the Indian Ocean (Réunion, Mauritius, Mayotte,
Madagascar), Africa (Senegal and Côte d’Ivoire), Canada (Montreal) and Cuba (Havana and Varadero).
Aigle Azur teams up with TAP, the main Portuguese airline, to serve Lisbon, a key European gateway at the crossroads of Africa and North and South America. The Portuguese airline currently flies to 81 destinations in 34 countries. It operates an average of 2,500 flights a week and has a fleet of 77 modern aeroplanes.
Aigle Azur steps up its collaboration with Air Caraïbes, a French scheduled airline and Caribbean specialist. The company offers flights from Paris Orly-Sud to Guadeloupe, Martinique, French Guyana, Haiti, Saint Martin (Juliana), Dominican Republic (Santo Domingo and Punta Cana) and Cuba (Havana and Santiago de Cuba). Air Caraïbes is also the first French company to connect the provinces and Belgium to the Caribbean from Paris Orly-Sud thanks to the TGV AIR eco-mobile solution.
Since launching its service to Moscow, Aigle Azur has secured the partnership of S7 Airlines (Siberia Airlines), which boasts a large network of domestic routes in Russia and is based out of Moscow (Domodedovo) and Novosibirsk (Tolmachevo). S7 Airlines also offers regular flights to the countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia and the Asia-Pacific region.
