With the arrival of the new plane, the airline’s fleet will be expanded to three aircraft. The new A321neos will gradually replace the existing two Boeing 757-200s.
La Compagnie, launched in 2014, offers regularly scheduled all-business class flights between Paris Orly Airport and New York Newark. The brand new Airbus A321neo is scheduled to operate on the Paris-New York route from June 2019. In addition to this service, the carrier started its new seasonal route between New York Newark and Nice Cote d’Azur Airport earlier this month.
