Air France has plans to launch a new lower-cost air carrier that will offer flights at a 20 percent drop from their current offerings. The airlines will start offering flights by the winter of 2017, and then offer longer haul flights by 2018.
However, the airline is making it clear that this is not one of those other low-cost carriers where all the amenities are dropped with the price. The airline released a statement explaining.
“It will not be positioned as a low-cost carrier. It will have standards similar to Air France.”
The name of the carrier has not been announced yet, but the project is currently being referred to as Boost. By the year 2020 they plan to have 28 planes in the carrier, all of which will have wi-fi. The flight routes will go to some destinations that have had lower profits in the past.
