Airlines Joon to add six new destinations in 2019
Low-cost carrier Joon has announced, that the airline will add six destinations to its route network for summer 2019.
Six new destinations will be added to Joon´s network. All flights will be performed with Airbus aircraft and are expected to commence with the beginning of the summer flight schedule in 2019.
Most of the routes have previously been operated by Air France. The French flag carrier is the parent company of Joon and gradually drops routes to its low-cost subsidiary.
In Europe, Joon will start serving Madrid, Stockholm, Prague and Manchester. The flights will be performed with Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft, which can accommodate 174 passengers and 212 passengers respectively. Madrid will be served six times a day, Stockholm four times a day and Prague and Manchester three times a day.
Additionally, Joon will take over Air France´s route from Paris Charles de Gaulle to Saint Martin in the Caribbean and will start serving Quito in South America. Both destinations will be served with Airbus A340-300 aircraft. This aircraft type can welcome 278 passengers on board, 30 in Business class, 21 in Premium Economy and 227 in Economy. Saint Martin will be served on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays, while Quito will be connected to the French capital on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Joon initially launched in September 2017 and has carried more than two million passengers since then. Air France describes Joon as “an innovation laboratory for the Air France group”. The airline´s public appearance is very modern and targets to especially address younger people.
Currently, Joon is operating flights to destinations like Barcelona, Berlin, Lisbon, Proto, Fortaleza in Brazil and Mahé in the Seychelles. Its fleet consists of 28 Airbus aircraft, including 18 A320/321s and 10 A340s. Joon is expected to use Air France´s A350s as well. More than 500 people are currently employed by Joon.
