Start-Ups Group Dubreuil rebrands French Blue
The French start-up carrier French Blue has announced the renaming into “French”.
From its hub Paris Orly, French Blue offers long haul low cost flights since September 2016. In the first year, the carrier flew to Punta Cana and Saint-Denis on the island of Réunion.
In May 2018, the carrier plans to open a new route from Paris to Faa’a International Airport in French Polynesia via San Francisco Airport. Due to a high similarity of the carrier’s name French Blue with a US airline, US authorities recommended a change of name. Therefor French Blue officially announced to rebrand as French. French’s management announced the new name is only an interim solution as the team is developing a new brand concept.
French blue is a subsidiary of the French holding company Group Dubreuil. In addition to French Blue, the company owns Guadeloupe-based Air Caraibes.
French Blue operates a fleet of one Airbus A330-300 with 378 seats (28 Premium, 350 Economy) and one A350-900 with 411 seats (35 Premium, 376 Economy).
