Air France: New Airline ‘Joon’ to Start Flights in December 2017

Joon, Air France’s “new generation travel experience”, will start operations on December 1, 2017, to six destinations departing from Paris.

“Joon is a new model of airline, between a traditional and low-cost airline, a new travel experience for all customers,” Franck Terner, CEO of Air France, said in an announcement.

Starting December 1, 2017, in Europe from 39 euros (including tax), Joon will fly from Paris to Barcelona, Spain (51 weekly flights); Berlin, Germany (37 weekly flights); Lisbon, Portugal (28 weekly flights); and Porto, Portugal (3 weekly flights).

Two more destinations will be added in summer 2018, from Paris to Fortaleza, Brazil, starting at 249 euros including tax (2 weekly flights) and Mahé, Seychelles, starting at 299 euros including tax (3 weekly flights).

The routes will be enabled by Airbus A320 / A321 and Airbus A340 / A350.

According to Terner, Joon is one of Air France’s major projects as part of the strategic plan “Trust Together” and will be one of the airline’s priorities in its offensive to win back market share.

“Joon will accelerate the group’s development and will be an integral part of the group’s network and portfolio of airlines: complementary and extremely powerful on departure from France,” he added.

The new airline, especially aimed at the so called “millennials”, will offer free catering in the Business cabin and a new paid option in Economy. A choice of drinks will be offered free of charge at all times of the day. Also, Joon will enable customers to access in-flight streaming, on their own smartphone, tablet or laptop.

“To create Joon, we worked together to define a new offer in the air transport industry, in a spirit of creativity, innovation and agility,” Jean-Michel Mathieu, CEO of Joon, said.

“Joon is Air France’s little sister, who breaks with tradition and takes inspiration from the new expectations of travellers to offer an experience that goes beyond the aircraft doors,” Mathieu added.

With its chic sportswear look, the uniform of Joon’s 140 flight attendants reflects the spirit of the company. The uniform is made up of classic and modern garments, with slimline trousers, sneakers, redesigned sailor stripes and a sleeveless quilted jacket. The uniforms have been designed with recycled fabrics made from plastic bottles.
