The Air France medium-haul fleet sports the SkyTeam colours
Tuesday 17, May 2011
Over the last few days, an Air France A320 sporting the SkyTeam alliance colours has been flying the airline’s medium-haul network.
As a founding member of the alliance, Air France already had a Boeing 777-300 painted in the SkyTeam livery in its fleet. This aircraft evokes Air France’s commitment to the alliance’s ambition of providing customers with the best possible service.
SkyTeam encompasses 13 member airlines and offers access to a global network of over 12,500 daily flights to 898 destinations in 169 countries. Alliance member airlines offer their customers access to over 420 lounges worldwide and carry 385 million passengers per year.
The alliance is constantly expanding and will shortly welcome two new airlines from Greater China: China Eastern (China) and China Airlines (Taiwan). In addition to this unparalleled presence on one of the fastest-developing air transport markets, Saudi Arabian Airlines (Saudi Arabia), Middle East Airlines (Lebanon), Aerolineas Argentinas (Argentina) and Garuda (Indonesia) will be officially joining SkyTeam in 2012.
