New Airline ‘La Compagnie’ Launches Exclusively Business-Class Service
The inaugural flight will take off from Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport (CDG) on July 11 to Newark International Airport (EWR).
Founder Frantz Yvelin announces the launch of an exclusively business-class airline, La Compagnie. Offering regularly scheduled service between Paris and New York City. “It is time to bring business-class air service back to where it belongs where personalized service is offered at respectable fares,” said Franz Yvelin.
The interior design offers 74 “lie-flat” seats creating a 2×2 configuration throughout a single aisle cabin with no dividing class curtain. Overhead luggage bins are amply sized. The interior cabin is sleek and stylized with leather headrests and armrests in La Compagnie’s signature baby blue. Additional interior tones are muted: from the wood grain of wallboards to the blue-speckled grey carpeting.
La Compagnie’s next Boeing 757-200 aircraft will be delivered in December 2014. The B 757-200 is the best plane adapted for La Compagnie’s cross-Atlantic route: it has a range of 3,900 nautical miles and modern winglets to cut fuel consumption.
