French blue has launched its first commercial flight of its first A350 XWB between Paris-Orly and La Réunion Island.

This event marks a major step in the development of this Long Haul Low Cost airline.

Marc Rochet, CEO of French blue, says: "This first flight with an A350 XWB is a step forward for the airline and its employees. This first commercial flight illustrates a new stage in its ambitious development plan carried out by all its teams and the willingness of the Dubreuil Group to make French blue grow. In less than 2 years, we have built an innovative and modern airline with new and high-performance aircraft, to meet the new demands of customers. With the arrival of our second A350-900 in 2018, French blue will have an efficient and appropriate fleet as part of its project on the Paris / La Réunion, which is to boost the traffic, thanks to a new offer of quality travel and an aggressive pricing policy ".

Designed specifically for long-haul flights and particularly adapted to the Paris / La Réunion Island route, the A350 XWB is today the most modern Airbus with a high-performance in its segment among new technology airplanes.
