French bee took delivery of its first Airbus A350-1000

Today the french low-cost carrier French bee receives its first Airbus A350-1000. A newly built jet was delivered to the airline on a long-term lease from Air Lease Corporation. This is the first of two aircraft the company going to receive this year.

About French bee

French bee (member of Groupe Dubreuil Aero) is a french all-Airbus A350 ultra-low-cost airline that operates long-haul flights from Paris to three destinations in the United States (Newark, Los Angeles, and San-Francisco) and two French overseas territories and leisure destinations (Saint-Denis Reunion and Tahiti Papeete). Los Angeles is a new route for the airline. Also, the company resumes flights to Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic). Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Tahiti flights formerly operated via San Francisco were redirected through Canadian airports (Vancouver and Toronto) and sometimes via French territories in the Caribbean. The current fleet consists of four A350-900s and one brand-new A350-1000. Based at Orly airport.

French bee formerly bore the name French Blue and was rebranded due to objections from the JetBlue airline. In January 2018 the company informed that it was renamed "French Bee".

What a new jet offers

A new A350-1000 features 480 seats in a comfortable two-class layout with 40 premium class seats and 440 economy seats. It is furnished with an Airbus Airspace cabin, all the seats are equipped with the latest-generation in-flight entertainment system and onboard WI-FI connectivity.

Air Lease Corporation also delivered another A350-1000 to Air Caraїbes, a sister company of the Dubreuil group, but it is the third A350-1000 for the airline.
