The French airline reinvents itself to avoid confusion in its expansion plan.
French Blue is an airline based in the Paris-Orly Airport (ORY) of France. It owns two aircraft, an Airbus A350-900 and an Airbus A330-300, and operates flights to tourist destinations such as the Dominican Republic and Reunion Island.
As part of its expansion process, the airline has decided to change its name to French Bee, and thus avoid confusion with the American JetBlue Airways.
In this way, French Bee will initiate a new route to San Francisco, United States, and Papeete, on the Island of Tahiti, French Polynesia.
The new route will depart from Paris-Orly, fly to the San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and then continue its journey to the Fa’a’ā International Airport (PPT).
The flights will be operated twice a week with the Airbus A350-900, and they start on May 11, 2018.
