The new low-cost airline belonging to Air France-KLM, began its flights between Paris and Cairo yesterday.
Last year the Air France-KLM group launched its low-cost airline, called Joon, aimed especially at Millennials passengers, that is, young people between 18 and 35 years old whose life revolves around digital technology.
Yesterday, the airline launched its first long-haul flight between the Paris-Charles de Gaulle International Airport (CDG) in France and the Cairo International Airport (CAI) in Egypt.
The new air route is operated with renewed Airbus A340 aircraft configured in three classes and will have daily flights. Joon also highlighted the comforts of such aircraft, such as its Business Class with convertible seats in a 2-meter long bed and 15.6-inch entertainment screens.
For its part, the Premium Economy Class has a recline of 133º in its seats and more space for the legs, while in the meals, the starters and desserts are inspired by those belonging to the Business Class.
Passengers traveling in Economy Class will have at their disposal individual touch screen and USB ports, as well as free and complete food.
Those who wish, by a payment, can choose seats or access gourmet drinks or snacks, the airline said.
Joon will be launching more long-haul routes from its base in Paris, to Cape Town (South Africa), from April 3, and Tehran (Iran), from April 5. In the month of May it will start flights to Fortaleza (Brazil) and Mahé (Seychelles), on days 4 and 5 respectively.
On June 18, the low cost airline will also fly to the city of Mumbai, in India.
Meanwhile, in the market of short-range flights, Joon plans to start flying to the European cities of Barcelona, Porto, Berlin and Lisbon.
