Today, the Air France-KLM Group announced the new airline focused on the Millennials that will fly in autumn.
In response to the growth of low cost carriers as Level, Norwegian, or to the major airlines of the Persian Gulf, the Air France-KLM Group has launched JOON, project previously known as Boost.
The creators of the airline ensure that it will not be a low-cost, but is intended to reduce costs and compete with other low cost carriers such as Norwegian or the new airline Level, of IAG Group.
The main travelers in which the airline focuses are the Millennials, young, active and digitals, between 18 and 35 years.
In JOON will work Air France pilots volunteers, without any change in their conditions of work or remuneration, while the flight attendants will be hired externally, at a cost 45% less of Air France.
JOON will possess a single base, located at the Paris-Charles de Gaulle International Airport (CDG), and will begin to operate in the European autumn of 2017 with medium-haul flights from Paris. From the summer of 2018 it will launch long-haul flights.
The fleet will be limited to 18 aircraft for middle distances and 10 for the long-haul flights, and in the month of September will be announced destinations and rates.
