French carrier Aigle Azur in receivership
Around 1150 jobs at risk
Today, on September 3, the French Civil Aviation Directorate General (DGAC) announced that the French carrier Aigle Azur has been placed in receivership after cash flow problems: a situation that puts at risk around 1150 jobs, according to the alarm launched in the previous days by the French trade union of cabin crew. While the air connections will continue to be under the carrier's control, an administrator decided by the Evry Court will have responsibility for its management.
Aigle Azur Transports Aériens is based in Tremblay-en-France and its main operating base is located at the Paris-Orly airport. Established in 1946 by Sylvain Floirat, it is one of the oldest private airline in France and it has a fleet of 11 aircraft, of which 2 are leased to the Portuguese TAP.
