The private French airline Aigle Azur was founded back in 1946, in Tremblay - de-France, near Paris. Even in the 1950s, the airline operated a combination of destinations in France with French-speaking, African and Asia-Pacific destinations. In the 1970s, the airline again reconstructed itself and under the name Lucas Aviation offered only regional flights. Years later, the airline was again renamed Lucas Aigle Azur, until finally, in May 2001, the French logistics company Gofast took over the airline and gave it its old name. Since then, Aigle Azur has again been operating international flights, at present concentrating on the former French colonies in North Africa and Portugal.
From its base at Paris-Orly Airport and other major French airports like Lyon, Mulhouse, Marseille and Toulouse, Aigle Azur primarily transports passengers to destinations in Morocco and Algeria, flying for example to Annaba, Alger, Batna, Casablanca, Constantine, Oran, Oujda, Setif and Tangier. There is also a connection from Paris to Porto and Lisbon.
