The low-cost company of the Dubreuil group will launch a direct Orly-Los Angeles line from April 30 and will complete its American network at the end of the year with a new connection to Miami.
Within the air division of the Dubreuil group, the “little” French bee is taking up more and more space alongside its big sister, Air Caraïbes. The company is boosting its American service this year by opening a new Orly-Los Angeles link from April 30. From December 2022, French bee will set off for Miami.
6 Airbus A350 in December
The Los Angeles line will operate up to 6 flights per week (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday) by Airbus A350-1000, to the Tom Bradley International terminal. For the occasion, the company will offer an introductory price from 249 euros including tax one way. French bee will operate from December three frequencies per week to Florida, taking advantage of the delivery of its second Airbus A350-1000. This winter, French bee will therefore have an all-A350 fleet of six aircraft (4 Airbus A350-900s and 2 Airbus A350-1000s). With Los Angeles and Miami, French bee will therefore offer four major American destinations in its network: San Francisco (three flights per week), with an extension to Papeete, New York (seven flights per week), Los Angeles and Miami. It should also be remembered that French bee has an interline agreement with Alaska Airlines which gives it access to more than 100 domestic American destinations. French bee is currently marketed in the United States by three people based in Florida, plus a reservation center, but plans to strengthen its teams as part of the development of its American network.
Four major American destinations
In the summer of 2022, French bee will therefore serve Réunion (10 flights per week), New York (7 flights per week), San Francisco (3 flights per week), Los Angeles (6 to 7 flights per week) and Papeete ( 3 flights per week). Even if the company is concerned about the rise in oil prices which should lead to an increase in air fares, French bee is already very well oriented for the summer of 2022. “Depending on the destinations, we are on booking levels which are income to those of 2019, or even beyond. There is a real recovery in demand, driven by affinity and leisure customers”, explains Marc Rochet, president of French bee.
