Air France confirms intention to close Joon
Airline studying ways to integrate low-cost project launched in 2017
Air France has confirmed it will close the low-cost airline Joon, as had been speculated for some time. Launched in 2017, the airline to offer a lower cost service to a younger audience, but Air France KLM’s new President Benjamin Smith already gave signs that would end the project.
“After much discussion with employees and customers alike, and in consultation with the unions, Air France has decided to launch a project studying the future of the Joon brand and the integration of Joon employees and aircraft into Air France. Joon… the brand was difficult to understand from the outset for customers, for employees, for markets and for investors, “the airline said in a statement.
The company, however, has not yet decided what will be done with Joon, but it is certain that its flights, airplanes and routes should be assumed by Air France itself. The airline has ensured that it will honor all of Joon’s commitments to its customers.
Joon flies to destinations in Europe and also Africa, South America and India.
