Gatwick Airport may be the new home for French all-business class airline

The potential new airline wanting slots at Gatwick pleases the Easirent Car Hire Gatwick Airport staff as the airline is offering more affordable luxury comfort and it could result in new business car hire customers. 

An all-business class French airline is believed to be seeking flights to fly from Gatwick Airport. The airline La Compagnie is seeking runway slots for transatlantic flights.

The carrier started all-business class flights from Paris Charles de Gaulle to Newark in July using a single Boeing 757-200 six times a week. The aircraft is configured with 74 seats which recline to almost lie-flat position. Fares start at around $1,800 return, undercutting established premium services by more than half.

Deputy CEO Peter Luethi said “The proposition we have now is not to be the best business class, but the best in price point. That obviously is very attractive to independent business travellers that don’t have the benefit of a large corporation’s discounts. It’s this kind of customer we try to attract comfort at a reasonable price.”
