Frenchbee, France’s leading low-cost, long-haul airline, is pleased to announce its new route between Paris-Orly 4 and Newark Liberty International. The first airline to have chosen the Airbus A350 XWB as the only aircraft for its entire fleet, Frenchbee will operate the daily flight beginning June 10th, 2020. Following the launch of a new route to San Francisco in May 2018, Frenchbee is continuing its development in North America and strengthening its position as a low-cost, long-haul air carrier targeting a large customer base of leisure travelers.

Marc Rochet, Chairman of Frenchbee, stated: “After a successful year in both San Francisco and airlines/flight-review-onboard-with-french-bee.html” target=”_self” rel=”nofollow noopener noreferrer”>French Polynesia, opening a second North American destination has solidified French bee’s position as a leading low-cost airline between France and the United States. New York and Paris welcome millions of French and American tourists every year. Our latest generation of aircraft will provide them with both comfort and travel quality at an affordable price.”

All flights will be operated at the following times (local time):

— Departure from Orly 4 at 2:00 p.m. – arrival in Newark at 4:15 p.m.

— Departure from Newark at 6:15 p.m. – arrival in Orly at 7:30 a.m. the next day

This new destination will be served by the new Airbus A350 XWB, which is scheduled for delivery in June 2020. Along with reducing CO² emissions by 25 percent as one of the most fuel-efficient aircraft on the market, Frenchbee’s A350 XWB is specifically designed for ensuring passenger comfort on long-haul flights with increased air exchange (every three minutes), unparalleled sound insulation (four times less noise than the Boeing 787 model) and 100-percent LED lighting, designed to facilitate easier rest and wake-up.

Sophie Hocquez, Sales Director of Frenchbee, explains: “With our A350s, passengers are only experiencing pressure equivalent to a stay at an altitude of 1,800 meters, creating a much more comfortable atmosphere. In addition, the ultra-spacious cabin and the inclination of the walls create more space. As a result, we have received excellent feedback from our customers who have said they experience less fatigue and are ready to enjoy their stay as soon as they step on the ground.”

Tickets for the new route will be available for booking from September 18, 2019, the date during which prices will also be announced.

Airlines Scaling Back On Some In-Flight Services Due to Coronavirus



A few airlines, including those already affected by the coronavirus outbreak, have begun scaling back on some in-flight services as a way to help fight the virus.

The Points Guy writes that Singapore Airlines – obviously based in Asia, where the coronavirus has been most dangerous after originating in China – recently sent its frequent fliers an email about such changes.

Singapore advised its customers that some in-flight amenities will be discontinued, such as hot towel service, after-takeoff drink service, removal of reading materials from seat-back pockets, and suspension of in-flight sales.

Henry Harteveldt, president of Atmosphere Research, said that Chinese and Taiwanese carriers have taken similar precautionary steps based on government guidance, including removing pillows and blankets on some flights.

“They’re changing their cabin service procedures, so the passengers will notice this,” Harteveldt told The Points Guy.

But Harteveldt also remained optimistic that passengers wouldn’t pitch a fit given the circumstances.

“Passengers will accept (the reduction in services) because they’re being done in the interest of health and wellness,” he said.

As the virus, now known as covid-19, continues to expand globally, it remains to be seen if other airlines – including those based in the U.S. who offer international travel – adopt the same practice.

The aviation industry is quite often a copycat business, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see some similar changes put into place.

“As adults, we have to be logical and rational when we experience these inconveniences,” Harteveldt told The Points Guy. “This isn’t cost-cutting, this isn’t random, this is in the best interest of public health.”
