TUI AG to sell Corsair to Groupe Dubreuil, the owner of Air Caraibes

Corsair International (Paris-Orly), the French airline unit of TUI AG, will be sold to Groupe Dubreuil, the owner of Air Caraibes. Both carriers will be operated separately according to this report by Bloomberg.

According to Bloomberg, “Dubreuil, who sold French carrier Regional Airlines to Air France in 2000, said he plans to sign a lease deal for three A350s from an unspecified supplier, adding to six of the wide-body twinjets that are already due to arrive from 2016 through 2023 — three ordered outright for Air Caraibes and three to be leased from ILFC, now owned by AerCap Holdings NV.”
