La Compagnie, the exclusively business-class boutique airline offering two daily flights between New York and Paris, has partnered with Viasat Inc., a global communications company, to equip La Compagnie’s brand-new, all business-class Airbus A321neo aircraft with high-speed Wi-Fi capabilities. Deployment of the new in-flight Wi-Fi service is scheduled for April 2019—making unlimited in-flight connectivity available to all 76 passengers onboard.
La Compagnie’s exclusively business-class A321neo aircraft are scheduled to operate between New York and Paris from April 2019. They will also be equipped with 76 full flat seats for an even more comfortable business-class experience.
Three years after launching as an exclusively business-class boutique airline with trans-Atlantic routes on July 4 2014, and a year since doubling its daily flights between New York and Paris, La Compagnie is accelerating its development with an order of two Airbus A321neo aircrafts. This investment in the new Airbus aircraft marks a major milestone for the still-young boutique airline, revealing stable growth and progressive future development.
Due for delivery in 2019, the thoroughly modern, efficient and eco-friendly A321neos will take La Compagnie’s in-flight business-class experience to new heights with the latest technologies, Wi-Fi service and “full-flat” beds, ensuring passengers are well-connected and well-rested upon arrival in New York or Paris.
The choice of the French aeronautical firm Airbus, which is headquartered in Blagnac and has manufacturing facilities across Europe and around the world, strengthens La Compagnie’s “French-in-spirit” philosophy that has made the carrier so desirable for intercontinental passengers.
The two Airbus A321neos will be introduced to the La Compagnie fleet in 2019 with a full business-class configuration and the most attractive fares on the market.
