La Compagnie, the French 100% Smart Business Class airline, launched its first New York-Nice flight for the 2022 season this Saturday 7 May. This flight, which departed from New York Newark on Friday evening, arrived at the Nice Côte d'Azur airport Saturday morning and left immediately again for New York.

La Compagnie will be operating three flights a week on this route on its new Airbus A321neo until 27 September 2022. On each flight, this aircraft will offer 76 sleeper seats (where the usual layout can have 230 seats), free unlimited Wi-Fi, and healthy seasonal food for a unique business class experience. In addition to its comfort, the A321neo is able to carry out long-haul flights with a reduced carbon footprint, as it uses 30% less fuel than previous aircraft.

To commemorate the first Americans arriving at the Côte d'Azur, La Compagnie has teamed up with its long-standing partners to offer each of the 50 passengers a half-bottle of Whispering Angel rosé, sun protection cosmetics from the Caudalie brand, and a Côte d'Azur Pass. Those from the Côte d’Azur heading for New York will receive the “New York in Stride” guidebook from nuinui.

Christian Vernet, President of La Compagnie, states: “This year, with the health restrictions being lifted in France and the United States, as well as the efforts all of our employees have put into development, we are already seeing a real enthusiasm for our route and for the exciting city of New York. People always want to travel, and our high-quality product on board a modern plane and the excellent value for money attract a lot of customers.

More modern and less emissive airplanes

The return of La Compagnie at the Aéroport Nice Côte d’Azur represents a great opportunity for the whole region, reinforcing how attractive it is for customers wanting top-of-the-line service. By offering a direct route to the powerful hub of Newark, La Compagnie, a French air operator, is contributing to the reinforcement of our international destination network and to the dynamic nature of our region. By operating these flights with some of the most modern and green planes around, La Compagnie is furthering our own efforts to reduce the environmental footprint of air transport,” commends Franck Goldnadel, Chairman of the Board of Aéroports de la Côte d’Azur.
