French airline Air Jet is adding several more scheduled routes. After a difficult start, the route from Paris to Saint-Etienne that it began in March is now breaking even, and Air Jet is optimistic that it will become profitable by the end of the year. As a result, Air Jet has decided to expand its scheduled services. Services from Bordeaux and Toulouse to Genève were added in late June, and from Paris to La Rochelle in July. The first two routes were formerly flown by Swissair, while the latter route, like Air Jet’s original Saint Etienne route, was abandoned by Air France as part of its restructuring. Air Jet is also examining other routes given up by the national carrier. The airline will be code-sharing with Swiss on services to Genève. Air Jet operates two BAe 146-200QCs and one 146-300. Another series 300 is expected to join the fleet.
