Air Littoral buy to give work to Azzurra Air Avro RJs


Investment fund Seven Group, owner of Azzurra Air, has acquired the assets of bankrupt French regional airline Air Littoral. The Group hopes to combine the two airlines to “set up a top-ranking European regional airline to serve the Mediterranean region”, in the words of Mario Palmonella, Seven Group chairman. Seven Group will only retain Air Littoral’s CRJ fleet. The routes to Corsica previously flown by the French airline’s Fokker 70s will now be served using Azzurra’s Avro RJs, which were recently idled by the end of code-share agreement with Alitalia.
