Un instant, nous traitons votre demande...
Since May 2013, our fleet includes:
- 3 Boeing B747-400
- 2 reconfigured Airbus A330-200
- 2 new Airbus A330-300
With the continuous optimisation of its technical, economic and ecological performance measures, our fleet enables us to ensure the best comfort and safety for our passengers, combined with a roster of regular flights at the most affordable prices.
The cabins have been reconfigured and “dedensified”, offering more space and new seats. The total number of seats has gone from 323 to 304 on the A330-200, and from 582 to 533 on the B747-400. We are now the second largest French fleet in terms of the number of seats available.
The Premium area is even bigger, with 8 additional seats on the Airbus and 12 on the Boeing. For maximum comfort, the incline of the seats goes to 126°, with a spacing of 117 cm at the floor level. They are equipped with individual screens whose sound and viewing quality has been optimised, as well as with noise-cancelling headphones.
In Economy Class, the next-generation seats benefit from the latest technical advances and increased seating comfort. Their backrest is equipped with individual touchscreens that offer a wide variety of entertainment, including movies, children's programmes, games, a music channel, etc.
In the cabin, a lighting system, the mood lighting, ensures a lighting environment that is harmonious and soothing. It allows for lighting ambiances to be simulated depending on the stage of the flight, such as dawn or dusk.
Comfort, safety and time savings are our priorities in order to make your trip a special one.
Our technical maintenance department
Corsair has its own technical department. It is responsible for the line maintenance of the airline’s aircraft at its main base in Orly and at the bases in Fort-de-France, Pointe-à-Pitre and Saint-Denis de la Réunion.
The Corsair technical division includes:
- All activities relating to production, logistics, purchasing, engineering, planning and quality for ensuring the maintenance and monitoring of the aircraft in the very best of safety conditions.
- The operating budget for the maintenance of the aircraft was approximately 50 million euro in 2012.
Since 1994, the Corsair technical division has had JAR 145 certification, which guarantees the operation of airplanes under optimal safety conditions.
Heavy maintenance visits are entrusted to organisations approved for such operations, which meet the highest quality and safety standards: Air France, Cargolux, SASCO, etc.
A technical expert body is present in Orly 24/7 in order to coordinate maintenance operations on the aircraft, in Orly and in the foreign stopovers. This body follows all the behaviours of the next-generation aircraft (Airbus A330) in real time, including embedded systems that continuously communicate with Orly via satellite link.
Whereas it is provided for the aircraft, safety can also be found on the ground and on board; prevention and control mechanisms are in place to protect you.
On the ground
Your ID You may be asked of you repeatedly, and your baggage can be inspected. It is forbidden to carry any sharp object that can be used as a weapon in your hand luggage or in the cabin; it will be confiscated at the baggage controls. To properly prepare for the controls, read all the information on baggage permitted in the cabin.
At the entrance to the airplane, the cabin crew checks the boarding pass of each passenger and then counts the passengers on board at the end of boarding. They ensure that the expected number of passengers is identical to the number of travellers in the cabin.
In May 2008, Corsair obtained IOSA accreditation, with the label issued by IATA, the International Air Transport Association. This attests to the airline’s adherence to a recognised quality system, and to its commitment in relation to all safety matters.
The IOSA assessment programme is based on the systematic review of nearly 1,000 points that combine international standards with the best practices of airlines.
This certification is incumbent upon the member airlines of IATA. With this label, Corsair states and confirms its strict compliance with international safety rules, particularly in terms of organisation, maintenance and flight operations.
Over 40 million passengers have already trust us, why not you?
