After 70 for years, flights between Paris-Orly and St Denis became operational with Boeing 777-300ER aircraft equipped in 3 classes and with the capacity of 468 seats, carrying approximately 400 000 passengers per year. The frequency of flights to 11 per week also increased.

Air France is a key player in the Reunion economy, contributing to the economic development of the island. The company thus promotes the development of tourism, in particular due to the strong partnership with IRT (Reunion Island Tourism) and the code-share agreement with Air Austral.
