XL Airways France's 'number one priority' to launch two new Chinese routes by 2020: President

15 January, 2019

XL Airways France president Laurent Magnin said the carrier's "number one priority" is to open two new Chinese destinations outside of Jinan by 2020 (tourmag.com, 10-Jan-2019). As previously reported by CAPA, XL launched Paris CDG-Jinan service with A330-200 aircraft on 16-Jul-2018. "The goal is to go further and make China our ultra priority, where each city is at least the same size as Paris", Mr Magnin said. He also noted plans to double Jinan frequency to twice weekly out to 2020 with new A330-900neo aircraft ordered by the airline.
