Operating bases

Air Horizons was an airline based in Paris, France. It operated charter flights for tour operators to the Mediterranean and Africa. Its main bases were Orly Airport, Paris, Charles de Gaulle International Airport, Paris and Le Bourget Airport, Paris.

History[edit]

The airline was founded as Euralair in October 1962 by Alexandre Couvelaire. In November 2003 Euralair had to file for bankruptcy protection. Euralair Horizon and Euralair International were saved from liquidation by a last-minute takeover offer from UK-based Angel Gate Aviation and in February 2004 Euralair was restarted as Air Horizons.

In November 2005, however, the airline filed for bankruptcy protection in a French court.

Air Horizons ceased operations in November 2005.

Services[edit]

Air Horizons launched weekly scheduled services from Montpellier to Casablanca and from Charles de Gaulle International Airport, Paris to Ouarzazate in October 2004.

Fleet[edit]

The former Air Horizons fleet was formed by Boeing 737-300, Boeing 737-400, Boeing 737-800 and Boeing 757-200. All these planes were returned to their lessor after the airline closed December 7, 2005
