Société Airlinair, simply known as Airlinair, was a French regional airline based in Rungis, France,[1] operating scheduled regional flights (some of which were on behalf of Air France), and aircraft lease services.[2] The airline has set up bases at Paris-Orly Airport and Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport. As an Air France regional partner, it also offered flights from Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport

Airlinair, along with Régional and Airlinair, was fully merged in HOP! since 2017 after a year of negotiation process.[3]

History[edit]

The airline was established in 1998 and started operations in May 1999. It was founded by four principal shareholders including Lionel Guérin and is owned by private investors (80.5%) and Brit Air (19.5%).[2]

Since 31 March 2013, all Airlinair flights have been operated under the name HOP!, Air France's regional brand.[4]

Airlinair ceased all flight operations in March 2017 after its merger in HOP!.[3][5]
