Atlas Atlantique Airlines is a French regional airline headquartered in La Chevrolière.[1] The airline's base is Nantes Atlantique Airport with an office at Paris - Le Bourget Airport.


It was created in 1989 as Atlantique Air Assistance that operates charter flights, corporate aviation, Air ambulance, non-emergency medical transportation services and freight transport flights in France and Europe, mostly on behalf of other larger French companies. The company holds a Global Operating License, as well as an Air Transport certification (CTA N°F-O-002) granted by the French Civil aviation authority. The company is also ISO 9001-2000 certified.

In 2006, it created a subsidiary called "Atlantique Air Lines" to offer their customers bigger aircraft over 19 seats, with two Embraer EMB 120 Brasilia (30 passengers). In 2008 Atlantique Air Lines replaced one of its Brasilias with a larger ATR 42 (46 passengers). It is the last French airline to operate the small Brazilian prop aircraft. In December 2015 the company came back as Atlas Atlantique Airlines by operating charter flights between France and Algeria.
