Société Aigle Azur Transports Aériens is an airline with its head office in Tremblay-en-France, France. It operates domestic scheduled passenger services and international services to Algeria, Mali, Portugal, China and Senegal. It also operates charter, cargo and wet lease services. Its main base is Paris Orly Airport.
In 1946, the original Aigle Azur was established as one of the first wholly privately owned, independent airlines in post-war France. During the early 1950s, Aigle Azur began operating long-haul scheduled routes linking metropolitan France with Africa and the Asia-Pacific region. In 1970, the airline was re-constituted as a regional airline named Lucas Aviation. Lucas Aviation initially traded as Lucas Air Transport and operated regional scheduled services. The name subsequently changed once more to Lucas Aigle Azur. In 2001, Groupe GOFAST acquired Lucas Aigle Azur from its previous owners, and reinstated the original name, Aigle Azur. The new owner refocused the airline as a mainstream short- to medium-haul scheduled and charter carrier.
