Aigle Azur names former L’Avion chief as CEO
French leisure airline Aigle Azur has appointed Frantz Yvelin as president and CEO, the executive who founded all-business airline L’Avion that was ultimately sold to British Airways (BA).

L’Avion was acquired by BA in 2008 for £54 million ($69.5 million) and renamed as OpenSkies. Yvelin stayed on as director of strategy and development for the BA-owned airline.
In 2013, after three years in consultancy, Yvelin’s company Dreamjet Participations created another premium carrier, La Compagnie. Dreamjet Participations acquired 100% of XL Airways France in 2016. Yvelin was La Compagnie
