Airlinair rebranded to HOP!

Airlinair rebranded to HOP!. As of March 2013, all of Airlinair's flights have been operated under the name of HOP!


Airlinair was a French regional airline headquartered in Rungis, France. The airline operated scheduled regional flights (some which were on behalf of Air France) as well as aircraft lease services. Airlinair had operating bases at Paris-Orly Airport and Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport.

Airlinair was founded in 1998 and began its operation in May 199. The airline was founded by four principal shareholders: Lionel Guérin (80.5%) and Brit Air (19.5%).

Airlinair ceased all of its operation in March 2017 after its merger in HOP!.
