In 2015, the airline carried more than 46 000 000 passengers to 168 destinations in 93 countries. The airline was formed in October of 1933 and was France’s national carrier for 70 years before its merger with KLM in 2003.
The current Air France livery consists of a white scheme with the blue Air France title and design. This current design has been used since the late 70’s with only slight changes being introduced throughout the 2000’s.
