It is currently the second largest French airline after Air France and operates international scheduled and charter services to 15 destinations in the French overseas territories, Africa and North America. It is based at Orly Airport, París.
La línea aérea fue establecida en 1981 and started operations on 17 Mayo 1981 as Corse Air International. It was founded by the Corsican Rossi family; en 1990 it was acquired by Nouvelles Frontières, a French tour operator, and the name was changed to “Corsair”. Worldwide traffic rights were obtained in 1991. En 2000 TUI AG, one of the world’s leading tour operator groups, took over Nouvelles Frontières. The airline holds the record for most seats on a passenger aircraft (587 asientos, on its Boeing 747-400s). En 2008, the airline announced its intention to expand its medium-haul network to the Mediterranean and its long-haul network to Canada and the United States (where it regularly flew in the 1990s), including the establishment of codeshare agreements with Air Canada. The first destination in this expansion was Miami in June 2010, but the rest of the plan was later abandoned due to a change in the airline’s strategy. En 27 Mayo 2010, Corsairfly announced a plan called “Takeoff 2012”, aimed to modernise the airline. This plan includes a reduction of workforce by 25%, the replacement of 3 Boeing 747-400 por 2 Airbus A330-300 from TUI AG, the refurbishment of all aircraft cabins, leaving the charter flights market, and consolidation of routes (including dropping Kenya, República Dominicana, Québec City, Moncton and Israel). A partir de octubre 2010, the plan was pending union approval. En 22 Marzo 2012, the airline announced it would be changing its name to Corsair International and unveiled the new corporate image inline with the planned operational changes.
The Corsair International fleet consists of the following aircraft (at June 2013): Airbus A330-200, Airbus A330-300, Boeing 747-400.
