Francophile aviation fans beware, Air France updated its very clever and highly informative website Air France La Saga microsite back in December last year, and this month saw the introduction of their latest story on the carrier’s iconic 747 aircraft that left the fleet in January.
The site is dedicated to Air France’s heritage and tells the story of the company and its major milestones throughout the years. There are some fantastic archive photos on the site, from Concorde, to uniforms and cabin interiors from the 30s and 40s.
The articles were all rewritten back in December, and are packed with accurate and interesting facts and figures on one of the longest running airlines in the world. The site has also now had two major categories added to it, called fleet and network, which showcase how the carrier’s jet set era helped expand the carrier’s reach around the world, and cutting flight times between Paris and Mexico City from 22hours down to 14 hours 20 minutes with the advent of the beautiful Boeing 707 aircraft.
The site isn’t all old news. The site also includes new articles and topics related to Air France mirroring the highlights found on the carrier’s social networks.
We’ve spent literally hours trawling through the site, it’s archive photography, uniforms, aircraft interiors and fascinating facts, and we believe you may well do the same. It’s got us screaming “bring back the JetSet era.”
