Air Bourbon, based at St Denis on Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean, was created in November 2002. The airline's first aircraft, an Airbus A340-200, also happens to have been Air Tahiti Nui's first aircraft which was featured in the World Air Routes previously, operates on routes from St Denis to Europe. The airline is known for its superior quality of service.
The program takes you in the cockpit for a roundtrip flight from Paris Orly Airport to Reunion Island. Our Captain, also an instructor for the company, will explain all the steps the crew needs to go through before and during the flight as well as presenting the cockpit of the A340 in detail with some remarks for flight simulator users. We also visit the cabin for a look at the airline's inflight service.
