Chalair Aviation, previously Chalair, is an airline with its head office on the grounds of Caen – Carpiquet Airport in Carpiquet, France.[1] It provides scheduled services with the A5 Airlinair code under a franchise agreement, using Beechcraft turboprops, as well as corporate shuttle services, freight (including toxic and corrosive material), business and sanitary flights, pilot certification and training, aircraft management and engineering, noticeably in La Réunion and neighboring islands (such as a rather epic landing on a beach in Tromelin Island, as can be seen from the company's website), and JAR Part 145 maintenance services. Its base is Caen. The airline now employs a total 42 persons, among them 27 are pilots, and plans to fly 35,000 scheduled passengers in 2007.

Starting 1997, besides business and freight flights, Chalair Aviation began operating a Fairchild Swearingen Metroliner for scheduled flights between Le Mans and Eindhoven and an ATR 42 between Cherbourg and Orly, with their own IATA code, M6, abandoned since — but a new designator is expected soon.

Chalair Aviation plans to open new routes in 2007 - 2008.



Chalair operates services to the following scheduled domestic destinations (as of April 2010):

From Bordeaux: Rennes — five flights per week (weekdays)
From Bordeaux: Brest — five flights per week (weekdays)
From Rennes: Clermont-Ferrand
From Rennes: Mulhouse — nine flights per week (weekdays and Sunday evening)
From Clermont-Ferrand: Lille
From Clermont-Ferrand: Marseille
From Clermont-Ferrand: Strasbourg
From Clermont-Ferrand: Toulouse
From Caen: Paris-Orly Airport for Airlinair


The Chalair fleet consists of the following aircraft (at July 2007)

The airline's medium term target is to expand the fleet with 20-seater plus turboprops.

Between 1997 and 2004, Chalair Aviation operated one Fairchild Swearingen Metroliner, one ATR 42 and three Cessna Citation II, then CJ2 jets.
