Air Caraibes and French bee, both owned by France's Groupe Dubreuil, plan to add two new A350-900s on lease, on top of the two A350s they already operate.

The aircraft are on lease from Air Lease Corporation, with Air Caraibes taking delivery of one A350 in July 2018 and the other headed to sister carrier French Bee in June 2019.

French bee will also transfer one one A330-300, serial 1727, to Air Caraibes, who will remove two A330-300s, serials 965 and 1021, from its fleet. In December 2019, Air Caraibes will take delivery of its first A350-1000.

Additionally, one A330-200 will continue to act as a reserve aircraft.

Overall, the Group will therefore take delivery of three new A350s in 2019.
