air France & Mediterranean sea
Air France is the French flag carrier. It was formed in October 1933 from the merger of several small French airlines (Aéropostale, Air Orient, Air Union among others). At that time, the network was quite extensive across Europe, to French colonies in North Africa, which explains the strong commercial position of Air France in the Mediterranean Sea (during the WW2, Air France moved its operations to Casablanca, Morocco).
