In the following years, the airline not only increased its fleet, but also its flight plan. As of 1996, long-haul flights were also on the airline's flight plan.

The home base of the fleet is Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. From here, the airline serves 53 destinations in Europe, America, Africa and Asia. These are primarily charter flights in holiday regions.
XL Airways France is a young airline with a modern fleet. The charter airline offers cheap flights. But for customers, that does not mean that the issue of security is saved. On the contrary, because in order to be allowed to fly internationally, the airline must strictly comply with established regulations. If this is not done, the airline must expect to be unable to land in one country. Service and safety are also important at XL Airways France. This allows customers to buy snacks and drinks during the flight.
The fleet of XL Airways France currently comprises seven Boeing and Airbus aircraft. The average age of the aircraft is 7.9 years. The airline wants to increase its fleet in the next few years to offer its customers even better options. Thus, other destinations could be included.
