History

The airline's roots can be traced to the "Companie Générale Aéropostale" in 1927 that pioneered mail delivery between Europe, Africa and South America with famous pilots like Jean Mermoz and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. It was originally part of Air France from 1947 to 1991 when it operated as Société d'Exploitation Aéropostale (SEA). It took on the current name in 2000 when it started services on its own for the French national postal service (La Poste). On March 14, 2008 Air Contractors of Ireland officially acquired the airline. The aircraft keep the former livery and call sign. It had 400 employees as of March 2007[1]. In May 2009 Europe Airpost opened a new main base in Tangier. From 30 March all Flights from and to Tangier will be operate by XL Airways France!
