On March 16, Air Corsica and Air France will appear in court in Bastia to defend the new procedures for obtaining the resident air fare, at the request of the mayors of Ajaccio and Borgo.
The legal battle over the accreditation system to benefit from the resident rate begins. On March 16, the airlines, Air Corsica and Air France will be summoned before the court of Bastia after a request from the mayors of Ajaccio, Laurent Marcangeli, and Borgo, Anne-Marie Natali.
Launched on February 26, the procedure aims in particular “the obligation imposed on the users of the companies […] to send their crossed-out tax notice. This constitutes a violation, among other things, of the right to the protection of personal data.“Procedure for which the mayor of Ajaccio obtained the support of his municipal council on February 22.
Three complaints filed with the CNIL
For complainants, the practice may go against “the right of everyone to have their personal data protected“. Also the two city councilors lodged three complaints with the Cnil (national commission for data processing and freedoms), responsible for ensuring the protection of personal data contained in files and computer or paper processing.

In fact, to be able to claim a resident rate, it is essential to download a tax notice, the tax number of which remains visible.
For now, according to the summons, “the control of the information transmitted will be carried out by the company. However, they remain silent on the conditions of control.“Always according to the summons,”other means less intrusive to the protection of personal data exist “and” the companies Air Corsica and Air France could be satisfied with the verification of the address on an identity document.“
“We reserve the right to attack”
For the president of the management board of the regional company, Luc Bereni, this assignment is only a “new episode“. “Our lawyers and those of Air France are not very worried at the first reading of the parts that are in their possession. We are very confident in this regard, but we can only see here a desire to destroy Air Corsica, the presence of Air France in Corsica, and the public service. This is how Air Corsica’s 700 employees feel today“, he specifies.
Luc Bereni warns: “If we see it, as we can already feel, an attack on our interests in our brand image, we also reserve the right to attack in our turn and to seek compensation for any damage that we may suffer.“
As a reminder, since March 1, all travelers must generate an accreditation number to book a plane ticket at the resident rate. This number is created by downloading, in particular, its tax notice on the online platform set up by Air Corsica and Air France.
