Faid's latest flight from prison came after two or three heavily armed men hijacked a helicopter and forced the pilot to fly to Faid's prison in Seine-et-Marne, near Paris, the French Interior Ministry said.
The ministry said an armed commando landed in a helicopter in the courtyard as the prisoner was in the visiting room of the prison.
Investigators are looking into whether Faid, who had been at the Reau prison since November, had inside help.
Faid briefly took four guards hostage with a pistol before escaping in a getaway vehicle but was recaptured six weeks later at a hotel on the outskirts of Paris. He said he didn't know who Faid was, even though he is a notorious figure in France who has also written a book on his life of crime. Faid and his accomplices are believed to have ditched the airplane and escaped by vehicle.
The crime took place when Faid's brother was visiting him.
Faid escaped on board a helicopter that landed in the prison's front courtyard, an area to which detainees reportedly have no access.
A police manhunt has since been launched across the entire Paris region.
He was later released with no physical injuries.
