STRATEGIC DEVELOPMENTS

On 28 November, IAG announced that its longhaul low cost airline brand LEVEL will launch flights from Paris Orly to Montreal*, New York, Guadeloupe and Martinique from July 2018. Two Airbus A330-200 aircraft will be based at Orly airport. LEVEL's Paris flights will be operated by staff who currently work for IAG's French airline OpenSkies which is based at the airport. The OpenSkies brand will cease to operate at the end of next summer and all its staff will operate LEVEL flights. LEVEL will also launch a new route from Barcelona to Boston on March 28, 2018 and will add a third A330-200 aircraft to its Barcelona fleet later in the summer.

 

On 17 November, Aer Lingus announced that it will start flights between Dublin and Seattle on 18 May 2018. This is the sixth new transatlantic route announced by the airline since IAG acquired it in August 2015, bringing its transatlantic route total to 15.
