Low-cost airline Level is expanding its operations to Orly Airport in Paris, where it has announced it will be launching four new long-haul routes.
The long-haul budget airline owned by British Airways' owner International Airlines Group (IAG) is due to launch in Paris in July 2018.
 
It will start by offering four flights to Montreal, New York, Guadeloupe's largest city Pointe-à-Pitre and the capital of the French Caribbean island of Martinique, Fort-de-France.
 
Starting from July 2nd, Level will serve Montreal, Fort-de-France and Pointe-à-Pitre three to four times a week, announced IAG boss Willie Walsh on Tuesday. 
 
And it will begin flying to New York-Newark from September 4th.
 
Passengers will be able to get a one-way ticket from Paris to New York and Paris to Montreal from the ultra-competitive prices of €129 and €99, respectively. 
 
That price includes all taxes but not meals on board or checked baggage. 
 
The move follows on from a successful opening for Level in Barcelona in June where it launched to compete with other long-haul budget airlines such as Norwegian Air Shuttles and Wow Air. 
 
But the news is unlikely to be welcomed by Air France bosses who have launched their own low-cost subsidiary, Joon due to begin its long-haul offering from summer 2018. 
 
Level is due to take over the 170 employees, the slots, the air transport certificate and the customers of Openskies, the British Airways subsidiary which specialises in flights to and from New York. 
 
Openskies will completely disappear in September 2018, making way for the Level brand.
