The inaugural French flight of International Airlines Group’s long-haul, low-cost airline brand Level arrived in Montreal from Paris last week with more than 300 passengers on board a new Airbus A330-200 aircraft.
Flights to Montreal will operate three times a week, with the launch followed the next day by a four-a-week service to Guadeloupe. Level this year is basing two new A330-200s at Orly, each with 21 Premium Economy Class seats and 293 in Economy Class. A third A330-200 will be added next year.
At Paris Orly airport, IAG chief executive Willie Walsh said: “We’re delighted to start flying from our second European city. Level is performing really well and ahead of our expectations in all markets. We will continue to invest in it and are committed to accelerating its growth.”
A further A330-200 is scheduled to start operations in Barcelona in September, with another one due to be added next year, totalling four aircraft in 2019.
Level currently operates from Barcelona’s El Prat Airport to Buenos Aires, San Francisco and Boston, with a summer service to Los Angeles. Level’s Paris flights are operated by IAG’s French airline OpenSkies, which has transitioned into Level.
