British Airways drops Paris

Flights between London City Airport and Paris Orly operated by BA CityFlyer are to stop from the end of May. The airline said in a statement: “We have made some changes to our network for summer 2019 for operational and commercial reasons.

“This includes the suspension of the London City – Orly service which has not proved commercially viable. Our priority this year is to continue our growth.”

The statement said this growth included the new three-times-daily London City – Munich route announced earlier this year (BTN 25 February), noting: “British Airways is still the largest airline at London City Airport, where we remain fully committed operating to 33 destinations this summer.”

BA said customers booked after 1 June on Orly flights, which the airline has been operating up to three times a day, will be offered alternative arrangements or refunds.

The BA move leaves London City Airport without a nonstop connection to Paris and means Orly will no longer have a year-round service to any UK airport. Edinburgh has a seasonal connection operated by Transavia France.

• On another front, Air France has reduced its daily frequency between Heathrow and Paris CDG by one service from 31 March.
