British Airways has confirmed it will cease flights between London City airport and Paris Orly from the end of May.
In an email to Business Traveller a spokesperson said:
“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, which includes the new Munich route launched this week, but at the same time ensure we deliver a stable, punctual and reliable schedule for our customers.
“British Airways is still the largest airline at London City Airport where we remain fully committed operating to 33 destinations this summer. With the addition of our new aircraft we have 10 per cent more seats on sale this year compared to last summer.
“Customers booked on Orly flights after June 1 will be offered alternative flights or refunds.”
The route currently operate up to three times daily, and the suspension leaves London City without a nonstop connection to the French capital.
It also means that Paris Orly will no longer have a year-round service to any UK airport – Transavia France operates a seasonal route between Orly and Edinburgh.
