Air France to increase LCY-Paris Orly frequency

22 Oct 2008 by Mark Caswell

Air France is to
add a sixth daily weekday flight to its London City-Paris Orly route, starting
November 24.

The new flight will
depart LCY at 0940 Monday-Friday, arriving into Paris at 1205, with the return
leg leaving the French capital at 1805 and landing back in London at 1830. The move may well have been prompted by continued disruption to Eurostar services, caused by the tunnel fire on September 11. The rail firm is currently running at 93 per cent capacity, and this is likely to remain the case for several months until full access is restored to both tunnels.

Air
France operates the route with its City Jet subsidiary, using Avro RJ85
aircraft. The full schedule will now be as follows:

Flight Number           LCY                ORY

AF5019                       0800                1025
AF5021                       0940                1205
AF5129                       1200                1420
AF5025                       1550                1810
AF5027                       1830                2055
AF5029                       1940                2205

Flight Number           ORY                LCY

AF5018                       0720                0730
AF5020                       0835                0900
AF5128                       1110                1130
AF5024                       1500                1520
AF5022                       1805                1830
AF5028                       1855                1915

Moving an extra
aircraft on to this route means Air France will reduce its LCY-Nice route from
a daily service to two flights per week for the winter period. The flights will
depart LCY at 0715 on Saturdays, and 1255 on Sundays.
