BA puts on extra Paris flights

British Airways is to start extra flights between London and Paris, it was announced today.

On January 10 2011 BA will begin 12 services a week between Heathrow and Orly airport in Paris.

The new flights will complement BA's Heathrow services to Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris.

BA network planning general manager Colm Lacy said: "This is an excellent addition to our short-haul network, allowing business travellers easy access to the Paris financial district which is close to Orly airport."

BA will operate Airbus A319s, A320s and A321s on the new route.

Meanwhile, regional airline Air Southwest is launching a daily service between Newquay and Cardiff on January 4 next year.

Prices start at £39 one way, including all taxes.
