New Icelandair service to Paris Orly
Yesterday saw the first scheduled flight by flag carrier Icelandair to Paris Orly airport – an addition which brings the airline’s European network up to 27 destinations.
The airline has been flying to Paris for forty years, initially to Orly and then to the new Paris-Charles de Gaulle (CDG) airport, which opened in the 1970s.
“Orly is a much sought-after airport with a long waiting list of airlines wanting slots,” says Icelandair CEO Birkir Hólm Guðnason.
“It has very good connections within France and to neighbouring countries in southern Europe. Orly opens up exciting opportunities for Icelandair and is a welcome addition to our network.”
Icelandair will be operating 23 flights a week to Paris this summer – seventeen to CDG (2-3 a day) and six to Orly. CDG is also served by Icelandic low-cost airline WOW air.
