You Can Fly to Paris and Barcelona for Less than $150 This Summer on This New Airline
Just in time for the summer travel season, Americans can fly to two of Europe's premiere tourist destinations for less than $150, thanks to a new budget airline.
Tickets are already available for the new routes from the East Coast to Paris and Barcelona on LEVEL, a low-cost and long-haul airline launched by the International Airlines Group – the parent company of British Airways, Aer Lingus, and Iberia.
Flights from Newark International Airport to Paris Orly start at $149 one-way. Flights back to the U.S. from Paris are even cheaper, starting at €99, or about $117. Flights from Montreal to Paris start at $199 one-way.
LEVEL is also launching a route from Boston to Barcelona starting at $149 one way. And flights from the Caribbean island's Guadeloupe and Martinique to Paris start at $117 one-way.
The airline is opening the trans-Atlantic routes after the success of its launch in Barcelona this past summer.
LEVEL runs similarly to budget carriers like WOW Air and Norwegian Air, with fees for amenities like seat assignments, in-flight food, and checked bags for economy passengers. These amenities are complimentary for premium economy fliers.
Passengers who fly with LEVEL will also be able to use their loyalty points toward other IAG carriers, including Aer Lingus, British Airways, Iberia, and Vueling.
Flights will operate on Airbus A330-200 aircraft with 293 economy seats and 21 premium economy seats. The airline will be replacing IAG’s French budget airline, OpenSkies, at the end of the summer.
