International Airlines Group’s (IAG) low-cost, long-haul carrier Level will launch twice-weekly service between Paris Orly (France) and Las Vegas, Nevada, from Oct. 30, becoming the first airline to operate direct service between the two cities.

Level said it would increase the number of flights between Paris and Guadeloupe and Martinique up to a total of 13 flights a week to the Caribbean, thanks to the addition of a third aircraft based at Paris’s second airport. 

In the winter 2019 season, Level will operate a daily flight using an Airbus A330-200 with 314 seats to Pointe-à-Pitre and up to six flights a week to Fort-de-France, nearly doubling the number of flights to these destinations compared with summer 2019, the airline said. 

Level already operates flights from Orly to New York (Newark); Montreal; Fort-de-France, Martinique; and Pointe-à-Pitre, Guadeloupe. 

Level, which was set up in 2017, also operates from Barcelona to San Francisco, Buenos Aires, Boston and Santiago de Chile. The LCC plans to launch flights to New York JFK in July.
