OpenSkies is a transatlantic airline owned by British Airways (BA), and is headquartered in Rungis, Paris. The airline launched as a brand of BA European Limited in June 2008 but in April 2009 the name was transferred to Elysair (which had operated as L’Avion). The airline is a full-service carrier and offers three class service cabins on board its aircraft. It has a fleet of three Boeing 757-200, of which it owns two and leases the third from BA.
The airline currently operates between Paris-Orly Airport in France and both Newark Liberty International Airport and John F. Kennedy International Airport in the United States. Potential future routes for the airline include Dublin, Frankfurt, Madrid, Bruxelas, Roma, e Milão. The Amsterdam-JFK route was dropped in August 2009 due to weak customer demand. Em dezembro 2009, the airline announced a change of its New York operations: em janeiro 2010, all OpenSkies flights were shifted from JFK to Newark. The airline restored service from JFK to Orly on 31 Março de 2013. The routes that OpenSkies intends to fly are only possible because of the EU-US Open Skies Agreement, which permits any American or European airline to operate services to and from any European or American location. The availability of landing slots limits the impact of the agreement at certain airports, such as London Heathrow Airport. OpenSkies joined the Oneworld alliance as an affiliate member on 1 Dezembro de 2012, of which parent British Airways is a founding member. British Airways Executive Club members are able to claim tier points and BA miles on OpenSkies flights.
OpenSkies airline announced a codesharing agreement with American Airlines which will put American’s “AA” code on its flights between Paris and Newark.
