From BBC - November 28, 2017

British Airways' owner IAG is expanding its low-cost long-haul airline Level by basing two planes at Paris Orly airport and launching four new routes.

Level started in Barcelona in March to compete with other long-haul budget airlines such as Norwegian Air Shuttles and Wow Air.

Orly will be home to two Airbus A330-200 planes which will fly to Montreal, New York, Guadeloupe and Martinique.

IAG said it expected the airline to be profitable this year.
