Paris Orly Airport

In response to customer feedback collected from a recent passenger survey, OpenSkies, the unique all-business airline, today announced that flights from Washington-Dulles to Paris-Orly will now operate a later departure time at 7:30 p.m. (ET). This change will take effect beginning October 31.

Previously, OpenSkies' five weekly direct flights from Washington to Paris departed at 5:45 p.m. (ET) and arrived in Paris at 7:40 a.m. (CET). The new departure time will arrive in Paris at 8:10 a.m. (CET).

Departure times for flights traveling west-bound from Paris-Orly to Dulles will continue operating on the current schedule. All five weekly flights depart at 12:00 p.m. (CET) and arrive at Washington-Dulles at 4:00 p.m. (ET).

OpenSkies is an all-business class airline operating transatlantic flights from New York and Washington, DC to Paris-Orly. Each aircraft features a unique 2x2 configuration in both cabins - Biz Seat and Biz Bed - giving passengers a choice of a window or aisle seat on every flight. Biz Seats are wide seats that recline 140 degrees with a 52" pitch, and Biz Bedseats convert to completely flat beds (180-degree recline). All seats across both cabins are equipped with universal power outlets and feature individual entertainment systems that contain more than 50 hours of programming.

On every flight, passengers get lounge access at the airport, plated dining service with wine and champagne and "Fast-Track" checkin.
