Low-cost carrier Level Europe will reportedly cease operations as British Airways’ parent International Airlines Group tries to stem losses amidst the plummet in air travel during the coronavirus pandemic.

The move comes less than one month after Austrian low-cost carrier Level Europe, another IAG subsidiary, shut down and filed for insolvency.

Previously known as OpenSkies, the airline was founded in 2008 after British Airways purchased the then two-year-old French airline, L’Avion.  The airline served as the low-cost, long-haul subsidiary of IAG, operating flights with an all Airbus fleet of three A330 aircraft.

The airline is headquartered in Rungis, near Paris.   It had not responded to an e-mail from Frequent Business Traveler asking for comment and additional information at press time.
