OpenSkies (airline code EC) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of British Airways. It is based at Paris Orly airport.
The carrier was established in 2008 following a treaty between the European Union and the USA that meant any EU-based airline could fly from any EU state to the US, hence the airline's name. In July 2008 BA bought French airline L'Avion for £54 million, merging it with OpenSkies.
OpenSkies flies from Orly to New York JFK and Newark. It uses a small fleet of narrow-body Boeing 757 aircraft in a three-class layout. Passengers are eligible to receive BA Executive Club points.
Paris-New York is the carrier's only route, it having previously cancelled services to Amsterdam and Washington.
