International Airlines Group’s startup low-cost carrier is expanding again to the Caribbean.
Earlier this month, LEVEL launched new flights from Paris Orly to Guadeloupe, while next month the carrier will be launching new flights from Paris Orly to Martinique.
The flights will operate on Airbus A330-200 aircraft with 293 economy and 21 premium economy seats.
LEVEL said it would be basing two such aircraft at Orly.
The company also announced that it has tapped Vincent Hodder as the new CEO; he comes to the carrier after having served most recently as chief strategy officer at UK regional airline Flybe.
LEVEL, which first launched in June 2017, operates low-cost international flights that include several routes to the Caribbean.
“LEVEL is a start-up that is already performing really well. It’s more than just a start-up airline brand, it’s a new concept that uses technology to provide customers with control over the way they travel and has the lowest possible costs,” Hodder said.
LEVEL also flies to Punta Cana.
