History of OpenSkies

 

- British Airways launched its premium subsidiary OpenSkies in June, 2008, transferring two of its Boeing 757s to allow a smooth start of operations.

- First flight connected New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport to Paris' Orly.

- In July, 2008, French airline L'Avion was acquired by British Airways, and transformed its two Boeing 757s into large "private jets," just as OpenSkies' other aircraft.

- Each aircraft features Business Beds and Business Seats cabins, allowing accommodation of 64 or 84 passengers, depending on the configuration.

- No fatal accidents involving OpenSkies aircraft have been recorded so far.
