The Airlinair flights to and from Paris–Orly airport have been transferred to this new airport.[3] Cityjet, part of Air France–KLM, operated a seasonal route to London City Airport from June 25 to September 13, 2010.[4] Due to good results, the service was extended until October 31, 2010. As of February 2012, the route operated twice a week in the winter.
