The IAG member airline will operate services each Monday, Wednesday and Friday, offering direct connectivity to the central Paris airport, ideal for short city breaks or business trips.

Flights will arrive into Birmingham from Paris Orly at 0715 and depart Birmingham at 0800 using a 220 seat A321 aircraft.

This is Vueling’s second destination from Birmingham, complementing its existing service to Barcelona which operates four times weekly.

Tom Screen Birmingham Airport’s Aviation Director said: “This is a great new route for Birmingham, operating into the heart of Paris with a successful airline that offers affordable prices and great service. We are incredibly pleased that Vueling, an IAG member, has committed to this new route, increasing capacity to Paris from Birmingham and adding to its existing Barcelona service. We look forward to a successful launch on the 3rd November and seeing Midlands’ leisure and business travellers enjoy this new three times weekly service.”

From the end of October, day 2 PCR arrival Covid tests will be replaced by more affordable Lateral Flow tests for double vaccinated travellers. From Monday 4th October, passengers no longer have to take a pre-departure test if they have been double jabbed and the current traffic light system will be replaced by a single red list for all travellers.
