All business airline now connects to more cities in France


Passengers Who Book Travel by April 30, 2011 Receive Free Roundtrip Train Connection!

OpenSkies, the unique all business airline, and SNCF-French National Railway announce the expansion of their partnership “tgvair,” which conveniently and seamlessly connects roundtrip travelers from New York and Washington, D.C. to 14 major French cities via Paris-Orly Airport. The tgvair partnership enables OpenSkies passengers to purchase roundtrip plane and train tickets simultaneously and benefit from an exceptional travel experience – from their city of departure in the U.S. to their final destination in France. Previously connecting OpenSkies passengers to Lyon and Nantes, tgvair now truly opens up France to U.S. travelers by adding 12 new stops.

To celebrate the launch of the tgvair expansion, customers will receive a free roundtrip train connection service when purchasing any roundtrip flight via OpenSkies by April 30, 2011, for travel from March 31-June 15, 2011.  This offer is valid for any OpenSkies booking in any fare class in both Biz Seat and Biz Bed cabins.

Upon arriving at Paris-Orly Airport – following a comfortable, amenity-filled flying experience via OpenSkies – passengers now have access to complimentary shuttle service to and from the Massy Train Station, where they will enjoy first-class, high-speed rail service to and from the following key destinations throughout France:Angers, Bordeaux, Le Mans, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Metz/Nancy, Nantes, Poitiers, Reims, Rennes, Strasbourg, Tours and Valence.

For the passengers of OpenSkies, the expanded tgvair partnership offers a variety of benefits, such as:

  • Added convenience: Passengers will no longer need to buy their plane and train tickets separately. OpenSkies will act as the one point of contact in case modifications to the clients’ trips are required.
  • Travel with peace of mind: This “flight + train” offer assures that passengers have an optimum travel experience inclusive of transfers between the Paris-Orly Airport and Massy TGV train station thanks to a dedicated shuttle service.
  • More savings: By purchasing plane and train tickets simultaneously through OpenSkies, travelers benefit from the competitive tariffs allowing them to enjoy more savings.
  • More security and guarantees: If there is a flight or TGV train delay, OpenSkies and SNCF will collaborate to reserve a seat for the passenger in the next available flight/train and will also offer one night’s hotel stay if necessary.
