La Compagnie suspends London to New York route

Boutique business class airline La Compagnie has announced it will be suspending its flights between London and New York, as a result of the Brexit vote and a change in the European economic climate.

The airline, which launched the service in April last year, will instead start operating a second flight from Paris to New York in October 2016. Despite positive feedback from customers, the decision was taken by CEO Frank Yvelin in order to ensure the carrier can focus on development.

According to the company, the outcome of the EU referendum has increased uncertainty in the airline industry, leading to the suspension.

After expressing his thanks to customers, Yvelin added: "We would like to emphasis that this is a suspension of, not cancellation of, the London to New York route."
