HC Deb 18 December 1973 vol 866 cc303-4W
Mr. Tebbit

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what arrangements he has made for British airlines to use the new Charles de Gaulle Airport for services between London and Paris when it is commissioned in 1974.

Mr. Onslow

I am happy to say that both British Airways European Division and British Caledonian Airways will transfer services to the new Charles de Gaulle Airport at Paris when it comes into operation in March 1974. British Caledonian will transfer all its services presently operating into le Bourget and British Airways will, with its partners Air France, move a proportion of its existing services from Orly. I would like to express my thanks to the French authorities for enabling both the British scheduled airlines to take part in this new venture.
