L’Avion (Paris-Orly) yesterday (April 4) was officially merged into OpenSkies (London) (British Airways) even though F-HAVN still remains to be painted in OpenSkies colors. The division flies from Orly to both JFK and Newark in the New York area.

L’Avion (Elysair dba) (OpenSkies) (subsidiary of British Airways) (Paris-Orly) is slowly slipping into the sunset. One example is the repainting of its Boeing 757-26D F-HAVI (msn 24473).  After repainting at London (Heathrow), F-HAVI ferried back to Paris (Orly) on March 19. The airliner is now painted in full OpenSkies colors with a few subtle differences besides the French registration.
