Orly-based long-haul low-cost carrier French bee has delivered some tempting transatlantic bargains for the coming October. For well under $300, one can enjoy the Parisian joie de vivre with return flights from Newark starting as low as $254!
French bee is a low-cost airline that operates a fleet of four Airbus A350s to the French overseas territories of Réunion and French Polynesia. Last year, it also set the world record for the longest domestic flight, on a service from the latter to its base at Paris Orly.
