New routes from Edinburgh and Luton to Paris Orly have been started by Air France-KLM Group low-cost carrier Transavia.
The airline is offering 140,000 seats for the summer with sales for the winter opening yesterday.
The new flights from the UK using 189-seat Boeing 737-800s come a year after the carrier began flying between Dublin and Paris.
The Luton service is running twice a day on weekdays with daily flights on Saturdays and Sundays. Four flights a week are operating from Edinburgh.
Fares on both routes lead in at £31 one-way including taxes.
Transavia is embarking on a strategy to attract business travellers by offering connections via Orly, the busiest French domestic airport.
Chief commercial officer, Hervé Kozar, said: "2016 is a year of strong growth for Transavia. The opening of these two new destinations is part of our strategy to expand our development in northern Europe.
“Our first flights London Luton-Paris Orly and Edinburgh-Paris Orly, aim at offering city breakers the enchantments of discovering Paris and business travellers an attractive fares with a valuable service.”
Edinburgh airport chief executive, Gordon Dewar, added: “This new direct route between Edinburgh and Paris Orly provides yet more evidence of Edinburgh being a thriving business and tourist destination.”
