New European discount airline Level has served its hub, Barcelona’s El Prat International Airport, for about a year, but the IAG airline announced plans to expand its service and to set up a new base in Paris.

By the year 2020, Level executives hope to create and expand its Paris presence with up to 30 planes. By offering flights from Paris, Level will compete directly with Air France’s new discount airline targeted to millennials: Joon.

The rise of the discount airline took the European travelsphere by storm as flying within the continent is often cheaper than taking a train or driving. But with the introduction of long-haul discount flights with airlines like Norwegian Air and Wow air, Level plans to compete by reaching less-visited markets and offering even lower prices.

As with most low-cost airlines, the catch is the removal of typically included services such as in-flight meals and checked baggage allowances, both of which come with additional fees.

From Paris’s Orly Airport, Level flights will travel non-stop to New York for approximately $150 and to destinations like Montreal, Guadeloupe and Martinique for $117. From Barcelona, Level flies to Los Angeles, Oakland, Buenos Aires and Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.
