Brighton City Airways has announced that from next Tuesday it will temporarily suspend its recently launched services between Brighton and Paris.
The airport in Shoreham has blamed ongoing French customs and immigration delays in setting up a point of entry at Paris Pontoise airport.
Just two weeks before we launched the airline in March, we were advised by the French authorities that there would be a short delay of a couple of weeks before a customs and immigration port of entry was in place at Paris Pontoise.
However, eight weeks later, this intolerable issue remains in place and with no firm date set for a resolution.
In the meantime, we have been obliged to land in another French airport – usually Rouen or Le Touquet – en route to Pontoise and the authorities have very rarely come aboard to check passports.

This has meant having two take offs and climbs instead of one, longer flight times, extra airport fees and extra maintenance costs, all of which add up to a single flight to Paris costing us 60 per cent more than a direct flight would cost, never mind the inconvenience for passengers.
We are truly sad to suspend the flights, not least because our ticket sales are over target and the demand for this airline is proven to be there, but we are forced to postpone flights until the issue is solved at Paris Pontoise.
People from Weymouth and Portland will come together later to mark the 70th anniversary of the Battle of the Atlantic. A flag will be raised to recognise the British and Allied contribution.
