This summer, British Airways launched a baby airline called OpenSkies, flying from Brussels and Paris to New York City without stopping in Britain.

Today we learn that daily flights will begin between New York City and Amsterdam on October 15. Tickets will go on sale sometime in August.

OpenSkies offers upscale service at higher fares than British Airways. But it does have an economy class section with fares starting at about $1,000 round-trip between New York City and Paris.

UPDATE July 30; 3:40 p.m. ET: Please see our update on this post, here.

A few weeks ago, it bought rival airline L’Avion, which flew two 757s between New York City and Paris.
