Ooh la la…
If you enjoy a jaunt to the City of Light from time to time, you’ll have double the opportunity this spring.
Air France has announced it is doubling its frequency on the Cork Airport to Paris-Charles de Gaulle route, with the addition of a second daily service from April to October 2020.
The airline will now operate a twice daily service for summer 2020, with the addition of a new early morning flight from Cork and a late evening service from Paris. These new flights will complement the existing Cork to Paris-Charles de Gaulle daily schedule.
36,000 more seats
The expansion plan for the additional 36,000 seats during summer 2020 by Air France is a significant boost for inbound and outbound tourism for Cork and the greater Munster region, offering connectivity to Air France’s extensive network of 195 destinations worldwide.
“We are really thrilled to see the doubling of frequency of Air France’s summer 2020 service between Cork and Paris.” said Cork Airport’s Managing Director Niall MacCarthy.
“At Cork Airport we have over 50 direct routes, however, our daily flights to major international hubs across Europe extends that even further. As Air France spreads its wings over five continents — from New York to Bangkok, Kenya to Cuba — a double daily service makes long-haul options from Cork Airport now easier and more convenient.”
It’ll be good news for business travellers too; the addition of a new early morning flight to Paris and a return flight later in the evening means that those doing business in the French capital can now conveniently travel over and back in one day.
