Launching the new route, the airline described Cork as ‘the rebellious county’:
‘Enhanced by its many bridges and proudly nestled on an island in the middle of the River Lee, Cork is less than two hours from France. As Ireland’s second most populated city, it is a major economic and cultural focal point in Ireland. With its many film and music festivals, local products and warm hospitality, Cork embodies the authenticity of southern Ireland.’
The Cork flight schedule (daily, in local time) is as follows:
AF1094: leaves Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 14:55, arrives in Cork at 15:50
AF1095: leaves Cork at 16:30, arrives at Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 19:20
Throughout the summer season, Air France will operate a daily flight to Cork and 28 weekly flights to Dublin. During the winter season, there are 28 flights to Dublin.
All flights will be operated by Air France Hop! using Embraer 170 aircraft, carrying up to 76 passengers. Fares start from €129 return in economy including all taxes.
