AER Lingus’ inaugural service direct from Cork to Nice, France has taken to the skies from Cork Airport. 

Connecting the South of Ireland to the South of France, Aer Lingus flight EI 826 will be operated by an A320 aircraft and the new service will fly every Wednesday and Sunday.

The inaugural flight marked the commencement of Aer Lingus’ summer 2019 schedule with over 1 million Aer Lingus seats available from the rebel county this summer, an increase of 4% since summer 2018.

Cork native Sean Doyle, chief executive officer at Aer Lingus said: ‘We are committed to enhancing our offering from Cork Airport and the introduction of the new Cork to Nice route will give those in the Munster region more travel opportunities for both leisure and business as well as an influx of tourism opportunities to the county which, as a Cork man myself, is of personal importance to me.’
