A NEW daily service between Cork and Paris-Charles de Gaulle has been launched.
Initially announced in February as a summer service, due to positive forward bookings, the route was extended to a year-round service before it even commenced.
Barry ter Voert, senior vice-president Europe Air France KLM said: ‘We recognise the importance of choice and connectivity for those living in Southern Ireland and are proud to offer worldwide connections to the people of Cork via our hub at Paris Charles de Gaulle. This new route will also boost tourism, driven by the popularity of Southern Ireland with international tourists, and it will further support local business by improving connections to the world.’
He added: ‘Continued investment in both product and route network is a key focus for the Air France KLM group and we are proud to be launching Cork as one of our new daily routes this summer.’
The daily flight, which leaves Cork at 4.30pm, is operated by Air France Hop! using Embraer 170 aircraft, carrying up to 76 passengers.
Fares start from €129 return in economy, including all taxes. Flights are available from the Air France website at www.airfrance.com
