Air France is to begin services out of Cork Airport from May, with a new Cork to Paris-Charles de Gaulle route. The flight will not only link Cork to France, but also connect passengers from the south of Ireland to Air France’s network of over 180 destinations worldwide via the international hub of Paris-Charles de Gaulle.
The new service will bring an additional 33,750 available seats, commencing May 26 and running through until October 27, 2018. The 1h 50mins flight will depart Cork Airport daily at 4.30pm and arrive at Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 7.20pm (local time). The return leg departs Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 2.55pm (local time) and arrives at Cork at 3.50pm.
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.
Welcoming the new route, Niall MacCarthy, Managing Director at Cork Airport said: “This is great news, not only for those seeking to travel to France, but also for those wishing to venture further afield. By flying out of Cork Airport with Air France, travellers will have easy access to many long-haul destinations from Paris-Charles de Gaulle, such as Brazil, Mauritius, Mexico and Algeria as well as easy short haul connections to Nice, Brussels, Rome and Lisbon.”
