New regional flights by fledgling European carrier Fly Kiss linking France and the UK are set for take-off on 7 November, the airline announced last week.
The airline, based at Clermont-Ferrand Auvergne International Airport and created by the French group Enhance Aero, plans to operate across a network of 11 routes including a sole overseas service to and from Luton. Flights will also serve Nice, Strasbourg, Lille and Brest.
Fly Kiss will operate with a fleet of 49-seat Embraer ERJ-145s which are already part of the Enhance Aero group's portfolio with an initial mixture of non-stop and one-stop flights which it says will improve significantly connectivity between city pairs that have limited or no current links.
The start-up will link Clermont-Ferrand to Luton four times a week and link Brest to Luton three times a week, with onward direct connections to Strasbourg.
They will be the only current non-stop flights linking both Brest and Clermont-Ferrand to London and for the winter 2016/17 schedule the only direct flight between Strasbourg and the capital.
Fly Kiss says it will continue initially to focus on domestic flights. On the route to Nice, it will be in direct competition with the Air France subsidiary Hop!
