The south of Ireland’s latest link to Paris, a new Air France service between Cork and Charles de Galle Airport, which starts on 26 May, is to be year-round after the airline experienced what it says is a rush of positive forward bookings.
Flights to the French capital, which will also offer connections to 180 onward destinations, were originally scheduled to finish on 27 October but will now continue into the winter 2018-2019 season.
Air France KLM UK & Ireland general manager Bénédicte Duval said: “We are delighted to be in a position to launch a year-round service rather than a seasonal service when operations commence in May.
“I am confident the extra choice and connectivity this will bring, both outbound and inbound, will be well received by the local community. Our continued investment in the Irish market will result in stronger business links between Ireland and France.”
Cork Airport managing director Niall MacCarthy added: “Cork Airport welcomes this announcement, which signals outstanding confidence in the metropolitan city region served by the airport to sustain and grow new routes and services.”
Flights will be operated by the Air France regional subsidiary Hop! using Embraer 170 aircraft carrying up to 76 passengers.
