Pent-up demand for a new service between Cork and Paris saw Air France last week convert what were initially seasonal flights to a year-round operation even before the Irish airport had officially welcomed its latest partner.
Airport managing director Niall MacCarthy said: “The confirmation one of the world’s largest airlines shares our confidence in the economy across the south of Ireland, and that Cork Airport can grow and sustain new routes, is a momentous boost for our development.
“Expanding the route before it is launched is clear evidence of the high demand for the direct link, both from our Irish passengers wanting to visit Paris as well as the popularity of Ireland for French business and leisure visitors.”
Joining the airport’s established services to Bordeaux, Carcassonne and Rennes, the additional capacity to Paris further fortifies France’s position as the fourth-largest country market to be served from the southern Irish gateway this summer.
MacCarhy added: “The new service not only connects Cork and Paris but offers a third link to a global hub, giving passengers access to an extensive long-haul network as well as easy access to short-haul connections to Brussels, Lisbon, Nice and Rome.”
