Brighton to Paris

A new airline has been announced in the South of England linking Shoreham Airport, on the coast near Brighton, to Pontoise-Cormeilles Aerodrome, a small executive airport west of Paris and about 25 miles from the Arc de Triomphe.

Called Brighton City Airways, and operating a 19-seat LET-410 twin turboprop, the airline plans to offer up to four return flights daily when the service is launched on 6 March 2013.  The carrier claims from Brighton city centre to Paris city centre will take two-and-a-half hours – nearly as quick as London – Paris Eurostar journeys and far quicker than flights from Heathrow to the French capital.  There are no Paris services from Gatwick.  Southampton is an alternative and about 60 miles away.

Behind the project is entrepreneur Neil Laughton, a former Royal Marine, highly successful leadership speaker, business entrepreneur and adventurer.

“There must be a million and a half people in Sussex, Kent, Surrey and Hampshire for whom the quickest way of reaching Paris involves a trip all the way to St Pancras train station”, he said.

“This has long-term benefits for the local community too as there are many businesses in Sussex who can use this service on a regular basis”.  www.brightoncityairways.com
