French low-cost airline transavia.com, owned by Air France-KLM group, is to launch a Boeing 737-800 year-round new daily service between Dublin and Paris-Orly Airport from next June.
Ostensively a Dutch airline, with a subsidiary base at Orly, the Dublin route is the first scheduled service to Ireland from the South Paris airport. Both Aer Lingus and Air France have Charles to Gaulle operations, and Ryanair serves Beauvais, which is well to the north of Paris. The new service, which will begin in June, will offer additional choice and flexibility for passengers travelling between Ireland and France.
transavia.com began operating in France in 2007 and has a fleet of 15 aircraft which will operate 64 routes next summer from French airports to destinations in Europe and the Mediterranean.
Vincent Harrison, Managing Director of Dublin Airport, said that he was delighted to welcome Transavia to Ireland. “Transavia is a strong brand in the French market and we look forward to working closely with them to support this new service from Paris-Orly Airport to Dublin. Paris is a very popular destination for both business and leisure traffic from Ireland and France is also a major market for inbound tourism to Ireland.” www.transavia.com
