Cork Airport, the International gateway to the south of Ireland, is delighted to announce new daily routes between Paris and Cork with Air France.
This May, a new route connecting Cork to Paris will open, bringing the south west of Ireland and mainland Europe even closer. In addition to the current 55 direct access routes from Cork to the UK and Europe, a new daily flight with Air France will not only link delegates traveling to Cork from Paris, it will connect business tourists from over 180 destinations worldwide to the south west of Ireland via the international hub of Paris-Charles de Gaulle.
Benedicte Duval, General Manager of Air France-KLM UK & Ireland stated:
Demand for efficient, seamless and convenient travel from the south of Ireland continues to grow and we are delighted to be in a position to offer both business and leisure passengers in the region even greater choice and connectivity. The new service not only links Cork to the French capital and the rest of Europe, but it provides passengers with the opportunity to connect to our extensive network of over 180 exciting worldwide destinations. We look forward to welcoming new and returning passengers on board Air France in the coming months.
Welcoming the new route, Niall MacCarthy, Managing Director at Cork Airport said:
"This is great news, not only for those seeking to travel to France, but also for those wishing to venture further afield." He added "Cork Airport’s business strategy for 2018 is focused on growing airlines, routes and connections from Cork. The new Air France Paris route serves this aim. Ireland is ranked as the fourth most popular destination with the French and the new service from Cork will further grow inbound tourism from this key continental market to counties across the south of Ireland."
