“Starting with Air France KLM, this summer Air France launched new services to Kuala Lumpur, Montevideo and Minneapolis and KLM has commenced new services to Fukuoka in Japan and Allesund in Norway,” said Siobhan. “Customers can easily connect to Air France destinations from Dublin via our Paris CDG hub and to KLM destinations from Dublin and Cork via our Schiphol Amsterdam hub. We have also recently commenced our great ‘Wild on Wednesday’ fare promotions – where every Wednesday we announce a really fantastic discounted fare to one specific destination.
