CityJet has announced its summer 2016 programme from London City Airport, which will see the carrier return to both Avignon and Toulon with an extended programme for the season.
Services to Avignon will increase to twice weekly with flights on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The city, surrounded by medieval stone ramparts, is steeped in culture and contains the Palais des Papes and the Saint-Bénezet bridge, made famous by the song ‘Sur le Pont d’Avignon’. Avignon is the capital of the Vaucluse region and provides an excellent gateway to Provence and main tourist attractions of the south-east of France.
Flights to Avignon will operate from 29th June to 31st August 2016.
CityJet will return to Toulon in 2016 with three flights per week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Toulon, with its historic harbour and old town, provides easy access to the Mediterranean coastline, beaches and campsites that have proven increasingly popular with tourists.
Flights to Toulon will operate from 23rd June until 26th September 2016.
Cathal O’Connell, CityJet’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “As the nights close in, it is great to be able to look forward to next year’s summer break. Both Avignon and Toulon proved extremely popular in 2015 and we are delighted to be able to offer an extended schedule for next year, with a longer season and more flights available.
“CityJet’s complimentary onboard catering and free 23kg baggage allowance make us a family friendly airline. We believe these summer services will prove a winner again with the public, offering a hassle-free way to travel on holidays.”
