Two New French Routes from Cork Airport with CityJet

CityJet has added two new French routes to its schedule from Cork Airport. The route to La Rochelle will operate twice weekly on Tuesday and Saturday, while the new route to Nantes will be a weekly service each Sunday from 18th June 2016.

Making the announcement, CityJet’s Executive Chairman, Pat Byrne, said: “We are delighted to offer direct flights to both La Rochelle and Nantes from next June, providing convenient access to these fabulous tourist regions of France. Just as importantly, it also opens up Cork to French visitors accessing the city and the south west.

“We are a family-friendly airline, with an all-jet fleet and complimentary onboard catering, while our generous free baggage allowance can save a family of four over €200 on a round trip compared to other options to France. With fares starting from just €69 each way, we know that these routes will be a popular option to and from France next summer.”

The historic city of La Rochelle (above) is the gateway to key camping and tourist destinations along the west coast of France, not least the town itself and the nearby Île de Ré. Nantes provides easy access to the Loire Atlantique coast and the Pays de la Loire, with its chateaux and historical towns, including some of the best vineyards in France. Both destinations are popular with Irish tourists seeking to experience the delights of France.

Welcoming the news, Niall MacCarthy, Cork Airport Managing Director, said: “The announcement of the two new routes to the South of France is more great news from CityJet following the recent commencement of the airline’s London City services. The new routes to La Rochelle and Nantes offer passengers in Munster even greater choice of destinations next summer and I have no doubt that both services will be hugely popular, especially at such great value fares.”
