Two New French Routes from Cork Airport with CityJet

CityJet will add two new French routes to its schedule from Cork Airport. The two new routes to La Rochelle and Nantes in France will operate a twice weekly service to La Rochelle on Tuesday and Saturday, while Cork – 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 on-board catering, whilst 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,” Mr Byrne added.

The historic city of La Rochelle 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, Managing Director at Cork Airport 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.”
