Cork Airport has welcomed news that as of October 28, 2018, Air France will increase capacity on its Cork to Paris service by 24%, adding an additional 336 seats per week.
Commenting on the news, Air France KLM UK & Ireland general manager Bénédicte Duval said, “We are delighted to be in a position to increase capacity by 24% on the Cork to Paris route just a few months after launching in the region. The positive performance to date is testament to the economic recovery in southern Ireland and the investment Air France-KLM is making in this region. The extra capacity will offer our Irish customers more choice and connectivity, further facilitating growth in both the inbound and outbound markets.”
A Leading Tourism Market
Meanwhile, Cork Airport managing director Niall MacCarthy stated, “France is one of the leading markets for tourism to the island of Ireland. The expansion by Air France will make it even easier for French visitors to travel to the south of Ireland and explore all that the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland’s Ancient East have to offer. It also benefits Irish passengers travelling to Paris and onwards across the globe via Air France’s hub at Paris-Charles de Gaulle.”
