Tourism Ireland Welcomes New Air France Flight From Paris To Cork For 2018

By Dave Simpson

Tourism Ireland has welcomed the announcement by Air France of a new daily flight from Paris to Cork for summer 2018. The new service is expected to provide a boost for tourism from the French market to Cork and the South West of Ireland this year.

Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said, “[The] announcement is more good news for tourism to Cork and the South of Ireland for 2018. It will certainly expand travel options for French holidaymakers wishing to visit this part of Ireland. We already work very closely with Air France and we look forward to co-operating with them to maximise the promotion of this new service from Paris. As an island, the importance of convenient, direct, non-stop flights cannot be overstated – they are absolutely critical to achieving growth in inbound tourism.

“France is one of the top four markets for tourism to Ireland and 2017 was the fifth record-breaking year in a row for French visitors to Ireland. In fact, by the end of this year, we will have welcomed around 544,000 French visitors, up almost 4% on last year.”
