“We are delighted to be in a position to launch a year-round service rather than a seasonal service when operations commence in May. I am confident that the extra choice and connectivity this will bring, both outbound and inbound, will be well received by the local community. Our continued investment in the Irish market will result in stronger business links between Ireland and France and we are proud to be able to further support tourism and local businesses in the region,” said Bénédicte Duval, General Manager of Air France KLM UK & Ireland.

Niall MacCarthy, Managing Director at Cork Airport said, “Cork Airport welcomes this announcement which signals outstanding confidence in the metropolitan city region served by Cork Airport to sustain and grow new routes and services.”
