Flights from Stansted to Corsica launch next summer
Air Corsica is to launch its first ever UK service when it begins flying to the French island from Stansted Airport next summer.
The Mediterranean route, which operates from May 3 to November 4 up to nine times a week to Bastia, Ajaccio and Figari airports will use the airline’s latest 180-seat Airbus A320 aircraft.
Stansted’s chief executive Ken O’Toole said: “I am delighted to welcome Air Corsica to London Stansted as our latest airline partner and very much look forward to the launch of its first ever scheduled flights to and from the UK when they begin the new service in May next year.
“Corsica is a fantastic addition to our extensive and growing network which now covers over 190 destinations across Europe and North America.
“I’m sure these flights will be very popular with passengers from across London and the growing East of England region who are looking to head off on their holidays and want even more choice of exciting destinations from their local airport. We look forward to working closely with Air Corsica to build a strong working relationship and ensure these new flights are a huge success.”
Philippe Dandrieux, Air Corsica chairman, said: “International development of our route network is key for Air Corsica’s growth, and London is among our priorities in serving European capitals, especially with Corsi-ca clearly missing on London Stansted’s route map.”
