HOP! introduces daily flights from Montpellier to Lille and Strasbourg
HOP!, the re-branded regional operations of Air France, has launched two new domestic routes from Montpellier (MPL) in the south of France. The airline will serve Lille (LIL) with 12 weekly flights using a mix of small and large Embraer jets, while Strasbourg (SXB) will be served daily with a similar mix of aircraft. The Strasbourg route has been served since last September by Volotea with between two and three weekly flights, with Twinjet offering up to nine weekly flights using 19-seat Beech 1900Ds. Competition on the Lille route will again come from Volotea, who coincidentally also started the route this week. Direct services from Montpellier to Strasbourg and Lille were provided by Air Littoral until their demise in February 2004.
