- Air France has strengthened its Paris CDG (CDG) network further this week by launching three new routes from its largest hub. On 26 May the carrier inaugurated flights to Bergen (BGO), Cork (ORK) and Wroclaw (WRO), with all three routes scheduled to be flown daily this summer. “We are delighted to celebrate the new Air France route direct from Cork Airport to Paris CDG. The fact that it has grown from an initial summer season only service to one that will operate year-round before it even commenced is a signal of the outstanding confidence placed in this route,” commented Niall MacCarthy, MD of Cork Airport. Cork is the only one of the three routes that will face direct competition in S18, with Aer Lingus already offering a daily connection. The 840-kilometre hop to Ireland and 1,048-kilometre link to Poland will be flown on E170s which are operated by HOP!. The 1,265-kilometre route to Norway will be flown using the SkyTeam member’s fleet of A319s.
