Amelia launches Clermont-Ferrand to Paris Orly, a core route from CFE
Amelia International started Clermont-Ferrand to Paris Orly today (14 September), with the 332-kilometre service using ATR-72s.
The route was operated by Air France’s Hop until March this year; it had 165,000 seats in the year to March, OAG data shows. So the gap that Amelia is targeting.
Hop is now focusing on Clermont-Ferrand to Paris CDG.
Cindy Hugon-Duprat, Marketing Manager – Aviation and Commercial Business Development, Clermont-Ferrand, told anna.aero: “We are delighted to welcome Amelia International with its twice-daily flights to Orly.
“This route is key for the territory as it represents one-quarter of our passengers and it is essential for business travel and local tourism. The schedule will allow day trips to Paris as well as connections to onward destinations.
“Last year, the top-five connections through Orly from Clermont-Ferrand were Nice, Reunion – St-Denis, Pointe-a-Pitre, Fort de France, and Brest.
“We are looking forward to work together with the airline to strengthen this partnership and work on future development opportunities.”
