Air Corsica will once again link Lyon to Corsica from June 15

AIR CORSICA, the only airline that connects Lyon to Corsica all year round, will be the first to reopen its routes to Ile de Beauté, an exceptional holiday destination in France this summer.

From June 15, the Lyon-Ajaccio and Lyon-Bastia lines will each be operated again, with 4 weekly flights (Monday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday).

From July 1st, AIR CORSICA will resume the program initially planned on the four routes from Lyon, to Ajaccio, Bastia, Calvi and Figari. This offer represents nearly 70,000 seats overall.

Following government announcements which authorize travel beyond 100 km from its home, Corsica will undoubtedly be a flagship holiday destination for this summer. Tickets are now on sale on the website and in travel agencies.

Luc Bereni, Chairman of the Executive Board of AIR CORSICA, said: “ AIR CORSICA, present at Lyon-Saint Exupéry airport for more than 20 years, is one of the rare airlines not to have interrupted its activities in recent weeks. We are thus in a position of strength to reactivate our summer program without delay and allow a rapid resumption of air traffic flows to Corsica. We are very proud to be the first to reopen routes between Lyon and Corsica, which is quite natural since we are the only ones to be present throughout the year on this market . ”

 For Tanguy Bertolus, President of the Lyon Airport Management Board: " We are very pleased to welcome once again the flights of Air Corsica, Lyon Aéroport's long-standing partner on the routes to Corsica, with which we have strong development ambitions in "All the VINCI Airports teams in Lyon are mobilized and ready to welcome passengers in the best conditions, thanks to the sanitary measures deployed throughout the airport. "
