Réunion Island from Lyon starting from summer 2021

(Re)Discover Réunion from Lyon-Saint Exupéry airport

The Lyonnais will be able to explore Reunion Island (and Mayotte) starting from next summer. 

In order to facilitate access to the Indian Ocean for the inhabitants of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, Corsair will offer a program of flights from Lyon to Réunion twice a week from June 21, 2021.

Flights will be operated only at night, with a very short stopover in Marseille (1h10), without disembarking, without changing the aircraft, luggage remaining on board.

On arrival in Réunion, passengers will also be able to benefit from a very fast connecting flight to Mayotte (in 1h35 in the outward direction towards Mayotte and 1 hour in the return direction towards the Metropolis/province), via a simple transit in the boarding area. 

The flights will be operated on Airbus A330-900 NEO, new generation aircraft.
