Vueling will operate the route on Mondays and Fridays. Making it an ideal city break route in both directions.
Niall MacCarthy, Managing Director at Cork Airport said.
“We are thrilled to welcome a brand-new airline, Vueling, the Spanish low cost carrier and part of the IAG group to Cork as our newest scheduled carrier. The new twice weekly service to Paris Orly, the nearest airport to the centre of Paris, will operate on Mondays and Fridays. This news is exciting for business and tourism at both ends of the route and will further grow inbound tourism from this key continental market to counties across the South of Ireland.”
