Air Corsica announced a new route to London Stansted to Calvi from May 18, 2019, opening up the north-western coast of the island.
The new route to Calvi will operate once a week boosting flights between the UK and Corsica and allowing easier access to the stunning island. In addition, the airline has extended its travel schedule from the UK with a wider period of dates to Ajaccio, Bastia and Figari starting from April 2019.
Following a hugely successful first year operating in the UK, there has been a dramatic increase in demand from UK visitors travelling to Corsica. The extended dates and additional route to Calvi will allow access to four different airports on the island over four different days in the week, opening up the destination.
Air Corsica will be operating four to ten flights a week giving travellers the ability to arrive at one airport and leave from another allowing them full flexibility to discover the entirety of Corsica.
Hervé Pierret, Air Corsica’s Managing Director, said:
“The new Calvi route is testament to the growing popularity of Corsica, as a destination for UK market. By starting the 2019 season earlier, we continue to strengthen our offer for travel to Corsica from the UK to keep up with demand from our customers.”
