New flight routes between Stansted and Corsica

Air Corsica has announced it will be flying from Stansted to Ajaccio and Bastia with a third service to Figari coming soon.

Air Corsica has announced three new routes between the Stansted and the French island of Corsica – direct to Ajaccio, Bastia and Figari.  

It is the first time the airline has operated scheduled flights to Corsica from the UK, with nine weekly flights from May until November and a third service to Figari to be added on 2 June.

Air Corsica's managing director Hervé Pierret said: "We are proud to become a new operator at London Stansted airport and offer up to nine weekly services to Corsica from next summer, bringing island-to-island services at competitive all-inclusive prices with no add-on fees. 

"We expect that these new routes will become a firm favourite as an easily accessible and affordable destination and will no doubt provide more than a match for the long-established Mediterranean resorts" 

Stansted’s commercial director Martin Jones said Corsica was a "fantastic" addition to the airport's growing network, one that would prove popular with passengers from across London and the east of England.

"Everyone at the airport looks forward to working closely with the Air Corsica team to create a strong partnership and generate even more interest in Corsica and London Stansted, and ensure these new routes are a huge success," Jones added.
