Paris link welcomed

Tourism Ireland has welcomed the announcement by Air France of a new daily flight from Paris


 to Cork for summer 2018. The new service will provide a welcome boost for tourism from the all-


important French market to Cork and the South West of Ireland next year.
 Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said: “Today’s announcement is more good news for tourism to Cork and the South of Ireland for 2018. It will certainly expand travel options for Fre


nch holidaymakers wishing to visit this part of Ireland. We already work very closely with Air France and we look forward to co-operating with them to maximise the promotion of this new service from Paris. As an island, the importance of convenient, direct, non-stop flights cannot be overstated – they are absolutely critical to achieving growth in inbound tourism.
 “France is one of the top four markets for tourism to Ireland and 2017 was the fifth record-breaking year in a row for French visitors to Ireland. In fact, by the end of this year, we will have welcomed around 544,000 French visitors, up almost +4% on last year.”
