The airline Easy Jet will open in August a La Rochelle – Nice line, at the rate of two flights per week.
The connection will be made by Airbus, with a capacity of more than 150 seats, every Friday and Sunday, from August 2, 2020, at the following times: departure from La Rochelle at 3:20 pm, arrival in Nice at 4:55 pm; departure from Nice at 1 p.m., arrival at La Rochelle at 2:50 p.m.
“While many French will favor holidays or short stays in France this summer, this new service will bring the Mediterranean coast and the Atlantic coast closer,” rejoices the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of La Rochelle. She sees in this opening “a mark of confidence on the part of this major airline which, we hope, will augur the development of this air link over a longer period next year”.
Ten destinations this summer
Easy Jet has also confirmed the resumption of its links to London-Gatwick and Geneva from the end of July.
Ten destinations are scheduled from La Rochelle Airport – Ile de Ré for the months of July and August, to Lyon, Dublin, Ajaccio, London Stansted, Manchester (from July 18), London Gatwick (at from July 25), Geneva (from July 30), Brussels Charleroi (from August 1), Porto (from August 1) and Nice.
