French low-cost airline Transavia recently began flying from Dublin to Paris-Orly Airport, a service that the carrier intends to operate all year.
The airline began operating the service once a day this month, and says it plans to fly between the capital cities all year around.
Its chief commercial officer, Hervé Kozar, said the airline “believes strongly” in the route, and that it wanted to grow it further in the coming months.
Fares begin at about €40 per person one-way.
Paris Orly is the nearest airport to the centre of the French capital, and has a direct light-rail link to its underground network.
Transavia is the low-cost airline of the Air France -KLM Group.
It has its base in France and the Netherlands, and provides scheduled and charter flights to about 160 destinations, mainly through Europe and the Mediterranean area. It added a number of new destinations this summer, including Dublin.
It originally announced plans to operate between the Irish and French capitals shortly before Christmas.
