The 21 new features included in this programme reflect the ongoing appeal of the region.
Passengers have been eagerly looking forward to long-haul flights, and this year they are making their return with 8 direct connections. North America has never been so well served. Air Canada and Air Transat will connect Nice to the Montreal hub, Delta Airlines will offer a daily flight to New York JFK, while La Compagnie and United Airlines, which will make its arrival at Nice Airport on this occasion, will also connect Nice to Newark on a daily basis. In addition, Gulf Air will operate at Nice for the first time and will open the route to Bahrain, Kuwait Airways will fly to Kuwait, with a stop at Rome Fiumicino, and Emirates will fly directly to Dubai. This summer, Nice Côte d’Azur will maintain its position as the second airport in France to offer long-haul seats, with 380,000 seats offered.
The 20 new features included in this programme are another strong marker of the recovery and ongoing appeal of the Côte d’Azur region. 5 airlines will operate at Nice for the first time: Condor, to Düsseldorf and Frankfurt, Icelandair, to Reykjavik, United Airlines, which is adding a third long-haul flight to New York, Gulf Air to Bahrain and Etihad to Abu Dhabi.
9 new destinations are also on offer:
Abu Dhabi, Alghero, Bahrain, Heraklion, Cluj, Reykjavik, Southampton, Tirana and Valencia, in Spain. The other new features correspond to the strengthening of existing routes, which are now even better connected.
“Despite the restrictions linked to the geopolitical situation, the strength of the summer programme at Nice Côte d’Azur Airport marks a new step towards a return to normality, which is both necessary and important to enable our region to re-establish an indispensable and sustainable economic and cultural activity,” explains Franck Goldnadel, Chairman of the Board of Aéroports de la Côte d’Azur.
