Corsica specialist adds second Manchester flight for Summer 2014


Corsican Places is pleased to announce a brand new and exclusive Manchester to Figari (Southern Corsica) flight with Flybe for its forthcoming 2014 season. This adds to the tour operator’s charter flight programme which also includes a Manchester to Calvi (North West Corsica) service, thus giving customers from the region access to both the North and South of the island.

The flight will operate on Sundays for a 14 week period, from June 22nd – September 21st, with convenient 09.45 departure times and return 15.20 slots. Complimentary pre allocated seating with a generous 30“seat pitch is available on board the 76 seater aircraft as well as a snack and bar service (on supplement). A luggage allowance of 23kgs, with additional 5kg cabin allowance, is provided.

The popular beaches surrounding the region of Porto Vecchio are within easy reach of Figari, as is the picturesque town of Bonifacio on the southernmost tip, from where the neighbouring island of Sardinia is a short ferry ride.

Corsican Places has 27 years’ experience in providing holidays to the island and offers visitors the widest selection of holiday accommodation available to the UK market. Its 2014 collection features more than 160 properties which range from intimate beach side apartments and family friendly residences, to deluxe hotels and luxury villas with pools - including a “Premium” selection for discerning guests which includes villas in magnificent locations with breath-taking views.

Walking holidays and touring holidays exploring some of the most beautiful areas of the island are also available through Corsican Places along with twin centre holidays combining Sardinia through sister company Sardinian Places.

Corsican Places product manager Amandine Blanchard said: “We are thrilled to extend our flight options to Corsica from Manchester and will continue to develop our programme to offer our customers the quality and service they expect and deserve from a niche operator.”
