Brighton City Airways Now Flying One Hour Trips To Paris

Brighton City Airways, the new airline operating from Brighton Shoreham Airport launched its daily services to Paris this week, providing the fastest link to France's capital from Brighton and the surrounding areas.



The flights are the only international scheduled service out of Brighton Shoreham Airport and land at Paris Pontoise, close to central Paris, allowing passengers to reach the city centre within just two and a half hours of parking at Shoreham – half the time it takes to travel via Heathrow or by train.  

There are no flights to Paris from Gatwick.  Brighton City Airways" tickets cost from £69 one way, including all taxes and charges. 

Brighton City Airways was conceived by Jonathan Candelon, MD of leading career pilot school Flying Time Aviation, based at Brighton Shoreham Airport, and Neil Laughton, entrepreneur, pilot and adventurer, famous for leading Bear Grylls to the summit of Mt. Everest and managing his Mission Everest world record motorised parachute flight in 2007.

Jonathan Candelon said: "Neil and I are excited to bring this new service to the Brighton area. We are not only making it easy and affordable for passengers to enjoy Paris for day trips, weekends and short or long breaks, but we are also bringing French visitors over to discover the South of England and its attractions." 


Avoiding the congestion and delays often associated with larger airports, the airline provides a fast and hassle-free travel experience.  

Special features include easy parking just yards from the terminal for £5 per night, quick check-in and boarding and a comfortable departure lounge.  

It takes just one hour to fly to Paris on the 19-seat Let 410 commuter aircraft and there are convenient rail connections to central Paris as well as to La Defense Business District, which is just 22 miles away. 

Shuttle transfers to train stations and parking at Shoreham can be purchased at the time of booking. 
  
The airline has an innovative and flexible approach to customer service - seats to Paris can be secured online at brightoncityairways.com with a £20 deposit (each way) and the remainder can be paid later, up to two weeks before the flight date.  

Shoreham airport manager Ric Belfield added: "This is absolutely what we want to see at the airport, scheduled international travel bringing people through our historic airport, which was the first licensed airfield in Britain. 

"This prompted us to rename the airport Brighton (Shoreham) Airport, to link it properly to our neighbouring city."
