Don’t be surprised when looking for Corsica flights that there are no direct flights available to the island. Located 170 kms off the French coast, the island
is easily accessed by air, but flights will always have a connection through another European city.
Corsica is home to four international airports: Aeroport d’Ajaccio Napolean Bonaparte, Aeropart de Bastia – Poretta, Figari Sud Corse Airport and Sainte-Catherine
Airport or Aeroport de Calvi. The island as a whole, is served by over twenty scheduled air carriers, the most popular being Air France.
Air France operates year-round flights to all four international airports in Corsica except for Figari, from both Paris and Lyon. In peak tourist season
flights onboard Air France also depart from Bordeaux, Lille, Nantes and Mulhouse as well as from Strasbourg, to the Aeropart de Bastia and Aeroport d’Ajaccio
Napolean Bonaparte. Additionally, Air France provides air service from London, England to all four airports in Corsica.
Departing from Canada to Corsica, you will have a couple of options: book connecting flights onboard a scheduled air carrier to one of the island’s four
airports, or secure air seats to Paris or Lyon or another popular French city and then use a low-cost regional carrier to one of the island’s four airports.
It is advised to take help of a travel expert when booking either of these options as they can recommend which airline will leave you with the correct
amount of time to make your connection or which low-cost air carrier will work best with your international flight from Canada.
