Up to 60 daily flights between Corsica and the French mainland


In June 1990, the new airline "Compagnie Corse Méditerranée", which is now called CCM Airlines, started operating flights between Nice, Marseille and Corsica in partnership with Air France.


20 years later, Air France is continuing its partnership with the Corsican airline. Alongside CCM Airlines, the regional airlines Britair and Régional also fly non-stop between the 4 Corsican airports and the main French regions.


Routes to Corsica are subject to public service obligations (PSO) which are published every three years and defined by the Corsican Transport Office (CTO).

Within this framework, Air France operates a real air link between the mainland and Corsica by flying to four Corsican airports: Ajaccio, Bastia, Calvi and Figari. On certain days in summer, Air France operates up to 60 flights between Corsica and the mainland by Airbus A319, A320 and A321.


During peak periods and to meet the heavy demand, Air France operates larger aircraft such as the Boeing 747 and for the first time the Boeing 777 with 472 seats between Paris and Bastia every Sunday between 3 July and 21 August 2010.


In Corsica, Air France provides its customers with two ticket offices, a ticket desk at each of the airports served as well as a call centre which takes care of telephone sales.


Did you know?

  • demand in summer 2010 from the public service obligations: 1,076,575 seats
  • Air France capacity in summer 2010: 1,139,930 seats, i.e. 63,355 more seats, or the equivalent of 350 additional flights by A320
