Paris flights launched in Shoreham

DAILY flights to Paris from Shoreham were launched yesterday (Wednesday).

Brighton City Airways, the new airline operating from Brighton (Shoreham) Airport, says the flights provide the fastest link to France’s capital from the area.

The flights land at Paris Pontoise, close to central Paris, allowing passengers to reach the city centre within two and a half hours of parking at Shoreham.

Airport manager Ric Belfield said: “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.”
