French airline Corsair will launch service at Miami International Airport on June 10, 2019, with four weekly flights to Paris Orly Airport, giving South Florida travelers another option to one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations.
The new flights will be served by 352-seat A330-300 aircraft featuring business, premium and economy class. The business cabin offers seats that can be converted into beds, as well as menus designed by double-Michelin-starred chef Michel Rostang and Petrossian.
“We look forward to welcoming Corsair and its passengers to Miami-Dade County,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez. “France already generates more than 400,000 travelers annually to and from our community, and we expect to see that number grow because of their new flights.”
“Corsair’s announcement is the latest milestone in our efforts to extend MIA’s reach throughout Europe,” said Lester Sola, MIA Director and CEO. “With Corsair’s Miami launch, we will soon have nonstop service to France’s two busiest airports, adding more strength to our current network of 21 European destinations.”
Created in 1981, Corsair is a subsidiary of TUI France and the TUI Group, a world leader in tourism serving 180 countries worldwide. Each year, nearly 1.3 million passengers travel on Corsair lines worldwide.
Pascal de Izaguirre, CEO of Corsair International, gave the following statement: “Corsair is delighted to open flights to Miami, a destination with high business and tourist potential that is perfectly aligned with our company’s DNA. We will have the pleasure of operating four flights a week to Florida with a high-quality offering in each of our three cabins, while maintaining highly competitive prices. In order to facilitate access to our flights, we have launched a new commercial website dedicated to our U.S.-based customers. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the airport team for their valuable collaboration in preparing the opening of this new route.”
