VINCI Airports has implemented three new routes from France’s Toulon Hyères Airport to Paris-Orly, Nantes-Atlantique, and Brest-Bretagne.
All these sites will be linked via Dutch airline Transavia from Spring-onwards.
Toulon Hyères Airport will run flights to Paris-Orly thrice a week while flights to Nantes-Atlantique and Brest-Bretagne airports will operate twice a week.
VINCI Airports chairman Nicolas Notebaert said: “The establishment of routes to Orly, Nantes and Brest by Transavia will enable the airport to continue to meet the mobility needs of the people of the Var and of companies, and to welcome tourists to this exceptional region.
“At VINCI Airports, we are convinced of the need to open up the region, particularly to rebuild the economy and employment, and we are working alongside airlines such as Transavia to achieve this.”
For the safety of both employees and travellers, VINCI Airports has implemented several health measures at all of its airports.
Some of the health measures include the availability of hydro-alcoholic gel at numerous distribution points, enhanced cleaning and sterilisation, glass screens at most of the counters, and a system of floor markings for people to maintain distance while standing in queues.
Toulon-Hyères Airport director Laurence Erbs said: “Despite the situation linked to the health crisis, we are now demonstrating our resilience. The arrival of Transavia at Toulon Hyères is a fine example of this! We are pleased to welcome this high-quality company. These three destinations, eagerly awaited by all, mark a real turning point for the development of the airport.”
Transavia France CEO Nathalie Stubler added: “We are delighted to be able to offer attractive new offers from Toulon. We will work closely with the airport and local partners to make these lines a success. We look forward to celebrating the first Transavia flight from Toulon on 28 March.”
Recently, Dominican Republic’s Aerodom, a subsidiary of VINCI Airports, entered into an agreement with the Dominican laboratory Amadita to set up screening laboratories in its six airports.
The new laboratories provide services to all passengers, pilots, cabin crews and airport staff.
