East Midlands Airport has confirmed a new route to one of the world’s busiest airports, where passengers will be able to access flights to far-flung destinations

A new route between East Midlands Airport (EMA) and one of the world’s busiest airports has opened up hundreds of new destinations to travellers. 

Eastern Airways has recently switched its Paris destination from Orly to Charles de Gaulle, which offers connections to 276 destinations across the world and is served by more than 100 airlines.

As a result of the route switch, Air France has introduced the option to directly book a point-to-point journey from EMA to any of its worldwide destinations via Charles de Gaulle. 

This means that holidays in a wide range of places in America, Canada, South America, Africa, India, the Middle East, Far East and elsewhere are now an easy option via EMA. 

The Eastern Airways connection to Charles de Gaulle also comes ahead of Paris hosting the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic games from July 26 to August 11. 

Eastern Airways will operate two flights a day between EMA and the Paris hub six days a week, with Saturdays added during the summer holidays.

Roger Hage, Commercial Director at Eastern Airways, said: “We are delighted to be extending our partnership with Air France and opening wider connectivity to Europe’s second biggest city for both business and leisure travellers.

“The first year has seen strong demand and notable growth throughout, which given the significance of Paris and France hosting the 2024 Olympics & Paralympics in the months ahead, the welcome move to Charles De Gaulle will help improve direct access year-round to France including Disneyland Paris.”
