Brighton gets its own international airport

Ticket sales open on Satruday for twice-daily scheduled flights from Shoreham to Paris with a brand new airline, Brighton City Airways, prompting the airport to rename as Brighton (Shoreham) Airport.

First flights will depart on March 6, flying to Paris Pontoise, which is close to central Paris, allowing passengers to reach the city centre within two hours of parking at Shoreham and costing from £69 one way, including taxes and charges.

Neil Laughton, one of the two Sussex-based aviation experts, who have founded the airline said, “This has long-term benefits for the local community too as there are many businesses in Sussex who can use this service on a regular basis and holiday makers or Paris day trippers can also make the most of travelling to and from Shoreham’s airport, where parking is easy and check in to take off takes just minutes.”

Some of the special features of the airline include 15 minute check-in, no hidden fees, VIP lounge and service, easy local parking and the flight, which is in a 19-seat Let 410 commuter aircraft, takes one hour to reach Paris. Pontoise Airport is also conveniently close to La Defense Business District of Paris, which is just 22 miles away.

Airport manager Ric Belfield said, “This is absolutely what we want to see; scheduled international travel bringing lots of people through our historic airport, which was the first licensed airfield in Britain. This has prompted us to rename the airport Brighton (Shoreham) Airport, to link it properly to our neighbouring city.”

Flights to Paris in the spring can be booked with a £20 deposit and the rest of payment is only required two weeks before the flight date with the opportunity to change names on the tickets for no charge. To book flights, visit www.brightoncityairways.com.
