From February 2013, Air France will open 6 low-cost destinations. So people can travel to and from Nice airport from €49. The destinations are Lille, Nantes, Paris Orly, Strasbourg and Lyon. They are also opening flights to Tel Aviv for €109.
Low-cost flights to Nice
The announcement is not just good news for French travellers. Lille is practically on the border with Belgium and is also a Eurostar train destination. So it adds low-cost flights for both travellers from the southwest of Belgium and possibly the south of England. Strasbourg is close to the German border.
Air France had noticed that almost half of the passengers of these destinations only brought hand luggage, which made it easier to offer lower prices. From February 6, these prices will be available for passengers without luggage in the hold, which will cost extra.
However, it is worth noting that only 10-15% of seats per flight will be available at these prices. So my recommendation is that if you see low-cost prices for Nice airport, grab them quickly!
