Getting to Corsica from UK April 2012 for honeymoon - help!!

Hello there,

My fiancee and I hopefully will travel to Corsica for our honeymoon on 23rd April 2012 returning 4th May 2012. There are some websites which I have found that do deals including flights - but on searching on airlines etc there are a.) no direct flights to Corsica from the UK b.) no indirect flights which wouldn't involve prolonged stops on the way.

Does anyone know how best to travel to Corsica from the UK (Newcastle preferably) at this time? I would greatly value your help.

Easyjet to Nice, Marseille, Paris or Lyon and then Aircorsica to Calvi, Bastia, Ajaccio or Figari. You could catch the ferry from Nice or Marseille if the timing is right, but it usually isn't.

Congratulations!

In April there is no direct flight (TUI operates a Manchester Figari in summer time only) so your best option would be as stated above Newcastle-Nice (easyjet) and Nice-Figari/Bastia/Ajaccio (AirCorsica).

Alternatively you can also approach specialists such as CorsicanPlaces from the UK that also have access to charter flights (although challenging in April).

For airports, prefer Figari in you visit the South of the island and Bastia/Ajaccio if you go in the North. Do you know your hotel yet?

Enjoy Corsica!

This is a company we used that has many s/c locations in Corsica, in many budgets.

Airfare is included/arranged.

Good luck!

We flew with Easy Jet from Manchester direct to Corsica (Bastia) - maybe check their website? Corsica is wonderful, by the way!
