Corsair opts for New York JFK instead of Newark

  • In September 2019, Corsair announced the opening of a new daily flight between Paris and New York, as of June 10, 2020. Six months before the first flight, the French airline announced a modification of its offer. The flights will not land in Newark as planned but in New York-JFK. “Concerned about improving the experience of its customers, Corsair worked closely with New York airports to study all possibilities for improving the program initially broadcast,” explains Corsair.
  • On the outward journey, flights will therefore take off from Orly at 3.20 p.m. arriving at JFK Terminal 1 at 6 p.m. On the way back, JFK departures will be scheduled at 8:00 p.m. for arrival at Orly the next day at 9:30 a.m. “The departure at 8 pm from New York allows tourists to have a full day of meetings or visits before returning to Paris,” enthuses Corsair.

Why this change of airport?

  • Originally, outbound flights left Orly at 6 p.m. and were due to arrive at 8:25 p.m. in Newark. The return was scheduled for 10:45 pm for an arrival in Paris the next day at noon. Corsair’s explanations concerning an improvement in the program for passengers are therefore half true … Passengers will certainly gain a little time on arrival but on return, contrary to what Corsair says, they will leave earlier than the scheduled time. was originally planned.
  • If Corsair does not give the real reason for this change of airport, we can obviously think that it is above all a question of competing with Air France, which uses Terminal 1 of JFK.
  • Corsair will be able to titillate Air France all the more as the airline announces the deployment of brand new Airbus A330-900 neo from September 2020. The aircraft will offer 3 classes: a Business class with 20 seats, a Premium class with 21 seats and Economy class with 311 seats. One last information: reservations are already open!
