After a very good summer, the airline announces its flight program for winter 2023-2024, including the continuation of flights from Bordeaux and Nantes.
The airline Corsair had a very good summer 2023 season, marked by very dynamic demand, despite the current inflationary context. The company thus noted a strong increase in its sales, with an increase of 20% compared to summer 2022 and 42% compared to summer 2019. For this same period, the company’s offer in terms of capacity increased by 6% compared to 2022. This increase in capacity is more marked in Africa, the Antilles and Mauritius.
This very good season is part of a 2022-2023 financial year marked by a historic sales record. The financial year will thus close with a turnover of more than 640 million euros, a historic record for the company, an increase of 48% compared to the pre-Covid year.
