Deauville – Normandy

Deauville is a stylish Normandy resort town that offers the perfect backdrop to a cultural city break as well as easy access to the region’s extensive beaches and historical villages and world class heritage sites such as Honfleur, Mont St. Michel, the Bayeux tapestry and the Normandy beaches.  Deauville is also home to a selection of luxurious hotels, spas, and golf courses as well as a famous racecourse and casino. And each September, Deauville becomes even more glamorous, as the annual Film Festival draws a cross-section of top Hollywood talent!

Says Geoffrey O’Byrne White, CEO, CityJet, ‘We’re delighted to be the first to offer flights to this attractive destination, it ads to our extensive European network out of London City Airport. The Normandy area in France is immensely popular with British holidaymakers, families and second home owners and the area now has a large population of British expats as well. The frequent service we’ll be offering will cater to that market as well as open up access to this stunning holiday region, with its beautiful beaches and countryside, to a wider audience.  Londoners will be able to escape the hustle and bustle of the capital this summer and enjoy long weekends and family holidays on the French coast.  With our convenient flight schedule and the fast 15 minute check-in at London’s most central airport, London City, we’ll ensure that our customers’ travel experience is quick and hassle-free, allowing them more time to enjoy their hard-earned holiday.’
