The new route will operate on Monday, Thursday and Saturday using Avro RJ85 jets configured for 95 passengers in a 3-3 configuration, with 32 inches of seat pitch and complimentary food in-flight.

Cityjet will also launch twice-weekly flights from Amsterdam and a three-times weekly service from Dublin (one direct and two via Amsterdam) to Pau from the start of April.
