Corsica Lista backs Easyjet plans

Happy Easter! Today, a friend and business colleague who has been using our apartment in Calvi will be on his way home to the UK. He will no doubt remind me tomorrow just how pleasant Corsica is at this time of year.

In the meantime, it seems I am not the only one who had doubts (See March 29th) about the French Government's decision to stop Easyjet opening a new route between Paris and Ajaccio. On an admittedly small sample, the Yahoo discussion group Corsica Lista ( voted by 71% to 28% in favour of the proposed new route. This group consists of a potpourri of people from all over the world, including people who live on the island.

Personally, I'd find the new route very helpful. It would also be good to have a route between the UK and Corsica in early Spring (March and April) and late autumn (late October and November). I think the folk who plan these routes are underestimating Corsica's ability to attract tourists in April. If you like walking, wildlife, flowers and lazing around in warm (as opposed to hot) sunshine, it's one of the best times to go.
