How to get to Corsica?

There are two ways to get to Corsica: by air and by sea. The former is more comfortable yet more expensive (with minor exceptions), while the latter gives you more freedom for less money.

By air

Corsica is not on any of the major air routes and almost all direct flights depart from continental France (most often from Nice, Marseille, Lyon or Paris). Most flights to Corsica depart from France and are operated either by Air France or by CCM Airlines (Air Corsica). There are not many scheduled direct flights to Corsica from other countries but France (just a few from UK, Germany and Netherlands). On the other hand, you can fly to Marseille, Nice (both have round trip connections up to 6 times a day) or Montpellier from almost anywhere and then continue by a ferry. The regular liaisons between the island and the UK are run on sundays.
