Having originally announced its New York service as operating to New York Newark, French leisure airline Corsair International (SS, Paris Orly) has decided to commence its flights to New York JFK instead, ch-aviation schedule analysis has revealed. The A330-200-operated service was originally announced in September 2019 from Paris Orly.

The 5x weekly route will still commence on June 10, 2020. As with the airline's initial plan, the city pair will increase to daily from June 23 over the peak season until September 7. The New York service will switch to A330-900s from September 1.

According to the ch-aviation schedules module, Corsair offers a selection of long-haul services from Orly, including Abidjan (4x weekly), Fort de France (daily), Mauritius (3x weekly), Miami Int'l (4x weekly), Montréal Trudeau (4x weekly), Pointe à Pitre (daily), and St. Denis de la Réunion (daily). The airline operates a fleet of seven aircraft, made up of two A330-200s, two A330-300s and three B747-400s.

The Corsair route was launched at the same time as a competing daily service between Orly and Newark by French Bee (BF, Paris Orly). Its service on the 3,171-nautical mile (5,873-kilometre) sector will be operated by its fleet of A350-900s.
