Finistair has been linking Brest to Bordeaux since 16 November.
Clearly positioned in the business travel segment, the new Brest-Bordeaux route operated by Finistair has been operational since Tuesday. The nine-seater CESSNA Gran Caravan flies twice a week. From Brest, the departure takes place every Tuesday at 7am and Thursday at 4pm. The take-off from Bordeaux is on Tuesday morning at 9:30 am and Thursday evening at 6:30 pm, for a flight time of 1 hour and 50 minutes
with the economic recovery, the need for business travel is real
” The opening of the Brest-Bordeaux route comes at a time when several domestic airlines have been closed “, says Loïc Andro, Managing Director of Finistair. ” However, with the economic recovery, the need for business travel is very real. By launching this direct route between Brest and Bordeaux, we are bringing together two important economic activity zones on the Atlantic coast and providing an answer to the inter-regional mobility needs of company directors
Launched in 1981, Finistair is known for its service to the island of Ushant, which is provided under a public service obligation. A route that represents an average of 4,000 passengers per year. In 2020, the Breton carrier was bought by the W3 group, and acquired a second aircraft which should allow it to ensure its development.
I’m Michelle, and I love to travel. As a former hotel expert for one of the world’s largest hotel chains, I’ve stayed in nearly every type of room imaginable (including many that were not so desirable!). Nowadays, I am fortunate enough to be able to explore the world on my own terms. From international flights to learning different languages, there is nothing too far out of reach!
