Embark from Quimper with a non-stop stopover in Brest

For this seasonal route between Finistère and Pyrénées-Atlantiques, flights are scheduled every Saturday from July 1 to September 2, 2023. The first passengers will board a 70-seat ATR at 1:05pm at Quimper airport. The aircraft will then make a non-stop stopover in Brest at 14:05. Less than two hours later, the final landing will take place in Pau at 3.45pm.

From the South-West of France, holidaymakers from the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region wishing to take advantage of the return flight will be able to board the aircraft from 4.20pm at Pau airport, arriving in Quimper at 5.55pm and Brest at 6.40pm.

This summer route isn't the only one offering vacation ideas, with other attractive destinations within easy reach of Finistère. There are plenty of opportunities to get away from it all this summer, including scheduled flights to Kerry in Ireland.

A seasonal service that boosts Brittany's airports

This new route, along with the other seasonal flights, has been positively received by Brittany's infrastructure. Indeed, as Alain Battisti, President of our Normandy-based airline, points out, the opening of routes to these destinations "will encourage tourist and family exchanges, and contribute to the region's economy".

Claude Arphexad, Director of Brest airport, commented: "We are delighted that Chalair is once again opening up access to Pau and the surrounding region, which will also enable us to welcome holidaymakers from the Neo-Aquitaine region.

For Jean-François Garrec, President of the CCI and Quimper airport, "the development of new air links from Quimper is our priority, so it is with great satisfaction that we welcome these two additional routes with Chalair".
