Blue Islands has announced the launch of a new twice weekly service from Jersey to Rennes which will commence on 20 June for an initial 12-week period.
Flights will operate on Monday and Friday afternoons, and it is also possible to fly from Guernsey with a short connection in Jersey. Blue Islands will continually review demand, adding additional flights if required.
Located in the Brittany region of France, Rennes Airport provides easy access to the surrounding area with a flight time of just 40 minutes.
Rob Veron, Chief Executive of Blue Islands, said the new route is a great addition to the Channel Island’s travel options.
“As well as being a wonderful city to discover, with car hire, bus and TGV connections, Rennes is an ideal gateway to France."

Matt Thomas, CEO for Ports of Jersey, also welcomed the news saying “building connectivity into Europe is a tremendous opportunity for the Island. We are thrilled that a direct air link to Rennes has been announced today.
“We would like to thank Blue Islands, the team at Rennes Airport and the Chambers for their support. Now we all need to get behind this service to ensure it’s a success and continues beyond the initial 12-week summer schedule."
Flights to Rennes are available to book now.
