As summer approaches, travelers seeking a taste of the French countryside will have a new opportunity to explore the picturesque region of Brittany. Blue Islands, the leading airline serving the Channel Islands, is set to extend its air link between Jersey and Rennes, France, providing greater convenience and choice for travelers. This expansion comes as part of the airline’s commitment to keeping Jersey connected with the world.
Enhanced Service Details
The Rennes service, initially launched last summer to great acclaim, will now operate up to three times a week between June and September, starting on the 23rd of June. This extended schedule includes flights on Mondays and Fridays throughout the entire period, with the addition of Wednesday flights from the 26th of July to the 30th of August.
Rob Veron, Blue Islands Chief Executive, Excited About the Expansion
Rob Veron, the Chief Executive of Blue Islands, expressed his enthusiasm for the expanded service, saying, “Our focus is keeping Jersey connected, and we are excited to be providing direct links to France again this year with more flights added for greater choice and convenience as we look to sustainably build on last year’s program.”
Mr. Veron also highlighted the benefits of traveling to Rennes, stating, “Rennes is a beautiful city that’s just a 40-minute flight from Jersey, and boasts excellent car hire, bus, and train connections, meaning it’s also the perfect gateway to the idyllic region of Brittany and destinations throughout France.”
Exploring the Beauty of Rennes and Beyond
Rennes, the capital of Brittany, is a city steeped in history and culture. Visitors can wander through its charming old town, with its half-timbered houses and narrow streets, or explore its impressive historical landmarks, such as the Rennes Cathedral and the Parliament of Brittany building.
