Eastern Airways is to operate a special series of flights on selected dates in summer 2015 from Southampton Airport to Lorient in Brittany, France.
The flights are set to run on Friday 10 July, Monday 13 July, Friday 7 August, Monday 10 August, Friday 14 August and Monday 17 August 2015. On Fridays, flights will depart Southampton at 12:05 and arrive in Lorient at 14:20. Services will leave Lorient at 11:20 and arrive in Southampton at 11:35 local time. Monday flights take off from Southampton at 15:05 and land in Lorient at 17:20. From Lorient, flights push back at 14:20 and arrive in Southampton at 14:35. All times are local.
Jan Halliday, Southampton Airport’s director of marketing & communications, commented, “Our new summer service to Lorient perfectly complements our portfolio of fantastic destinations in regional France. The flights will operate on selected dates and it’s one of the quickest ways to get to this totally unspoilt part of the Morbihan region. The airport is just 8 km from the city centre, making it a great base from which to explore the coast.”
All departing Eastern Airways passengers benefit from a Fast track security channel at Southampton to avoid any queues at security search. Customers are offered complimentary drinks and snacks on board the aircraft and there is no charge for check-in, baggage or choice of seat.
