Flybe has begun operating a seasonal route to Rennes (RNS) from London City (LCY) six times weekly (excluding Saturdays).
The flights will take off from LCY at 15:40, landing in RNS at 18:05, before the return leg leaves RNS at 18:50 to reach LCY at 19:15. The service will continue until 4 September 2016.
Vincent Hodder, Flybe’s chief revenue officer, commented, “We are delighted at the positive response to our new route from London City to Rennes. Londoners can take advantage of this convenient connection that saves them time and money by operating from the very heart of the city.”
“Flybe’s new service to Rennes offers the only direct flight from a London airport to the charming capital of Brittany, and is a great addition to London City Airport’s offering of French destinations,” added Matthew Hall, London City Airport’s CCO. “Our passengers can expect a warm welcome in Rennes, a city full of both culture and business opportunities, including a thriving university and growing hi-tech sector. It’s now possible to reach all of this within a couple of hours of central London, including a check-in time of 20 minutes or less.”
