Brussels Airlines connects Nantes to Brussels

From 14 June onwards, Brussels Airlines flies 12 times a week between Nantes and Brussels Airport. With Nantes, Brussels Airlines adds the Pays de la Loire area to its growing network of flights, which is an attractive region both economically as for tourists. Flights can be booked from today onwards.

Brussels Airlines continues its network growth. After previously announcing that it would be adding Toronto, Nuremberg, Belfast, Thessaloniki, Heraklion and Jerez de la Frontera to its expanding flight offer this spring, Brussels Airlines announces today a new connection between Nantes and Brussels Airport.

From June 14 onwards, Nantes will be served twice a day (morning and evening flight) on weekdays. The flight schedule during weekdays even allows day trips to Brussels. On Saturdays and Sundays the schedule includes one flight per day. The flights are operated by Embraer 145 Regional Jets. Return tickets are available from 69 euros with all taxes included.


































“With Nantes, the sixth largest city and an important economic centre in France, Brussels Airlines is continuing its efforts to link the main French regions with the European capital. Not only do we offer flights from and to Nantes but via Brussels Airport, passengers can easily travel towards dozens of destinations throughout Europe, Africa and the United States. The schedule was especially designed to allow smooth connections.”

-- Thadee Nawrocki, Brussels Airlines country manager France. 

Nantes is located at the estuary of the Loire and together with the nearby St Nazaire it is better known as the naval heart of shipbuilding. But the aviation industry is also strongly represented, with manufacturer Airbus as well as numerous well-known food companies, of which the headquarters are located in the region. Nantes also rapidly develops itself as an IT hub.

Nantes also attracts many tourists. The most famous resident of Nantes was undoubtedly writer Jules Verne. Definitely worth a visit is the museum named after him, where the futuristic ‘Machines de l’Ile’ bring the dreams of Jules Verne to life. Discovering the medieval past is possible in the imposing castle of the Dukes of Brittany, lovers of Gothic and Renaissance will love visiting the stately cathedral, shoppers will be delighted with the historic ‘Passage Pommeraye’ gallery and the beautiful botanical gardens await everyone who loves nature. The region is also home to the Puy-du-Fou historical theme parc.

Including new destination Nantes, Brussels Airlines serves 13 French destinations next summer, including three on the island of Corsica.
