Brest Bretagne Airport is a useful gateway to the scenic north-west coast of France and the region of Brittany. This is a small regional airport with a café, bar/brasserie and restaurant. Arrivals and departures are fast and hassle-free. Brest has not been a priority with low-cost airlines due to competition from ferry services and Eurostar train services from southern England. 2012 sees indirect flights from London City airport with Air France and a seasonal summer service from Southampton with flybe. Routes are almost always indirect. Airlines offering reasonably priced indirect flights include flybe, KLM and Air France.
