Brest Airport Mini Guide

Brest Airport

Getting There
The airport is very well signposted and located off the N12/E50 just 20 minutes outside of the city centre making it easy to find if driving. There is a shuttle bus available from Brest city centre, stopping at the tourist office it also runs from the train station making it a convenient connection for those travelling by rail. Further information and timetables can be found online. Taxi services are also available and there is a taxi rank right in front of the airport. If you're travelling in from the UK there are many flights with low cost carriers and the flight time is minimal. Make sure you pre-book car hire with us just after booking your flight. That way you'll soon be away from the airport and enjoying the Breton countryside.   

If you’d like to sample some local Breton cuisine the L'Oiseau Blanc has an excellent selection of traditional Breton fare. Fans of fine dining should be more than satisfied at the Terre et Mer restaurant which offers perfect steaks and fresh seasonal produce. Plane spotters should fill up at the Bagad Café, a contemporary venue that offers amazing views of the runway. If you’re feeling thirsty or would just like a snack, check out the St. Laurent Bar, which also does a perfect crepe.

Shopping Opportunities
For all your last minute gifts and traditional Breton products a visit to the Passerelle boutique is definitely worthwhile as is L’Escale which also sells clothing from the Armor Lux line and if you’ve lost your suitcase don’t panic, a visit to Terre d’Armor clothing boutique on the ground floor will make you almost happy for the excuse. Duty free is available but only for passengers travelling outside of the Eurozone.

That Little Extra
For meetings on the move or just to keep in touch with the office, a business centre is available with a full range of office necessities and conference rooms that can host meetings of up to 60 people and if for some bizarre reason you’ve gone to the airport and haven’t decided where to go yet there is also a travel agency onsite.

Read our Frequently Asked Questions

Brest Airport is alternatively known as Brest Bretagne Airport or the Brest Guipavas Airport. It serves this seafaring city which has an important naval history. That makes it ideal for those who want an engaging holiday by the sea. Swimmers at Brest should beware though of large coastal tides.

The latter name of the airport came about as it was located in the commune of Guipavas within the département of Finistère. Most flights at Brest Airport are regional flights with Air France but there are also services to the UK and Ireland with Flybe and Ryanair.
