Air Wales flights from England, Wales, Channel Islands and Ireland to Brittany

Only a few weeks ago I was writing about Aer Arran's low cost flights to Brittany, now I've found about another low cost provider, Air Wales, that's started small and has now expanded with four new routes to Rennes.

Rennes is the regional capital and largest town in Brittany with lots of things to see and do such as the medieval cathedral quarter, a number of elegant 16th-18th century buildings including the Brittany parliment building, several museums, an enourmous Saturday street market, or you can take 'le Val' (a driverless metro) to the innovative 'Rennes Atalante' zone for a tour of the Citroen factory. It's well worth spending a day or two exploring the town and it's just under an hour's drive away from our Brittany Holiday Gite.

Air Wales
Air Wales are starting flights to Rennes from Cardiff, Manchester, Jersey and Waterford so are (to my knowledge) the only low cost airline flying to Brittany from the Channel Islands and from North West England. Maybe we'll get some guests from these areas that'll let me know how good the service is - the prices are keen with one-way flights from £19.99.
