LGW replacing Jet2 who are quitting the route. The Q400 seems the perfect a/c for the route.
ABZ 6 x weekly
Rennes 1 x weekly


When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

Nice one!! This is great news. Not sure how T3 will fair on the ABZ route. But I think the Q400 is ideal also. 737 seems a little too big to run it profitibly. Shame it is only one new destination from NCL though.

I get the feeling LGW-NCL is sadly doomed. No one seems to be able to make the route work, although maybe BE, with the Q400 have a better chance, as it's smaller than the 733 of LS. It'd be sad to see it go if it did finally die a death.

What is with all these flights to Rennes ? It's a pokey Breton backwater. BE need to fly to NCE more - twice a week sucks.

Im glad to see the back of Jet2 on the NCL-LGW route. Their lowest fares were higher than BA's lead-in!
I think BE can make it work with the smaller aircraft. it also means that I get to try out a new aircraft on my way to LGW..... Wahey!

Why are they flying to Rennes ??? This is an ugly city lost in the middle of nowhere (Brittany).

T3 target the business passengers mostly and provide a much higher frequency for day trips and if BE are only operating 1 daily flight then I can't see it being too much compeition for T3.

Rennes is a good place for BE because it is in a good place for people going to Brittany and Western Normandy. It has a large amount of tourists and many people who have 2nd homes, plus it is so much closer to the UK, therefore the amount of time lost due to lower speed (lower than jets) doesn't impede too much on sector times, therefore stopping problems with planes operating longer flights for the same profit as shorter ones, therefore more money can be made on 2 shorter ones than a long one.
