Travelling To Dijon, France From HAJ

I very likely will have to travel to Dijon, France on business in the next months for a about a week each time.
My starting point is HAJ (Hannover, Germany) and sofar my searches have not revealed any suitable airport in the relative vicinity of Dijon (DIJ).

Approx. distances by road:
HAJ: 850 km
LYS: 200 km (no nonstop flights)
BSL: 230 km (no nonstop flights)
CDG/ORY: 360 km
STR: 450 km

Seeing that there are no non-stops out of HAJ to LYS or BSL, a transfer would add considerable travel time.
Best available alternative departure point would be BRE, but this does not get closer me to DIJ either. Having to travel to HAM would add another 2+ hours to the total travel time.

Any suggestions ?
Please keep in mind, that I probably will travel with at least 2 suitcases, so hauling these onto local trains and then onto a TGV out of Paris is no good option.

Am I missing any airport around Dijon with scheduled service ? Even flights into ORY would do for me, as I could build an itinerary with X3 out of HAJ ...

P.S. I even had a look into FR´s network, but there is a big (!) blank spot around DIJ.

Tnx,
-HT

Yes, there's a big hole in that part of france for air travel. Probably too close on the tgv to Paris and Lyon. Dijon seems to only have charter flights to various places at the moment.

Least painful for you could be to fly to Zurich then get the train from zurich airport, via lausanne to Dijon. Swiss train to Lausanne then TGV to Dijon

Alternatively there are some direct trains from Zurich main station to Dijon.

Got to www.tgv.fr to look at schedules.

Example

HAJ to ZRH with LX Avro 100 at 7am daily, arr ZRH 08:20.

ZRH airport 10:13 dep
Lausanne 12:40 arr
Change train.
Lausanne 13:22 dep
Dijon 15:21 arr

Thanks for the suggestion.
But still this itinerary takes up a complete business day  Sad
I will need to see what my actual schedule of appointments will be and anyhow will factor in 2 complete days to get there and back. With those facts chances are that I will be able to get a rental car from my employer plus a paid-for weekend in the vicinity of Dijon - and being able to sample & take home some famous mustard  Wink
