U.K To Lorient, France. What Services?

Wed Jun 06, 2007 6:21 pm

According to the Lorient Airport website, there is a service out of Luton but I'll be stuffed if I can find it!!!

Any ideas???

Aer Arann of Ireland use to operate a London Luton to Lorient route. Not sure if it is still going!

RE flew LTN-LRT last year but with the closure of the LTN base earlier this year, LRT got the chop, along with IOM and NQY. GWY & WAT remain as routes from LTN, using GWY / WAT based A/C.

Shame really. I have no idea why they closed the base, maybe they found a better place for the ATR's elsewhere.

If you still need to get to Lorient, the Eurostar and TGV could be your best bet. Journey takes seven - eight hours, five or six times a day, from London via Paris (more like seven hours from November when the Eurostar goes full pelt from St. Pancras to the Chunnel). Fares from £49.50 each way in standard class, around £100 in leisure select (restricted business class) and around £200 for flexible business class; less for youths, seniors etc.

Hmmm, Eurostar is a option. My other alternative is there is daily FR service to Brest ex LTN (sounds alright!!) which is sort of in the same area where I want to go. Cheap enough, me and my daughter £120.00 return inc. taxes.
