New UK service for Brive Dordogne Valley airport

Brive Dordogne Valley airport announces new route to Manchester for 2011

From May next year, a new airline route will be opened up between Brive Dordogne Valley and Manchester airports.

Serviced by low-cost airline Jet2, the flights will run on Tuesdays and Saturdays between 21 May and 24 September 2011.

The announcement, from president of the Syndicat Mixte of Brive Dordogne Valley airport, Jean-Louis Nesti, follows the success of CityJet routes between London City airport and its French counterpart, which have “far exceeded expectations”.

The flights will be serviced by Boeing 737 airplanes, which seat 148 passengers, and the airport is considering more destinations, including Dublin, though nothing is yet confirmed.

Brive Dordogne Valley airport finally opened in June this year amid much fanfare due to its location at the heart of an area that is hugely popular among Britons.
