As a big fan and past user of Angers Airport this is BRILLIANT news!
Angers Airport is convenient, small with great parking and to keep younger members of the family amused before take-off, there is a museum next door.
Since January 2017, regular scheduled flights have ceased operating in and out of Angers airport, which now focuses mainly on business travel and private leisure aircraft. There are no longer air traffic controllers at Angers airport. However, a new commercial route between Angers and Bastia (Corsica) was started in summer 2017, with twice weekly flights during the summer months, operated by the Air France HOP airline.
