Driving in France

In recent years, travelling across to the continent and driving in France has become increasingly easy for Brits, but there are laws and regulations to bear in mind while driving abroad.

The Loire Valley has become even more accessible from the UK thanks to British Airways and their new route : London City Airport to Angers (49), Loire Valley, France.

Flights are available on Tuesday’s, Thursday’s & Saturday’s.  Commencing at £92 in June  (outbound), dropping to £68 (inbound) throughout September and October (prices taken from the British Airways website 06/06/12). 

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.

UPDATE:

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.
