Brest Bretagne Airport (French: Aéroport de Brest Bretagne) (IATA: BES, ICAO: LFRB), formerly known as Brest Guipavas Airport, is an international airport serving Brest, France. It is located in the commune of Guipavas and 10.2 km (6.4 miles) northeast of Brest, within the département of Finistère.
Though the main operator is Air France (and subsidiariy HOP!), serving for the most part Paris, other scheduled services are offered elsewhere in France and to the United Kingdom. The aggressive efforts the Chamber of Commerce conducted allowed the airport to grow dramatically over the past decade thanks to charter airlines, as can be seen below.
In the summer of 2011, long-due replacement of the ILS all-weather landing system caused numerous aborted landings/re-routing of passenger jets when foggy conditions occurred, affecting all companies operating to/from this airport.
