There are a number of airports in the region serviced by the major airports in the UK, by the so called 'cut price' airways such as RyanAir and the better known companies such as British Airways and Air France.
If you happen to live near Stanstead Airport, RyanAir provides a very affordable route in to either Poitier, La Rochelle or Limoges. For example, travelling at the end of May 2003 (Wednesday to Wednesday) we could have picked up two return tickets to Limoges for the great price of £76.80.
British Airways have a scheduled flight from Gatwick to Nantes which can usually be booked for around £90 per head, and you get a meal and complimentory drink during the flight.
