Brest Airport serves the West Brittany region and Brittany as a whole. Brest is right on the north-west tip of France, looking out towards the Atlantic. Its obvious that the city should be steeped in maritime history. Hugely popular museums such as Oceanopolis, tell the tale of marine science and oceanography, and its quite fitting that one of Europes most popular marine life museums should be in Brest. Brittany has a beautifully rugged coastline, and car hire at Brest Airport is particularly popular for those wishing to explore the north-west peninsula. Hiring a car is available at the airport or in the city itself.
