Luton Airport connects to Rheims

London Luton Airport has announced a partnership with Air Turquoise, which will commence direct daily flights to Rheims, in the heart of the French Champagne region, on 28 March. With the start of the new service, passengers will for the first time be able to fly straight from London to the heart of one the most famous – but arguably under-explored – areas of France. Flights will depart London Luton at 2.20pm daily, landing 1 hour and 20 minutes later at Aeroport Reims Champagne, conveniently situated just three miles north of the city. Rheims is only 90 minutes east of Paris by road and one hour from Disneyland Paris. London Luton Airport managing director Kathryn James said: “This is quite literally a new departure for us and we welcome the opportunity Air Turquoise brings to travellers, opening up one of France's most beautiful and interesting areas. Until now the Rheims Champagne region could only be reached by a very time-consuming and laborious car ferry or train journey.” Launched in June 2005, Air Turquoise has already carried over 20,000 passengers on its network from Rheims, which currently includes daily flights to Nice, Bordeaux and Marseilles - and Toulouse from 4 April.
