On Friday (August 25, 2023), Emerald Airlines, the exclusive operator of the Aer Lingus Regional network, announced the launch of new service between Dublin and Rennes, providing a gateway to Paris for the Rugby World Cup. The limited flights will operate over six weeks from Friday September 22nd through Monday October 30, 2023, with one-way fares from €39 as part of a return fare. Flights will operate twice weekly on Mondays and Fridays. From Rennes, customers can travel directly to Paris Montparnasse station by train. Up to 15 daily trains will make the trip, which has an average travel time of approximately one hour and 45 minutes.

In Friday’s announcement, Emerald Airlines’ Head of Commercial, Ian Lough, said,

We are delighted to be providing fans with further access to a number of the exciting World Cup games hosted in Paris. We look forward to welcoming fans on board to cheer on their home team! We encourage passengers to book these highly-anticipated flights soon to avoid disappointment.”

The new route complements the carrier’s existing service between Dublin and Brest, Brittany, which commenced in May 2023. Brittany is also a great option for a fall getaway, with many unique festivals such as the Quai des Bulles Festival, which takes place the last weekend in October.
