Brest Bretagne Airport ( ) , formerly known as Brest Guipavas Airport, is an airport serving the French city of Brest. It is located in the commune of Guipavas and 10.2km (6.4 miles) northeast of Brest, within the département of Finistère.

Though the main operator is Air France (and subsidiaries Brit Air and Regional), serving for the most part Paris and Lyon, other scheduled services are offered to Ireland and the UK, noticeably by Ryanair and Flybe. 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 summer of 2011, long-due replacement of the ILS all-weather landing system causes numerous aborted landings/re-routing of passenger jets when foggy conditions occur, affecting all companies operating to/from this airport.
