Rennes St. Jacques Airport will temporarily close its 2,100-metre-long runway 10/28 between March 2 and March 28 (inclusive) for "renovation and compliance work", according to a statement on the airport's website. While no flights will be available from the airport during that period, its terminal, including its shops and restaurants, will remain open.

According to the ch-aviation schedules module, the airport's biggest customer, with 69% of weekly capacity, is Air France (AF, Paris CDG) through its regional subsidiary HOP! (A5, Paris Orly). The Skyteam carrier's network from Rennes currently includes Amsterdam Schiphol (daily), Lyon St. Exupéry (16x weekly), Marseilles (daily), Nice (1x weekly), Paris CDG (3x daily), and Toulouse Blagnac (17x weekly).

The airport's second-largest serving airline is easyJet (U2, London Luton), which controls around 20% of weekly capacity. Other carriers serving the Brittany airport include flybe. (BE, Exeter), Vueling Airlines (VY, Barcelona El Prat), and Chalair Aviation (CE, Caen). The airport handled 825,000 passengers in 2019, down slightly on 2018 figures.

French airports that are in proximity to Rennes and could potentially solve some passenger's air travel needs during March include Dinard (63 kilometres away) and Nantes (102 kilometres away).
