Céleste is a French regional airline due to launch in Brittany in 2022. The airline applied for its Air Operators Certificate in August 2021 with the intention of offering private or public air transport. However, as the airline is still in the early stages of planning information about the airline is limited. It is known that the airline will operate from Morlaix-Ploujean airport on the west coast of France with a plan of capturing the market left by the Air France subsidiary, HOP! departure from the area.
As of December 2021, Céleste hasn't yet determined its route network. However, it is known that the airline will serve Morlaix commune in Brittany.
As the airline is still in its infancy it is unsure what its cabin baggage policy might be. However, it is expected that you will be allowed to bring a small personal item such as a handbag, camera bag, briefcase or small backpack.
The airline additionally is yet to publish its checked luggage policy, so it is unsure if this will be included in the ticket or whether it will be an additional charge.
Céleste hasn't yet launched a website or reservations platform so it is unsure if online check-in will be available. However, it is hoped nearer the airlines launch more information will be established.
It is anticipated that Céleste will offer airport check-in facilities, the level of the facilities is unknown. However, it is likely that the airline will have check-in desks for you to use at their airports. The airline is yet to state the opening and closing times for their check-in facilities.
Although Céleste hasn't established its fleet or provided information regarding its cabin classes, it is likely that they will offer economy onboard.
As the airline hasn't launched yet it is unsure whether they will offer a business class product. However, as the fleet and route map is likely to be regional a business class product is not likely.
Céleste will operate short domestic services from Brittany so it is unlikely inflight entertainment including wifi will be provided. The airline may offer an inflight magazine for you to read, but we recommend you bring your own entertainment for the flight.
It is unsure if the airline will offer complimentary drinks and snacks. However, as the airline will be a new regional airline this is not expected. The airline could offer this or a buy onboard service, however, this is unknown.
Céleste hasn't yet published their intentions for a frequent flyer program, however, it is expected to not offer one.
As the airline is still planning for the launch, it is still yet to determine which aircraft type they may operate. However, as the airport and airline will both be regional it may be expected that they select a regional turboprop aircraft such as the Bombardier Dash 8, ATR 72 models or an Embraer 170. However, closer to the launch more information will be provided on the airlines fleet.
