You can arrive directly in Nantes international Airport or through one of the 3 airports of Paris, CHARELES DE GAULLE, ORLY or BEAUVAIS. It is thus easy to make a stopover in PARIS on the way to Nantes.
Nantes’s airport is international. Some direct flights are operated from most of the largest European cities and from North America (New York, Montreal etc). Most of these flights are operated by low cost companies and you can find more information on the website of the airport (https://www.nantes.aeroport.fr/en/homepage
In case of arrival in Paris, two main airports can be considered either Charles De Gaulle (most common) or Orly. High speed “TGV” trains are operated every day from these airport either directly at Charles de Gaulle (~4 every day) or from MASSY train station from ORLY airport (ORLYVAL rapid shuttle from airport to train station). You may also take the metro (RER C) from Charles De Gaulle airport to downtown Paris and then take a train at MONTPARNASSE train station (metro station Montparnasse) where train leave to Nantes every 1 to 2 hours. It is thus easy to organize a stopover in Paris over your day of arrival or for a longer duration.
