Perpignan Airport Facilities
While Perpignan airport is quite small, it is larger than Avignon airport, which makes it a prime gateway to this historic and beautiful region of France. There are two runways that are able to serve up to 700,000 passengers per year.
The airport is easily accessible from the cities of Narbonne and Nimes and it is only a short distance north of the border with Spain. This location makes it the perfect place from which to access the Languedoc region of France. The city of Perpignan offers easy access to Paris and other important business and cultural centres in the country.
Many of the airlines that operate from this airport provide services to other regions of France, in particular other locations in the Languedoc region. However, it is also a hub for flights that connect France with the United Kingdom. Popular destinations for departures from the Perpignan Airport are Glasgow, Bristol, Manchester, Southampton, Isle of Man, Edinburgh and Stansted.
Although the Perpignan airport is one of the smallest in France, it is also one of the busiest and many passengers pass through the terminal each year. Anyone waiting to greet a passenger who has just landed at the airport can do so easily, because the terminal is so small and during the summer months, it is not uncommon to find people waiting outside in the sunshine for arriving passengers.
There are a number of Perpignan Airport hotels that provide accommodation for all budgets and tastes.
