Airports

The Nice Côte d'Azur airport, a major gateway to Southern Europe, is France’s second largest airport. It runs direct flights to 90 destinations and plays host to nearly 50 different airlines.
The Cannes-Mandelieu airport is dedicated to tourism and business aviation.
The region's economic and touristic vitality has made Cannes-Mandelieu the number two business aviation airport after Paris-Le Bourget.
Located five minutes from downtown Cannes and the Palais des Festivals, it is the airport of choice for directly linking the city to major European cities.
