Finding your way around Nice Airport

If you have decided to visit the South of France, then Nice is surely among the places you want to visit. This beautiful city will leave an unforgettable mark on you and it will bewitch you with its magic ambiance and color scheme. Furthermore, you will never have the chance to get bored in Nice, since there are a lot of things to do and places to see both in the city and around it.

Most likely, the first “acquaintance” you will make in Nice will be its airport. The Nice Côte d’Azur Airport covers an area of about 3.7 square km (or 1.43 square miles) and it can theoretically support 52 movements (or 26 landings), all of these features making it the third largest airport in France (while both of the first two ones are in Paris). The airport is situated at less than 6 km from the city (or 3.7 miles) and because it is very close to Monaco, it is the city-states own airport as well. From its two terminals, airplanes leave for destinations in the entire Europe (and not only, since it also features Transatlantic destinations such as Montreal).


The history of the airport is strongly related to the beginnings of the French aviation. The first airshow in Nice took place in 1910 and 8 years later postal flights between Corsica and Nice started to be used. The actual airport was officially born two years later, in 1920. However, up until the end of the World War II, there weren’t any major improvements made to the airport and it was only then that passenger flights started to appear. The ascension of the airport rapidly move towards a new era and by 1950, there were already several hundreds of thousands of passengers who had stepped on the soil of the Nice airport.

On both terminals, you will be able to find all that you need, from eating facilities to Internet kiosks and from shops to a post office. All these facilities have been created to make your stay in the airport, no matter how long or small, as enjoyable as possible.
