This summer, 24 partner airlines of the airport have reiterated their trust in the appeal of our regional market. From Italy to Turkey, not forgetting the Mediterranean islands, North Africa, and even Canada and Norway, travellers have plenty of choice when seeking to get away from it all.

“We are delighted to be reconnecting the region with the world, thanks to a comprehensive, diverse flight schedule. All the airlines partnering the airport still believe in the appeal of Bordeaux and indeed the entire region. Symbolising this recovery, Hall B will open on Sunday 27 March to launch the season, followed by the billi terminal once the season peaks. Airport staff will be pulling out all the stops to ensure the comfort and health safety of all passengers,” assured Simon Dreschel, CEO of Bordeaux Airport.
