Published on

107 direct flights this winter is just one of the many reasons to discover the world from Bordeaux.

With the autumn holidays recently over, the winter high season has now begun at Bordeaux Airport. The choice from 107 direct flights this winter is just one of the many reasons to discover the world from Bordeaux. Offering routes to no fewer than 23 countries, 4 more than last year, Bordeaux confirms its largely international status with more than 60% of its traffic to and from destinations overseas. The number of flights is set to increase this winter with the introduction of 9 new routes and 22 extensions of routes from this summer. From Bordeaux, those in Nouvelle-Aquitaine can escape for a short break in Morocco or Tunisia, a cultural city break in Moscow, Budapest or Prague, or a sunny break in the Canary Islands or Israel.

Finally, Ryanair is adding to its winter connections between Bordeaux and the northern half of France by opening two direct routes to Lille(3) (daily flight) and Strasbourg(3) (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday).
