By plane

Nice Côte d’Azur Airport is the second largest airport in France after Paris with 14.5 million passengers per year (2019 figures), more than 120 direct destinations without charter operated by 60 companies to 44 countries. The airport offers 6 regular long-haul routes to Bahrain, Doha, Dubai, Montreal, New York and Beijing.

Its unique location ensures that passengers can make a spectacular landing along the Côte d’Azur coastline with a breathtaking view of the seaside, the snow-capped mountains in winter, and the cities lit up at night.

Nice Côte d’Azur Airport is only 15 minutes from the centre of Nice and now has a direct tramway link to the city centre. Regular bus and train links provide easy access to the other communes of the Nice Côte d’Azur.

Nice Côte d’Azur Airport is also the 3rd largest business aviation airport in the world.
