Strasbourg International Airport (French: Aéroport International de Strasbourg) (IATA: SXBICAO: LFST) is an airport located in Entzheim and 10km (6.2 miles) west-southwest of Strasbourg,[1] both communes of the Bas-Rhin département in the Alsace région of France. The number of passengers for 2013 was listed at 1,181,149.[2]

Impact of the TGV[edit]

After the opening of the new LGV Est high-speed rail line from Paris to Strasbourg, there was a reduction in plane usage, but since 2011, traffic at the airport has grown.

Air France ceased to operate the route between Strasbourg and Paris-Charles de Gaulle on 2 April 2013, transferring passengers onto rail services operated as tgvair.[3]
