Lerm-et-Musset airport[edit]

At a public inquiry held in August 2009, a spokesman for the local department council announced plans for an international airport to be located approximately 2 km southeast of the town centre. To date, there has been no appeal submitted, and work on excavating the airport site is due to begin in early 2010.
