Bordeaux–Mérignac Airport (French: Aéroport de Bordeaux-Mérignac) (IATA: BOD, ICAO: LFBD) is the international airport of Bordeaux, in south-western France. It is situated in the commune of Mérignac, 12 km (7.5 mi) west of Bordeaux, within the département of the Gironde. In 2015, the airport served 5,289,638 passengers, making it the sixth busiest airport in France in terms of passengers. It mainly features flights to metropolitan and leisure destinations in Europe and Northern Africa and serves as a base for Volotea.
As a consequence of the temporary closure of the Cazaux Air Base, the civil authorities have been forced to share the runway with the French Air Force since November 2005.
Bordeaux Airport features two passenger buildings:
- Hall A and Hall B are both part of the connected two-storey main building. The arrivals level is located on the ground floor while the check-in and departure areas are on the upper floor.
- Terminal billi is a designated separate facility for low cost carriers. It only consists of one floor and features small check-in and arrivals areas as well as a departures area equipped with six aircraft parking positions which are used by walk boarding. The main users of Terminal billi are easyJet and Ryanair.
