Brive–Souillac Airport ((IATA: BVEICAO: LFSL), also Brive–Dordogne Valley Airport (French: Aéroport de Brive – Vallée de la Dordogne)) is an international airport located 13 kilometres (7.0 NM) south of Brive-la-Gaillarde,[1] a commune of the Corrèze department in the Limousin region of France.

History[edit]

The airport replaces the older Brive–La Roche Airport. The official inauguration was on June 15, 2010. Its ICAO code LFSL was previously assigned to the military Toul-Rosières Air Base which closed in 2004.

The Airlinair (HOP! nowadays) flights to and from Paris–Orly airport were transferred to this airport. CityJet operated a seasonal route to London City Airport from June 25 to September 13, 2010. Due to good results, the service was extended until October 31, 2010.

The airport resides at an elevation of 1,016 feet (310 m) above mean sea level. It has one paved runway designated 11/29 which measures 2,100 by 45 metres (6,890 ft × 148 ft). It also has a parallel unpaved runway with a grass surface measuring 1,000 by 80 metres (3,281 ft × 262 ft).[1]
