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.

Facilities[edit]

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]
