Strasbourg Airport (French: Aéroport de Strasbourg; German: Straßburg Flughafen; Alsatian: D'r Strossburi(g) Flughàfa) (IATA: SXB, ICAO: LFST) is a minor international airport located in Entzheim and 10 km (6.2 miles) west-southwest of Strasbourg,[1] both communes of the Bas-Rhin département in the Alsace région of France. In 2018 the airport served 1,297,177 passengers.[3]

Decline in airport passenger traffic[edit]

There was a decline in traffic after Ryanair suspended service in 2004 after a court declared that the airline had received illegal subsidies from the airport.[4]

After the opening of the first phase of the new LGV Est high-speed rail line from Paris to Strasbourg, there was a significant[5] reduction in plane usage, but since 2011, traffic at the airport has grown. However, 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.[6] The opening of the second phase of the LGV Est in July 2016 further reduced travel time to Paris to 1:48 by train.[7]

The upper floor contains the international and domestic departure lounges and gates.[8] The terminal is equipped with four gates that have jet-bridges as well as some walk-boarding stands.
