Strasbourg Airport (French: Aéroport de Strasbourg) (IATA: SXBICAO: 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 2014 the airport served 1,167,612 passengers.[2]

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.[3]

After the opening of the first phase of the new LGV Est high-speed rail line from Paris to Strasbourg, there was a significant[4] 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.[5] The opening of the second phase of the LGV Est in July 2016 further reduced travel time to Paris to 1:48.[6]

Facilities[edit]

The airport consists of a single two-storey passenger terminal building. The ground floor features the check-in areas as well as the arrivals facilities with three baggage claim belts. The upper floor contains the international and domestic departure lounges and gates.[7] The terminal is equipped with four gates that have jet-bridges as well as some walk-boarding stands.
