Bordeaux–Mérignac Airport (French: Aéroport de Bordeaux-Mérignac) (IATA: BODICAO: 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,[2] within the département of the Gironde. In 2017, the airport served 6,203,824 passengers, making it the sixth-busiest airport in France in terms of passengers.[3]

It mainly features flights to metropolitan and leisure destinations in Europe and Northern Africa and serves as a base for Volotea. Transatlantic service is operated on a seasonal basis by XL Airways France nonstop to Fort-de-France in the Caribbean and by Air Transat nonstop to Montreal, Quebec in Canada.

History[edit]

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.

Terminals[edit]

Bordeaux Airport features three passenger buildings:

  • Terminal A mainly for international flights [4]
  • Terminal B The passenger air terminal features two levels and is principally dedicated to Air France traffic between Paris and Bordeaux.[5]
