Strasbourg International Airport (French: Aéroport International de Strasbourg) (IATA: SXBICAO: LFST) is an 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]


After the opening of the new LGV Est high-speed rail line from Paris to Strasbourg, there was a significant [3] reduction in plane usage, but since 2011, traffic at the airport has grown. However, by 2016 the time needed by rail between Paris and Strasbourg will be further reduced down to 1:48 as the second phase of the high-speed line will be inaugurated.[4]

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]

Other airlines[edit]

The Lufthansa Airport bus provides service between Strasbourg and Frankfurt Airport, which has service to many airports.[6]

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.[7]
