Toulouse – Lasbordes Airport (French: Aéroport de Toulouse - Lasbordes) (ICAO: LFCL) is a small non-commercial airport in the commune of Balma, situated 4 km (2 miles) east of the city center of Toulouse,[1] both located in the Haute-Garonne department of the Midi-Pyrénées region in southwest France.


The airport resides at an elevation of 460 feet (140 m) above mean sea level. It has a 950 m × 23 m (3,117 ft × 75 ft) asphalt runway for light airplanes and a 350 m × 20 m (1,148 ft × 66 ft) grass strip for microlights. The runways are located very close to the large highway surrounding Toulouse.[1]

From the air, the airport is easily found by looking for a large upright Ariane space rocket located in Cité de l'espace (Space Museum) on the opposite side of the motorway.
