Nice Airport

Nice Airport is the reference point for all passengers heading to the French Riviera. It is located about 6 kilometers from the French city.

Nice Airport was the first example of a zero impact airport. From 2020 the program is active to bring CO2 EMISSIONS to ZERO by 2030, also minimizing the emissions of most of the planes that land! A truly commendable initiative considering that airplanes are the most polluting means of transport!

The airport has two terminals. Inside, there are numerous boutiques and shopping areas, as well as bars, restaurants and dining options. The Wi-Fi line is available free of charge throughout the area.

Before the Pandemic, about 14 million passengers passed through here in a single year, making it, in fact, one of the busiest airports in the South of the country and in all of France.
