The airport in Nice is called the Nice Côte d’Azur Airport. It is the second busiest airport in France after Paris with almost 15 million passengers annually. Airlines connect Nice with over 114 destinations in 40 countries. The Nice Côte d’Azur Airport is also the only airport available to the entire Riviera region. However, with how fantastic the Cote d’Azur transport networks are, getting anywhere along the coast couldn’t be easier!
Booking flights to Nice is never too much of a hassle. However, it’s important to be aware that not every airport has a direct flight to the south of France, and that your airport options can be limited depending on which airline you plan of flying with.
For example, Ryanair is a personal favourite for all us travellers hoping to save a little extra cash on our plane tickets. And while Ryanair certainly has the most affordable prices around, their flights to Nice only go from Dublin, Stuttgart and London Stansted. So, if you’re within reach of any of these three airports then great! If not, you’ll unfortunately have to try with a different airline.
EasyJet is another rather popular airline amongst frequent travellers. Not quite as cheap as Ryanair, however, they do provide flights to Nice from over 45 different international airports. So, you certainly don’t have to worry about being limited to your options.
