Here is a short list of France’s busiest airports when it’s time to say “au revoir.”

  • Paris. The capital city of France has two airports, Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG) and Paris Orly (ORY). They are also the two busiest airports in the country, with CDG handling almost twice as much traffic as its counterpart. Both airports host flag carriers and low-cost airlines alike, with more flights leaving from the much larger Charles De Gaulle.
  • Nice. More than 11 million travelers move through Nice Côte d'Azur Airport (NCE) annually, making it the busiest airport in France outside of Paris. A popular tourist destination in the south of France, tourists and locals alike flock to the scenic coastlines and Roman ruins. If you’re visiting Monaco, you’ll be using this airport.
  • Lyon. Lyon–Saint Exupéry Airport (LYS) serves the communities of eastern France and the province of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, which borders Switzerland and Italy. Flights from here go to international and regional destinations, mostly care of Europe’s notoriously low cost carriers.
  • All of the above airports are closely connected to local and long-distance ground transportation. An important part of that is the high speed rail system you’ve heard about. Virtually every major city in France has an express or high speed train that connects downtown directly with the airport. For Nice, that includes seafaring connections from the coast via the Mediterranean.

    France is popular enough to host virtually every airline in the world in the capital city alone.

    • Air Canada. You can find Canada’s friendly neighborhood flag carrier at all of the above airports with the exception of Orly. You can fly direct to Montreal or Vancouver or non-stop to Toronto. Flights from Nice to Montreal are seasonal and operated by Air Canada Rouge.
