If you are traveling from a different city, or outside of the high season, you will need to connect through another European airport. Popular routes to the Bordeaux Airport include flying through Paris with Air France and Amsterdam with KLM. Alternately, consider booking a multi-city flight that allows you to fly into Bordeaux Airport and out of another French Airport, like Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport or the Marseilles Airport.

What to Expect When Arriving at the Bordeaux Airport
The Bordeaux Airport has two distinct buildings. Hall A and Hall B share space in the main terminal, and most major international airlines land here. A smaller building, known as Terminal billi, mainly serves budget airlines. The arrivals area has a currency exchange office, ATMs, tourist information and several rental car providers. Although car rental is the ideal way to explore the vineyards outside of the town, those who prefer to let someone else handle the transportation can reach the city center using one of the express buses that depart every forty-five minutes, on the regular public bus that departs from outside the arrivals hall, or by taxi.
