The Airport

Destination French Riviera

Quality services

Cannes Mandelieu, the 2nd most important general aviation airport in France, is a dynamic platform that is highly attentive to customer needs and offers every convenience: high safety standards, rapid passenger handling, free parking in the immediate vicinity of the terminal, tailored services, and a polished welcome that is both friendy and professional.

A sunny climate, the beauty of the scenery set between the sea and the mountains, the luxury hotels and festivals, the Sophia Antipolis science park and a strategic geographical position in the Mediterranean basin… these are the assets that make the Côte d’Azur a key destination for both business travellers and those who simply want to enjoy its wonderful living conditions.

Nestled between the Estérel massif, the bay of Cannes and the Grasse region, Cannes Mandelieu Airport offers an exceptional gateway to the mythical French Riviera, from Saint-Tropez to the Principality of Monaco.
Complementing Nice Côte d’Azur Airport, more specifically dedicated to regular commercial flights, Cannes Mandelieu Airport focuses more on general tourist and business aviation.

Three main functions:

  • receiving tourist and business aviation
  • receiving emergency, forest surveillance and fire-fighting missions
  • developing theoretical and practical teaching and training courses for the air transport professions.
