Bordeaux Airport has revealed its 2018 winter timetable, which features six new flights including four brand new destinations.
For passengers looking to escape for some winter sun, easyJet will be serving Essaouira in Morocco (twice weekly) as well as Manchester in the UK (twice weekly). Meanwhile Ryanair, which is opening a new base at Bordeaux Airport in April 2019, will be offering flights to Valencia in Spain (twice weekly), as well as Fez and Marrakesh both in Morocco. The link to Fez will be in addition to Air Arabia’s service from Bordeaux, while Ryanair’s flights to Marrakesh will complement the French airport’s existing services to the Moroccan capital with Royal Air Maroc, easyJet and TUIfly.
Several airlines have also increased the frequency of existing flights from Bordeaux for the winter season. Aegean Airlines will now operate four flights to Athens over the Christmas holidays, while Aer Lingus has added a fourth weekly rotation on its Dublin route. Similarly, easyJet has increased the number of weekly rotations to Lille, Marseille, Nice, Basel and Luton in comparison with the previous winter period and Volotea is extending the season for Palma and Malta and is now operating its second daily flights to Strasbourg from the French hub. Vueling is also adding extra rotations to Malaga for the festive period and now flies to Barcelona daily.
Commenting on its busy winter schedule, Pascal Personne, chairman of Bordeaux Airport’s Executive Board said: “The autumn and winter offering provides some great opportunities to fly to the sun in less than three hours, thanks to a wide choice of direct flights.”
The airport has also enhanced its parking facilities with a new entrance to its P2 Flexi car park allowing for smoother, faster access to the airport itself. “The car park now features a number plate recognition system, so that travellers who use the online car park booking service can get to the airport more easily. In addition, the car park has just been equipped with electric vehicle charging stations, which are available to users free of charge,” added Personne.
