Flights to Carcassonne airport France

carcassonne airportCarcassonne airport provides cheap flights to Languedoc and the South of France, mainly through Ryanair, but also with Iberia to Alicante and Atlas to Algeria. Carcassonne airport has grown enormously over the last 10 years, mainly thanks to its association with Ryanair. Carcassonne airport is actually quite small, but I enjoy flying out of Carcassonne for that very reason. You can be dropped and through to the departure gate in under an hour. Although they have recently upgraded the terminal at Carcassonne airport, don't expect lots of shops and restaurants.
