Airports in Languedoc Roussillon

marseille airportWhen we began Go Languedoc 9 years ago, I would say that around 50% of our customers took the long drive down from Ireland and the UK. Now it is less than 20%. We did have some Norwegian guests last year who drove down from Oslo, but they vowed never to do it again! With Flybe, Ryanair and Easyjet still offering great deals on cheap flights to Languedoc airports, now is the time to plan your next holiday in Languedoc Roussillon. There are 6 low cost airports in Languedoc Roussillon which provide cheap flights to Languedoc from the UK, Ireland and continental Europe. Most of these airports in Languedoc have been developed by either Ryanair or Easyjet, to take advantage of the low landing fees to provide cheap flights to the South of France from Northern Europe. Even though most ex-Pats I bump into in the Languedoc take great fun in knocking Ryanair and Easyjet, what they cannot escape is the unfortunate truth that these budget airlines providing cheap flights to Languedoc airports, then the region would not have been opened up to a larger tourism market.
