2024 Cheap flights to Beziers airport in South of France

 

Discover the 9 low cost flight destinations in Europe which fly to Beziers airport in 2024. Beziers airport in South of France, serves the holiday region of the Languedoc and the Mediterranean beaches along the coast. Beziers airport (or Beziers Cap d'Agde Airport to give it its full name), began serious operations in 2009. Prior to this, Beziers was primarily a local charter and freight airport.

In 2007, the local Languedoc-Roussillon regional government helped to fund an extension of the runway to over 2km; which enabled Beziers airport to handle the Boeing 737s used by Ryanair and Easyjet. Flight routes then opened up between Beziers and Paris Orly and seasonal flights to Bastia in Corsica.

In 2009, Ryanair saw the opportunity to develop a low cost airport in a prime holiday location and it switched a number of its services from Perpignan airport. Ryanair began running a regular flights from Bristol to Beziers and then later added seasonal services from Manchester, London Stansted, London Luton and Edinburgh.

 

 

2024 cheap flights to Bezier airport in South of France

 

The terminal building at Beziers airport (which still resembles a High School it has to be said!) was further expanded during 2013 with the addition of further registration desks and baggage handling facilities. But therein lies the beauty of Beziers airport. It is a small airport that you can pitch up at 1 hour before your flight and still have time to grab a beer and read the paper.

Beziers airport has grown from handling 30,000 passengers and 23,000 flights in 2007 to just under 300,000 passengers and 30,000 flights in 2022. Beziers-Cap d'Agde airport has certainly helped to open up the local area in terms of holiday rentals and property buyers. The airport employs 110 people directly and it is estimated to provide over 600 jobs indirectly in the local area. Béziers airport is estimated to generate more than €65 million euros of revenue to the local economy.

Beziers airport also has some good local transport connections to Beziers SNCF train station (with TGV services to Perpignan, Carcassonne, Toulouse, Montpellier, Nimes, Agde and Avignon), Beziers bus station, Marseillan, Agde and Vias. But please, please, please, do not use the taxis at Beziers airport. They are such a rip-off. You will be looking at paying €75 for the 15 min trip from Beziers airport to Pezenas. It is OK if there are 4 of you in the car, but otherwise the local bus services are so much cheaper and the airport in Beziers does try to tie in the bus timetable with the arrival of the flights.

Car rental Beziers airport

beziers plage

 

All the usual car hire companies are represented at Beziers airport. The three main car rental companies are Thrifty, Avis and Europcar, but each of these partners up with the other main car hire companies such as Hertz, Wallgreen, National, Alamo and Budget. Be warned though, that this being France the registration process can be quite time-consuming, with the mandatory one person on the desk serving about 30 people.

What I always find amusing is watching the staff at Beziers airport when a plane comes into land. It is almost as if it takes them by surprise. "OMG! a plane has just come in - but it was only yesterday when another plane landed".

The cars are usually parked up in the outer car park (still only 2 mins walk away). The roads around Beziers airport are usually pretty quite and you are literally just 5 minutes away from the A9 autoroute (which takes you down to Perpignan and up to Montpellier, Nimes and Avignon) and the A75 which leads up to Pezenas, Clermont l'Herault and eventually Paris.

The local website and contact numbers for the Bezier airport car hire companies are as follows: Thrifty +33 04 67 39 63 03; Avis +33 04 67 28 65 44; and Europcar +33 04 67 26 75 88. 

 

10 Best places to stay near Beziers airport

beziers tourism south france2

 

The area around Beziers is beautiful. The city is surrounded by vineyards in all directions and the Mediterranean beaches are just 10 kms from the city (see 4 best beaches near Beziers). The famous Canal du Midi passes right past Beziers and spending a day walking or cycling along the canal tow-path is a wonderful holiday experience.

Beziers owes its fame and fortune to the Canal du Midi, which snakes past the city walls. The Canal du Midi was built by a local man, Paul Riquet, who is celebrated all over the city with statues, street names and buildings all commemorating him.

Beziers was the capital of the Languedoc wine region and it made its fortune transporting local wines up to Paris during the 19th and early-20th centuries. There are some excellent vineyards around Beziers, including Faugeres and Saint-Chinian.

Beziers has a reputation as a bit of a party town - especially during the summer Feria. This is a week long food and wine festival, with bullfighting being held in the Arènes de Béziers. Somebody told me once that they have to deliver over €15 million in cash to the ATM machines in Beziers during the one week of the festival, just to keep pace with the demand. 

If you want to be right on the coast, I would suggest that you consider places such as:

  • Portiragnes is located just 3kms from Beziers airport. There are actually two Portiragnes - the old village located beside the Canal du Midi and the holiday resort of Portiragnes Plage situated 3kms away on the Mediterranean coast
  • Vias - is located 5kms from Beziers airport. Like Portiragnes the town is split in 2 halves. There is the old medieval village of Vias and the modern resort of Vias Plage which is 2kms away on the coast and is home to numerous campsites and Amusement parks.
  • Serignan - is located 10 km from Beziers airport. It is a small town with a good range of shops and services, as well as an excellent Modern Art museum (Serignan Art Gallery). Serignan Plage is located 3kms from the town and is one of the best beaches in the Beziers area.
  • Cap d'Agde - is one of the largest holiday resorts in France. It is home to the largest naturist village in Europe and also provides a range of tourist attractions including Theme Parks, a golf course, Water Park, a Marina and plenty of restaurants and nightclubs.
  • Marseillan - is a beautiful harbour town with its own beach located 3 kms away. Marseillan features numerous harbour-side restaurants and bars and is also home to Noilly Prat (the key ingredient for Martini drinks).  

Further inland (but still within 20 mins of the beach), I would also recommend

  • Pezenas - this beautiful historic town was once the capital of the Languedoc region. Enjoy the fabulous Saturday market which takes over the whole town or enjoy the weekly food & wine festival held along the main street of Pezenas
  • Tourbes - a lovely wine-making village located close to Pezenas
  • Nezignan l'Eveque - one of the prettiest villages in the area around Beziers
  • Neffies - a hilltop village with 2 of the best restaurants in the area
  • Caux - a popular wine-making village surrounded by vineyards. In the centre of the village you will find 2 restaurants, a bar, 2 shops and a pharmacy
