Flights to Perpignan airport South France 2024

perpignan airport


Perpignan airport is the Southern most airport in mainland France. The airport at Perpignan really started developing once Ryanair began operating flights to Perpignan from Ireland and the UK. But in the last few years Ryanair has cut back on its schedule of flights to Perpignan and it now only operates seasonal flights from Dublin and Birmingham and some schedule routes to London Stansted and Charleroi airport in Belgium. This is a real shame because the Ryanair flights really helped open up the region and some of the local towns and the ski resorts at Font Romeu and Les Angles really benefitted from that. There was a rumour circulating that Ryanair fell out with the CEO of Perpignan airport over landing fees, but I don't know if there is any truth in that.

I must admit, Perpignan is not my favourite airport to land at because its situation close to the Pyrenees and the coast means that you can often get some very strong cross-winds. Perpignan airport has recently undergone a much need refurbishment and it has expanded its schedule of flights mainly through Air France, but also with Iberia. 



Cheap flights to Perpignan airport France during 2024

Although Perpignan airport has some regular flights to Paris and other cities in France (Nantes, Lille and Bastia), Perpignan airport is mainly a seasonal airport, with a summer schedule of flights from Birmingham, Leeds-Bradford and Stansted airports with Ryanair. During the summer months (May to mid-September), Aer Lingus runs 4 flights per week from Dublin airport to Perpignan airport. The flight prices are currently quite reasonable, at around €200 each way.

Ryanair are currently advertising flights to Perpignan airport from London Stansted for just €40 return - which is an incredible price. The prices do pick up quite a lot for weekend flights, especially on a Saturday. So if you are looking to fly to Perpignan for a family holiday this summer, you might be advised to look for a villa to rent with flexible changeover dates. In fact, when you weigh up the costs, it may be worth paying slightly more for the villa (if you can arrive on a different day than Saturday), because you will then save quite a bit money on the flights.
