History of Nice airport

Nice Côte d’Azur airport has its roots in the need to set up a postal service between Corsica and Nice as early as 1918. However, it wasn’t until the late 1920s that the Aéro-club de Nice took charge of its facilities. During the Second World War, the airport was transformed into a military base, but after the conflict it evolved into a major tourist airport, meeting the growing demand for travel to the Côte d’Azur. Over the decades, it expanded and modernized to become France’s third-largest airport, with the addition of a second runway in 1978 and a hard-surfaced runway in 1944.

Today, Nice Côte d’Azur airport mainly serves the city of Nice and the Principality of Monaco. According to EBAA, the airport is one of the 3 busiest in Europe. In 2023, the Paris-le Bourget – Nice Côte d’Azur route will be the second busiest in Europe.
