The Cote d’Azur International Airport, or Aeroport Nice Cote d’Azur, is located on the Promenade des Anglais (Walk of the English). Near l’Arenas, this Nice airport has two terminals. It also serves as Monaco’s airport, since it is near Nice, with helicopter flights linking the city and the airport.
Cote d’Azur International Airport is the third most important facility in France, after Charles de Gaulle International Airport and Orly Airport; it can service up to 13 million travelers annually.
Air France is a subsidiary of Air France-KLM, and used to be the flag carrier of France; it uses Aeroport Nice Cote d’Azur as its second hub, offering economy class travel for both short haul and long haul trips. Called “Tempo,” it features reclining seats, winged headrests, a personal phone, and a touch-screen TV, with films and programs every 15 minutes. These come with premium meal services, as well.
A premium economy service called Alizé is also available, which includes lower reclining seats, foot rests to give you an electronic massage, feather pillows, and blankets. An upgraded meal service is included as well.
Ryanair, Europe’s largest low-cost airline, offers flights to most major EU cities; easyJet is another large, European cut-rate carrier. Both Ryanair and Easyjet offer cheap and no-frills Nice flights, with unassigned seats, no complimentary food, no connecting flights; assengers pay the airfare only, and can get extra services for an additional fee.
