Pau Pyrénées Airport is superbly placed for ski resorts in the Pyrenees and the spectacular national parks of the central Pyrenees. Pau airport is also a useful gateway for Lourdes and the Atlantic beaches of south-west France. The city is an elegantly attractive university town known for its charming old centre, café culture and friendly atmosphere. The airport is 6 miles from the city centre.
Flights tend to be relatively expensive due to the absence of low-cost airlines using the airport. The winter 2012 schedule only has direct flights from London City Airport with Air France/CityJet. It remains to be seen whether Pau will attract low-cost airlines in the future.
This is a very small regional airport with just a handful of flights each day. Passing through arrivals and departures is a relaxed affair. There is a snack bar, a restaurant and a few shops.
