Nantes Atlantique (NTE) Airport

Nantes Atlantique NTE Airport Overview

Nantes Atlantique Airport NTE, currently the largest airport in Western France, serves the country's Lower Atlantic region and is gateway to the famous Pays-de-la-Loire region and seaside resorts La Baule and Pornic.  While a new Airport in a rural area was to replace the current one - repeated opposition from the public have so far prevented its construction.
The city of Nantes is located in the Loire Valley, noted for its Dukes of Brittany Castle, wineries, and nearby seaside resorts La Baule & Pornic.

NTE Airport is located in Bouguenais, 8 km southwest of the city of Nantes, accessible by the Nantes Ring Road (at Grand Lieu Gate) which connects to D723 & A83, as well as to N1665, N137, AA11 & N249. T

With a long runway, and yearly about 3.7M passengers, domestic and foreign airlines serve the airport with direct flights throughout Europe, with connections around the world. Seasonal charter flights are available to popular vacation destinations.

Nantes Airport has one passenger terminal.

Parking options at Nantes Airport: Parking Garage P0, and Parking Lots P2, P3 East & P4) are available for short- and long-term parking, without time limit.
Disabled GIG/GIC parking spaces are available for badge holders, opposite the main entrance, in parking lot P2. You can book your parking (at a fee) by phone for P0, P3 Est and P4 by calling +33 (0) and reserving by 6pm the day prior to your arrival.

Future Airport Developments: Since the current Airport cannot be extended due to its close proximity to the city, construction of a new airport  "Aeroport du Grand Ouest" (30 km northwest of Nantes, in Notre-Dame-des Landes, a small village) is to be built.  According news articles available, the new Airport site is hotly contested by several factions, including some opposition leaders who were on a hunger strike.  As of yearend 2013 no news are available as to when and if there will be a new Airport.
