Bordeaux Airport Information
Bordeaux - Merignac Airport (IATA: BOD) is an airport serving the French city of Bordeaux. The airport is located in the town of Merignac, 6 miles (10 km) west of Bordeaux, within the département of Gironde.
The airport operates on a two halls basis, within a single terminal, and is only linked to downtown by a coach company called JetBus. This lack of a public mass transport connection has led to a certain anger in the local area. Some people do use the bus 49 to Bordeaux 2 where they could stop at Lycée Mérignac to catch the tram on the A line to the city centre. However, there are plans for the tramway system to link the airport with downtown.
In addition to almost a flight per hour to Paris and daily flights to the major French cities, the airport offers daily and weekly flights to a large number of European and international destinations.
