Serving the capital of the Alsace region in France, Strasbourg Airport is a regional airport that hosts only a few airline companies. Air France is the busiest airline at this airport. The French flag carrier airline links the city of Strasbourg with other major domestic destinations such as Bordeaux, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Montepellier, Nantes, Nice and Toulouse. Of course, Air France also operates daily flights to the French capital city. However, passengers will have to land in Orly Airport, which is a small secondary airport in Paris. Additionally, the domestic service by Air France also extends to the Mediterranean island of Corsica.
When it comes to international service at Strasbourg Airport, Air France is also the best option. This major French carrier invites passengers to Venice Marco Polo Airport and Rome-Fiumicino International Airport. Amsterdam and Vienna are other major capital cities that can be reached from Strasbourg Airport thanks to Air France. Most of the regional service offered by the French flag carrier is actually operated by smaller French airlines such as Brit Air and Regional.
Another busy airline at Strasbourg Airport is Volotea. Based in Barcelona, this Spanish airline offers low cost airfare between the Alsace region and other major destinations within France. Bordeaux, Montepellier, and Nantes are large French cities that are accessible all year long via Volotea. The Spanish low-cost airline also connects the city of Strasbourg with the Spanish Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea. Speaking of Mediterranean islands, Volotea offers seasonal trips to France’s Corsica.
Another Barcelona based airline serving Strasbourg Airport is Vueling Airlines. Unlike Volotea, Vueling Airlines actually offers seasonal flights to its home in Spain’s second largest city.
