Airport - Pau

Airport

Make sure you get a seat on the left side

Pau is located in the South west corner of France, 700 km from Paris. Driving to Pau from Paris is quite long and one may have to consider air transport or train.
Pau airport is a rather small one; it has 10daily Air France flights to Paris (Orly and Roissy) and 3 daily flights to Lyon.
Many British and North European have more and more Bearn as destination very often to look for country houses, mild winters, and low cost companies operate on the Pau airport.
Transavia has 4 flights a week from Amsterdam and Ryan has a daily flight from London.
The local chamber of commerce and industry actively promotes the development of the airport. Check the website for companies and schedules.

Important serious tip: when checking in for a Pau-bound flight, make sure you get a seat on the left side: when approaching and landing (well, with fine weather) you will have a wonderful view over the Pyrenees.
Look at the snow-capped mountains in the background on the Pau airport picture.
And arriving at sun set is not bad as well; picture is not good, but gives an idea of what can be expected.

Travelling by train is now a good option with the TGV (Train à Grande Vitesse) which is a very good means to get to Aquitaine from Paris (Bordeaux is at 3 hours from Paris, Pau 5 hours).
