Flights to Nice Côte d'Azur (NCE)

The best airport for the Cannes Film Festival



For those flying in for the festival, the main airport is Nice-Côte d'Azur International, which is about 25km (16 miles) from Cannes. Despite having only two terminals, Nice-Côte d'Azur is France's second busiest airport, so a large number of regional and international airlines fly there, either direct or via major European hubs such as Paris, London, Amsterdam, Madrid, or Frankfurt.

A second airport, Cannes-Mandelieu is actually closer to Cannes, but this is mainly used by light aircraft, private jets, and charter flights, so tends not to be useful to festivalgoers.
