> Pau Airport en zone de turbulence
4 novembre 2009, par Maximo
Ryanair increases flights from the terminal for Low-Cost "of Bordeaux. Closer to Pau, Lourdes displays in high numbersincrease, and Biarritz. The battle tunes played on the ground : A convince low-costs to settle on the tarmac !
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation gives all figures on its website. They mark a sharp increase over the period 2005/2008 for the airport of Tarbes (46.6%) and Biarritz (+25.5%). During the same period Pau Uzein earned 11.9% of passenger traffic.
In 2008, Biarritz has achieved traffic of more than one million
passenger Tarbes 676,000 (461,000 in 2005) and Pau 816,000.
For 2009 it will probably put a damper on good
Tarbes figures since 2008 was the anniversary year
apparitions in Lourdes. The fact remains that the airport is
managed recently by a Canadian group with undeniable skill
for airport management.
Biarritz now provides flights to London, Birmingham, Dublin,
Geneva and Helsinki abroad. For France, we can fly
from the BAB to Marseille, Lyon, Nice and Paris. Paris served by
Easy Jet also serves prices far more attractive Air
France in Pau.
Tuesday evening a reservation to "jump" on Wednesday in Paris (go in the morning, returning at night) gave a rate of € 252.98 (A & R) from Biarritz and Pau from € 573.36.
Airports allow economic development in a region.
Yet must they open the largest possible number of
destinations at the best price !
The internationality Pau has seen him pass 21% of foreign passengers
2008, Biarritz 26%, 33.5% Bordeaux, Toulouse and 37.1 Lourdes / Tarbes an unbeatable 84%. Pau, more enclosed than the other city
The flight Ryanair Pau / Brussels is suspended until April. Wish it is only temporary and that sooner or later new lines - one speaks of a Pau-Pisa-appear in Pau at risk of it distanced *.
