The Grand Ouest Airport Mini Guide
About the Airport:
The new airport is intended to replace the existing Nantes Atlantique Airport. It will be a large international airport built with a cost of around €580 million. It will be located relatively close to the city centre, at approximately 20 miles outside. The airport will have an initial capacity for around 4 million passengers, with plans to increase this to 9 million by 2050.
The airport has been met with a lot of opposition, particularly from the green party. However those in support of the airport state that the existing airport’s proximity to the city centre of Nantes makes it unsuitable for expansion. It is stated that the airport is needed to cope with the ever-increasing demand for air travel from the area. It is hoped that the new airport will boost economic development for the area and allow residents and companies greater freedom of travel around France, Europe and the rest of the world.
The airport is planned to have good connections to the major roads and motorways. The airport is conveniently located just 5 miles from the city centre of Nantes, making it easily accessible from the airport. The new facility will be located approximately 100km south of Rennes
and 150km north west of Poitiers
Car hire will be available on arrival at the airport, making it the most convenient place to collect your car from and begin your onward journey, be it for business or pleasure. Car hire from the airport is an affordable and easy option, with direct roads to the capital city and access to the French motorways readily available.
