To Your Destination
Options are limited because of the size of the airport. There are no trains directly to or from the airport; the nearest station is in Rodez. Buses will take you from the airport at regular intervals into Rodez, stopping at the station amongst other destinations. Taxis too are available from the airport and rates into the town are reasonable. If you’ve decided upon hiring a car, pre-booking is recommended so you can have your choice of vehicle. The desks are easily found in the arrivals hall before the exit doors.
There should be no problem with queues at the desks except at peak times when it may be advisable to send a party member through to queue whilst others collect the luggage. Leaving the airport is easy. Access onto the D13 which becomes the D964 as it enters Rodez, is quick and from the city, national roads are signposted clearly.
There is a small information point at the airport that can advise on onward travel and accommodation. They also deal with lost luggage there.
There are no banks at the airport but there is an ATM.
Shopping opportunities are meagre there consisting of a newsagent selling packaged snacks, papers and magazines and the Espace Tourisme Aveyron duty free shop which is very small and has a limited quantity of the usual duty free fare together with produce and wine from the region.
There is only one restaurant/café serving basic meals and snacks. The only alternatives are packaged snacks from the newsagent.
Wi-Fi facilities haven’t yet reached the airport, lost items should be reported to the information stand. For first aid enquiries, ask a member of staff at the airport who will find a qualified first aider for you. The airport does all in its power to assist passengers with reduced mobility and ramps have been installed along with disabled toilet facilities. Staff are always on hand to help but specific needs should be communicated to the airport 48 hours before travel so that the service is smooth. General assistance is available at all times and you should remember to inform your airline of specific needs so that they can assist you in flight.
Rodez Marcillac is the perfect airport to begin your discovery of the little visited Cevennes. There you’ll find beautiful countryside through which the stately Lot and Garonne rivers flow. Many visitors go there to glide effortlessly down them on kayaking trips or camp alongside their crystal clear waters.
If you’ve hired a car you’ll be able to travel further afield and visit the Castle of Najac, perched precariously on top of a hill. In Rodez itself, the Cathedral de Notre Dame de Rodez is fascinating as its western wall was incorporated in the town’s defensive wall in the Middle Ages
