Airport Info

75% of the grounds of Biarritz Pays Basque airport are located in the town of Anglet and 25% in Biarritz. The airport was built in the 1950s to serve a catchment area covering the southern part of the Landes département and the entire Pyrénées-Atlantiques département, as well as part of the Guipuzcoa province in the Spanish Basque Country. Biarritz Airport is run by a special governing board (“Syndicat Mixte”), made up of members from the Municipal Councils of CôteBasqueAdour, the Department Councils of the Pyrénées-Atlantiques, the Bayonne Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Department Councils of the Landes and the town of Saint Jean de Luz. The involvement of all these key local government players shows just how determined we are in our policy to place BAB Airport at the heart of the region’s future economic development.
