HistoryEdit

KG 40, the prime land-based maritime patrol Luftwaffe unit was primarily based at Bordeaux-Mérignac during the Occupation of France in World War II. As a consequence of the temporary closure of the Cazaux Air Base, the civil authorities have been forced to share the runway with the French Air Force since November 2005.[citation needed]

TerminalsEdit

Bordeaux Airport features three passenger buildings:

  • Terminal A mainly for international flights [3]
  • Terminal B The passenger air terminal features two levels and is principally dedicated to Air France traffic between Paris and Bordeaux.[4]
  • Terminal billi is a designated separate facility for low cost carriers. It only consists of one floor and features small check-in and arrivals areas as well as a departures area equipped with six aircraft parking positions which are used by walk boarding.[5] Users of Terminal billi are easyJet, Ryanair and Wizz Air from 22 September 2017.[6]
