Flights to Montpellier

Sunny weather and fascinating architecture make the south of France a popular travel destination, and the city of Montpellier is no exception. Travellers looking to bask on the warm beaches or check out the neoclassical Old Town can reach Montpellier’s airport by plane in just two hours direct. Montpellier has plenty to keep holiday-goers occupied, but it’s also a great springboard to other major French destinations (such as Paris and Marseille) as well as Barcelona and Madrid.

Which is the main airport in Montpellier?

This city has one airport: Montpellier–Méditerranée Airport (MPL), also known as Fréjorgues Airport. Located just 4.5 miles from central Montpellier, the airport is a short tram or train ride from the city centre and its attractions. Inside Montpellier Airport, travellers will find a variety of bars and restaurants, duty free shops, an ATM, a VIP lounge, and free WiFi. Outside, parking is available for up to 60 days.

Which airlines offer flights to Montpellier?

easyJet is the only airline which offers direct flights from the UK to Montpellier, with planes departing from London Heathrow, London Luton, London Gatwick and Bristol. Direct easyJet flights from Gatwick are available year-round, while other airports provide seasonal flights to Montpellier. Several other airlines offer non-direct flights, including Air France, Aer Lingus and Norwegian Air International.

Why travel by plane to Montpellier?

One of the biggest perks of travelling to Montpellier by plane is flight time. Direct flights from the UK take around two hours total, getting passengers to this Mediterranean haven in no time. With these flights departing from Bristol Airport as well as three London airports, travellers have flexibility in where they travel from. Of course, those looking to travel from another airport can book non-direct flights (many of which take less than four hours).
