A flight to Strasbourg Airport will take you direct from the UK to the heart of this charming city. As the only city in France to earn the title of World Heritage Site from UNESCO, Strasbourg is perfect for travellers who love medieval culture and natural landscapes. Better still, it’s less than two hours away from many UK destinations by plane. Strasbourg is ideally situated on the eastern French border just a short distance from Germany and Belgium, making it an ideal connecting point to reach cities like Paris, Frankfurt and Brussels.
Strasbourg is served by one airport: Strasbourg Airport (SXB), located in Alsace just 6 miles from Strasbourg itself. Getting to the city centre from Strasbourg Airport takes less than ten minutes by train or 30 minutes by tram. There are multiple dining options inside, including a regional cuisine restaurant and a pastry café. Other facilities include a photo service, an ATM, a souvenir shop and luggage trolleys. The airport also has 3,000 parking spaces, providing both long-term and short-term parking.
There are three airlines which offer flights from the UK to Strasbourg: Ryanair, KLM and Air France. Of these providers, Ryanair is the only airline with direct flights available. However, Ryanair flights to Strasbourg are seasonal, which means they’re only available between March and October. For passengers travelling between mid-autumn and late winter, non-direct flights via KLM and Air France are an ideal option.
