Pau-Pyrénées Airport, which handled more than 635,000 passengers last year, plays a major role in developing access to the Nouvelle Aquitaine administrative region in France.

Serving six regular destinations, Pau-Pyrénées is one of three airports in the southwest of France to be equipped with an all-weather landing system, alongside Bordeaux and Toulouse.

The airport is located at the centre of an economic hub that combines industrial services and military activities with the development of the airborne troop college.
