Carcassonne Airport Access
The Carcassonne Airport is located a few miles west of the city of Carcassonne. The airport is in the Aude department (11) of the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France.
The airport is not far from the A61 Autoroute (Motorway). The junction is Carcassonne-Z.I #23. Follow the signs ‘l'Aérodrome de Carcassonne Salvaza’.
This map gives you an idea of where the Carcassonne Airport is at. There is also an Access Map on the Carcassonne Tourist board web site that gives you very good idea of where the airport is in relationship to the town.
There is a shuttle that runs between the airport and Carcassonne. With stops at the train station, town centre (Ville Basse), hotels (on request) and La Cité. The trip takes 15-25 minutes with tickets for € 5 bought on board. Your ticket also lets you travel on the public transport system for one hour.
There is a taxi rank in front of the airport. The trip to Carcassonne costs € 12 - € 15 depending on where you want to go. The Taxi du Minervois web site does a very good job of explaining French taxi rates and tariffs in the Aude department (location of the Carcassonne Airport). They also serve the Carcassonne Airport and speak English if you need a taxi. I recommend pre booking so as not to have problems.
Holiday Taxis: Provides airport transfers by taxi, minibus, shuttle, coach and limousine.
