Cannes Mandelieu Airport

Cannes Mandelieu Airport

The first flights in the Siagne Valley go back to the year 1905. The airport was completed on its current site in 1930 by private individuals, then in 1937 it became a government airport and was managed by the Air Secretariat. Subsequently, the government increased its surface area to 155 hectares (79 hectares of which are in the Commune of Cannes and 36 in that of Mandelieu). At this time, being the only airport for the Côte d'Azur, Air France flights landed at Cannes.

After the Liberation, the partially destroyed facilities were reconstructed and a 1,100 metre runway constructed. The airport then took on the name "Cannes-Mandelieu".

In order to modernise the infrastructures and build the airport terminal and hangars, in 1966 the French government granted the airport to the Alpes Maritimes Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The aim of the Consular Body, today called the Nice Côte d'Azur Chamber of Commerce and Industry, is to manage and continually adapt these facilities to the region’s economic requirements. Cannes-Mandelieu Airport can therefore fulfil its purpose as a hub for business and tourism on the French Riviera.

Today, Cannes Mandelieu Airport has become the benchmark business airport with a premium quality approach and is continually searching for new services to offer its clientele. Its surface area totals 115 hectares, a large part of which has been intentionally retained for green spaces. The 1500m², fully air-conditioned terminal building houses many services which are available 7 days a week, such as a restaurant-bar, car hire services, meeting rooms, offices, a VIP area and rooms reserved for pilots and crew.

Cannes-Mandelieu Airport is also the ideal glamorous location to organise your meetings, seminars or events (public area only; no option available to organise events in restricted areas on the runway or in the hangars).
