Your Private Jet Charter to Biarritz Airport

Biarritz Pays Basque Airport is close to the cities of Biarritz, Anglet, and Bayonne in southwest France. Its picturesque location on the Atlantic coast and convenient connections are only a couple of the many reasons to hire a charter flight to Biarritz.

Biarritz Airport History

Biarritz Airport dates back to the beginning of the 20th century but the most significant event in its history was the occupation of the German Luftwaffe during World War II. Several reconnaissance squadrons and fighter groups were stationed at the airfield between 1940 and 1944.

When it became clear that the war couldn’t be won, the Luftwaffe bombed the airfield, so that it had to be completely re-built from scratch following the end of the war. The first ongoing flight connection to Paris was established in 1948 and the airport opened for civilian aircraft in April 1954. Biarritz was officially designated as an international airport in 1977.

As Biarritz continued to develop as a popular holiday destination, the rapidly rising number of passengers necessitated expansion in 1994. This increased the airport’s capacity to a million passengers annually which now includes a dedicated terminal for passengers of private aircraft and corporate jets in Biarritz.

Experience Basque Culture with a Private Jet Charter to Biarritz

As the airport is only a few kilometres from the city centre, a short taxi or limousine ride will have you relaxing in the Basque atmosphere at one of the picturesque Atlantic coast resort city’s many luxury hotels within minutes of arrival. One need look no further than the Hôtel du Palais, one of the top hotels in France. Built for the Empress Eugénie around 1855, the property is renowned for aristocratic charm and unparalleled hospitality, promising an experience in and of itself that is justification for a charter flight to Biarritz.

The Bay of Biscay’s beaches are popular with surfers due to their high waves, whereas a virtual treasure trove of excellent golf courses within a 10-kilometre radius of the city makes the area perfect for golf enthusiasts. However you spend your time after your Biarritz flight – whether travelling for business or leisure – you’re sure to return fully recharged.

Although Biarritz is the exemplification of fine French cuisine, gourmets will certainly find no lack of temptation across the border in Spain. The city of San Sebastián (Donostia in Basque) – only a half hour by car from Biarritz – is regarded as the culinary capital of the Basque country and is the creative playground for many celebrity chefs. Usually served on crostini, pintxos are the region’s answer to tapas, allowing one to sample a bevy of flavours.
