Strasbourg Airport

Strasbourg Airport (SXB)

Overview

Strasbourg International Airport is a modest, yet efficient, airport southwest of Strasbourg in France. Staff tend to be very helpful and friendly and the airport is run efficiently and smoothly.

The airport is just nine minutes by shuttle-train from Strasbourg. As such, passengers won't find too many amenities within the terminal itself, but its close proximity to town means that it doesn't need a wide selection of restaurants as a quick in-and-out experience is far more favourable.

Location

The airport is nine miles (14km) southwest of Strasbourg.

Getting to the city

There is a regular shuttle bus to Baggersee station where trams can be taken to the city centre. A train shuttle is also available from the airport with four trains departing every hour. The journey time is nine minutes and a footbridge allows passengers to access the station platform from the airport. Alternatively, taxis are available outside Arrivals.
