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.
