Rodez - RDZ

Rodez Airport is in the Aveyron, one of the least populated departments in France but also one of the most scenic. 

Rodez itself is a picturesque town on the banks of the river Aveyron and boasts an impressive Gothic Cathedral. 

The truly spectacular Viaduc du Millau is less than an hour away and is a “must see” if you are in the area - just follow the A75 southwards. There is a toll to cross the viaduct.  Near Millau are the Roquefort Caves where the famous blue cheese is made.

The airport is closed in winter but as soon as the flights recommence (around the end of March) the car hire companies reopen their desks for business.

Avis at rodez airport, Europcar at rodez airport and Hertz at rodez airport are all represented here with desks in the terminal building.  They don’t keep stocks of vehicles here so if you haven’t reserved one you are unlikely to get one.

Also, remember that these days, the earlier you book your car the cheaper it is likely to be.

Rodez Airport Arrivals

The Aveyron has some stunning scenery and you will see some of it as you come in to land for your Rodez airport arrivals.

The great bulk of the Massif Central is deeply scored by river valleys, all of which can be seen from the air.  Once on the ground, there are few frills (no airbridges for example) but also few delays. 

You must be able to negotiate the aircraft steps and then it’s a short walk across the tarmac to the terminal building.  If you like to keep an eye on the comings and goings view our Rodez airport arrivals page for an up to the minute list of what's happening at Rodez airport.

Rodez Airport Departures

You can arrive at the terminal for your Rodez airport arrivals either by car or by taxi.  In either case you can be dropped right outside the terminal, everything is so low key and user friendly. 

Inside the terminal are very few seats so you will notice people sitting outside in the sun before going through to Rodez departures. Hopefully the planned new extension will alleviate this. 

Our Rodez Airport Departures page will keep you up to date but remember, you must still check in on time even if you know your flight is delayed.

Rodez Airport Parking

As is quite common at small french airports, for the first 30 minutes the car park is free. Even 2 hours will only cost you 50 cents. It is very close to the terminal so, although you can drop off your passengers before parking, there is little point.

Luggage trolleys are available inside the terminal.

Rodez Airport Bars and Restaurants

There is a small but adequate café inside the terminal, accessible to both arriving and departing passengers but that's about it as far as Rodez airport bars and restaurants are concerned.

They serve hot and cold drinks and a range of snacks.  There is a lot of pressure on seating and many people take their drinks outside.

There are no shops at Rodez Airport.  There is a small space containing tourist information and some literature to take away.  There is also a cash till in the building.

Rodez Weather

Rodez is at an altitude of 600 metres (nearly 2000 feet) and snow is a regular occurrence in winter.  Its southerly latitude gives it warm summers which can be a pleasant change from the scorching temperatures further south.  For a look at the weather and a ten day forecast see our Rodez airport weather page.
