Perpignan - PGF

Perpignan airport is the most southerly in France and is overshadowed by the massive bulk of  the Canigou peak,  at 2785m, the highest in the southern Pyrenees.

The proximity of the mountains makes the weather a little capricious and it is often quite windy.  The airport is found between junctions 41 and 42 of the A9 motorway and is well signposted.  Don’t be misled by the sight of four or five aircraft parked close to the road.  This is not the airport – just follow the signs

Perpignan Airport Arrivals

With any luck you will get a lovely view of the Pyrenees as you come in to land.  Arriving at the airport is a no-fuss operation.  Steps are wheeled up to the aircraft door and passengers disembark straight down onto the tarmac and walk the few yards to the terminal building.

If you think you will have trouble negotiating the steps, then book wheelchair assistance through your airline when you buy your ticket.   There is one luggage carousel in Perpignan airport arrivals and the bags are delivered within a few minutes of the passengers arriving in the terminal building.

Perpignan Airport Departures

Perpignan Airport follows a common design among French regional airports whereby the terminal building has one concourse with departures and arrivals at opposite ends. This means that you can enter by either of the two doors and use the same facilities whether you are just arriving or on your way home again.

The Perpignan airport departures desks are at the left-hand end as you go in and each airline is clearly marked.  Live departure information can be found at Perpignan Airport Departures

Perpignan airport taxis all line up outside the terminal and are therefore easy to find.  The ride into the centre of Perpignan is only about 10 minutes and the taxis are all metered.

Perpignan Airport Parking

There is one public car park (P1) and the Car Hire Car Park (P2)

If returning a hire car, don’t miss the left turn signposted “Park Louers” which takes you into P2. If you do miss it, carry on past the front of the terminal, swing round to the left in a U turn (don’t go into the public car park) and go back to what will now be a right turn.

In P1 you get 15 minutes free and the first hour is 1.60. Two hours costs 2.20 euros. Take a ticket on entry and pay at the pay station before departure.

There are two machines located outside the terminal, on the way to the car park.

Perpignan Weather

The weather in Perpignan is influenced by the Pyrenees.  One factor is the almost constant wind.  In summer, with temperatures in the thirties, it has a very welcome cooling effect.  Be careful though, although the wind can make it feel very pleasant, in summer the sun is very strong indeed.
