Nice or Cannes

For private jet charter, hire, and rental to and from Nice and Cannes, keep in mind that Nice is better equipped and prepared.

Nice is the fifth most populated city in France and is located on the Mediterranean Sea on France´s south east coast. Nice is a major European vacation destination. It boasts the second largest hotel capacity of France. It also has the third busiest airport, after both Paris airports. The Côte d’Azur Airport does a great job with private jet traffic, although in summer, slots are a factor. Nice typically hosts 4 million tourists each year and is the second most popular city, after Paris, for tourists.

Cannes is located very close to Nice on the French Riviera. It is the host of the Cannes Film Festival. Each year the Nice airport and Cannes airport (Mandelieu Airport) fill to capacity with parked private jets. Private jet flights are common to both airports, although Mandelieu Airport has a short run way with restrictive operating hours, making Nice the logical preference for operators.
