The bi-annual Paris Airshow (17-23 June) is one of the most popular events on the aviation calendar, so if you’re heading to the French capital for the show then Paris-Pontoise Airport (POX/ LFPT) is just over 30km north west of the city and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Both Jet A-1 and Avgas are available here and Ameridair Handling operates as the FBO at this location. Offering comfort and discretion, Ameridair's facilities include a VIP lounge, high speed WiFi, onward transport and hotel booking services, crew lounge, flight support, interior and exterior aircraft cleaning, a heated hangar and long-term parking.
Last year’s Paris Airshow brought together well over 2,200 exhibitors, 150 aircraft (many of which take part in daily displays) and more than 320,000 visitors. This year’s show promises to be equally exciting!
For those attending the 53rd International Paris Airshow at the Salon du Bourget in June, then Paris-Pontoise is a convenient choice of airport with easy access to the exhibition venue by road and rail.
