Cannes Mandelieu airport (CEQ/LFMD).
This month the 2018 Formula 1 French Grand Prix is back in France, at Castellet, from 21-24 June. Thinking about flying over for this prestigious fixture in the Grand Prix calendar? Then why not refuel at Cannes Mandelieu airport (CEQ/LFMD)?
It is a premium Air BP Sterling Card acceptance location, only 5km from Cannes Croisette and 55km from Monte Carlo. Both are great bases if you’re looking to watch the race.
Cannes Mandelieu is an ideal airport option if you’re after discretion and convenience. FBO services are offered by Sky Valet and the airport’s small size allows for a speedy arrival and departure, while transfer cars are able to park just metres from your aircraft doors. Both the VIP and crew lounges offer Wi-Fi access and there is also a gourmet restaurant overlooking the runway.
The return of the F1 race to French territory after a 10-year hiatus is hugely exciting and the state-of-the-art Paul Ricard circuit is a fitting host.
The circuit, which previously hosted 14 editions of the French Grand Prix between 1971 and 1990 has been completely refurbished in preparation for this celebrated race. The French event was last held at the Nevers Magny-Cours circuit in 2008.
