Ryanair at Nimes airport - How does new system work?


I have just returned from a quick trip to France and thought I'd share with you how Ryanair's new "No more check in desks" system actually works.

In brief, very well it seems. I checked in online about a week before I flew for both my outbound and return journeys and printed off my boarding cards at work.

When I arrived at Nimes airport there was a queue of people waiting to go through security into the departure lounge so I hopped on the end of the queue and that was that.

They were pretty tight on checking the hand luggage for size but I didn't see anybody's bag being weighed.

Basically the system is the same as it always was except for the removal of one of the queues. As far as I can see it's a good move that works well.

Beziers airport undergoes refurbishment

Reconstruction of the terminal at Beziers airport is now in hand and will be finished in March.

A new departure lounge is being made in the area which used to house the airport admin - which will now be on a floor above the arrivals area. 


The reception area is also being enlarged and work will soon start to create another standing for a second plane .





Thanks to Robin Hicks of WoW for this update about Beziers airport.

No BA Strike Over Easter

BA union Unite, has announced that any forthcoming strike action will not affect the Easter holidays. The ballot is next week and our advice is to either wait until after that before booking flights or to use another airline. We have details of direct flights from UK and Ireland to Toulouse and also direct flights to Paris airports. Remember, once the strike dates are announced, the likes of Easyjet and Ryanair will get booked up very quickly.

All quiet on the Ryanair front for flights to France


Ryanair are reporting all systems normal today for flights to France.

Just out of interest. Ryanair are quoting the following punctuality figures for week ending 10th Jan 2010;

Flights on time - 72%
Within 1 hour - 91%

Obviously these figures aren't just limited to flights to France but are a representation of Ryanair flights as a whole.

Take a direct flight to Nice for a winter break


The snow can't last forever! - can it? Once the white stuff clears away and its back to the usual grey, damp, British winter, how about a trip to the Cote d'Azur to lift your spirits? Once the preserve of the rich and famous, the south of France with its mild winters is open to all by means of direct flights from UK to Nice. From Monte Carlo to St Tropez, enjoy the riviera out of season and, just for a while, forget about the snow and fog. Car hire rates are often discounted in the low season - you can use our form to get a free, instant quotation for your car hire at Nice airport. Go on - it'll do you good.
