Getting to Cannes

The closest airport to the city is Nice Airport, but international flights to Nice are limited, meaning that visitors will need to connect through another French or European airport. You have a map showing direct flights from European cities here
For travelers from North and South America, Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (Paris CDG) may be the more obvious arrival point, but the airport has a poor record for flight connections and travelers may want to consider another European hub to get to Nice. If you do select Paris to connect, be sure that your connection is from Paris CDG and not from Paris Orly Airport, the main domestic airport.
