Strasbourg’s international airport is 17km southwest of the city centre (towards Molsheim), near the village of Entzheim. The airport is served by major carriers such as Air France, KLM, Iberia and budget airline Ryanair (London Stansted). Flights link Strasbourg to cities elsewhere in Europe, including London, Amsterdam, Madrid and Vienna, and domestic destinations including Paris, Nice, Lille and Lyon.
A speedy shuttle train links the airport to the train station (€4.30, nine minutes, four hourly); the ticket also covers your onward tram journey into the city centre.
Strasbourg city bus 21 links the Jean Jaurès tram terminus with Kehl (€1.70, 13 minutes), the German town just across the Rhine.
