Paris Le Bourget

Officially opened in 1919, Paris Le Bourget has played a significant role in international aviation. Presently, Paris-Le Bourget Airport is known as Europe's leading business airport hub and as the venue hosting the spectacular Paris Air Show once every two years since 1951. Paris Le Bourget is situated just 12 km from Charles de Gaulle and 7 km from Paris. It benefits from excellent transport links to both the airport and the city centre.

Paris-Le Bourget Airport covers an area of 553 hectares and has 3 runways, which makes it possible to accommodate any aircraft. Le Bourget is also home to the Air & Space Museum (Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace), featuring a planetarium, flight simulators, exhibitions and special events.

Parc des Expositions Paris le Bourget is set in the immediate vicinity of the airport. With 350,000 sq metres of outdoor space and 250,000 sq metres of indoor exhibition area, it is the third-largest venue in Paris. Parc des Expositions Paris le Bourget has 5 halls and 6 conference rooms, offering modern facilities and business-friendly services.
