Tarbes-Lourdes Pyrénées Airport, is located in the center of the South-west Region and serves the city of Tarbes and Lourdes (located 10 km from each other).
 
The airport allows you to combine all the tourist sites of the Hautes-Pyrenees, including the Pic du Midi and the Cirque de Gavarnie, the ski resorts, the Marian city of Lourdes but also the Atlantic Ocean and the cities in the south-west of Spain.
 
Tarbes-Lourdes Pyrénées Airport is the 3rd largest airport in the Midi-Pyrénées region for passenger traffic (after the airports of Toulouse Blagnac and Montpellier Méditerranée) and is characterized by a predominantly charter traffic activity due to its proximity to the city of Lourdes, but also by direct scheduled flights operated by traditional and low-cost airlines.
 
The destinations in Europe and world-wide are served each year by different airlines, including Albastar, the top European carrier for connections to Lourdes.
 
The airport has a 3,000 meter runway that allows it to accommodate all types of aircraft such as the A380 and the Beluga for training flights.
 
In 2011, the development of private and business General Aviation operations, allowed the construction of a Business Terminal for private flights.
 
The airport owner is Pyrenia, a public company that brings together three local authorities and created in 2005. In 2009 Pyrenia chose the Snc-Lavalin Group as its airport management company. In 2016 the Edeis Group has taken over the Snc-Lavalin activities, including the management of Tarbes Lourdes Pyrénées Airport.
