Nice Airport to have third passenger terminal

Nice Airport which is the second busiest airport in France is expanding again. Extensions were completed last year to Terminal 2 and a brand new rental car terminal was opened last summer. (More on that here).

I see that The Riviera Times sent out an email newsletter on the 25th January saying  "New terminal announced for Nice Côte d’Azur Airport".

According to the newspaper's report It will be Situated between the current terminal 2 and the Var river, T3 will primarily welcome low-cost flights operators, such as easyJet, who want to speed up their turn-arounds between flights.

The airport says the major infrastructure works will cost 80 million euros. The proposed completion date will be in 2018 and it will not be as luxurious as terminals one and two being that it will be for the low cost market. See the rest of the article Here
