Fly with British Airways to Bordeaux and get your fix of natural scenery and fine wine in the heart of the French countryside. Long known as La Belle au Bois Dormant - the Sleeping Beauty - Bordeaux has more to offer than its neoclassical architecture.
Today, the city is the largest urban World Heritage Site in the world and has a diverse mix of shops and restaurants, perfect to while away the hours on a break from visiting the many wineries - some dating back to the 8th century - that surround the city. From weekend city breaks to longer holidays, there's plenty to keep you entertained from dawn until dusk and beyond in buzzing Bordeaux.
Our direct flights from London Gatwick to Bordeaux International Airport take around 2 hours. When you fly with us, you can take advantage of mobile, online or airport check-in options, meaning you can spend even less time travelling and more time enjoying your break in Bordeaux.
