Low Cost Bordeaux Mérignac Airport Parking
Bordeaux Airport is a well constructed and modern facility, offering passengers a wide range of amenities. Passengers and visitors traveling to the airport will find plenty of adequate parking spaces, arranged as short-term and long-term parking areas. The airport is closely situated to the city of Bordeaux, only 10 km or 6 miles away. It is actually situated in the town of Mérignac, and hence its second name of Bordeaux Mérignac Airport.
