Nice Côte d'Azur Airport ( ) is an airport located 3.2 NM southwest of Nice, in the Alpes-Maritimes department of France. The airport is positioned 7 km west of the city centre, and is the principal port of arrival for passengers to the Côte d'Azur. It is the third busiest airport in France after Charles de Gaulle International Airport and Orly Airport, both in Paris. It is located on the western end of the Promenade des Anglais, near l'Arénas and has two terminals. Due to its proximity to the Principality of Monaco, it also serves as that city-state's airport, with helicopter service linking the city and airport. Some airlines marketed Monaco as a destination via Nice Airport.

The Chamber of Commerce and the Nice Côte d'Azur industry operate the airport. The airport's director is Hervé de Place, director of the Côte d'Azur airports, which includes Côte d'Azur International Airport's cousin airport, Cannes-Mandelieu. In 2009, 9,830,987 passengers travelled through the airport, a number that decreased to 9,636,548 for 2010.
