The airport is open to both national and international carriers, private planes and is certified for both instrument flight and visual flight. It has daily flights to several European destinations operated by Ryanair using Boeing 737-800 aircraft, as well as non-regular flights to Lyon and Bastia. Due to its limited security measures, the airport is not open to larger carriers.

The airport is home to around 40 Alpha Jets belonging to the French Air Force , as well as a couple of Mirage fighters as part of the Vigipirate defence plan.
