Paris Le Bourget

Paris Le Bourget is Europe's busiest private jet airport

There are over 3,000 airports in Europe which private jets can use – versus just 300 for airline flights. But which are the busiest?

Below are the Top 25 private jet airports in Europe, including the number of flight movements (ie a take off or a landing) by private jets in the last year.

The figures calculated from May 2012 to April 2013, to give an up-to-date picture for a whole year. Monthly figures can show some fluctuations, for example with a major sport or cultural event generating a surge to a particular airport, so a whole year gives a clear picture of airport trends.

Paris Le Bourget was the busiest private jet airport airport in Europe, with nearly 48,000 movements in the last year. Le Bourget is a dedicated airport for private aviation, and year round is the most important hub for private aviation in Europe.

Geneva Cointrin is second place, and the city pairing of private jet flights between Paris and Geneva is the most popular routing flight for PrivateFly’s clients, year round.

Nice Cote D’Azur is in third place.  Nice is in the top 10 every month, but flights into Nice (and also Cannes Mandelieu, at no 12) soar in the summer months. From May to August, Nice and Cannes are especially popular airports.

London Luton is in fourth place and, with three airports in the top 25 (and a total of 57,082 flight movements), London is the top-rated city overall. See our infographic map guide to London private jet airports.
