Blagnac
Travel Guide

The world headquarters of Airbus has become a hub of aeronautics, with its tours and exhibitions on the past and future of aircraft.

As the location of the region’s main airport, the Blagnac district of Toulouse is a fascinating hub of aviation. Several museums and activity centers trace the history of aircrafts, with tours of Airbus, a local company, among the highlights. Learn about the city’s intriguing relationship with air travel as you explore the main attractions on a visit to Blagnac.

For a close-up look at the latest in aeronautics, join the Let’s Visit Airbus tour. Choose from four themed visits, which reveal different aspects of production including assembly line secrets, military transportation and sustainable development. Climb to the panoramic platform and look down at the assembly line and one of the most modern Airbus airliners, the A350XWB, in production.

Continue the aircraft theme with a trip to the Ailes Anciennes Toulouse, a vast outdoor complex that restores and salvages vintage airplanes, helicopters and gliders. Attend some of the restoration workshops to learn how it’s done.

Many of the museum’s planes are displayed in the Aeroscopia Museum, a large site a little north of central Blagnac. The museum traces the history of aviation using scale models and a vast mural. See Concorde and the Super Guppy, among other legendary airplanes in this hangar.

Blagnac has a rich history that extends beyond the invention of the airplane. Marvel at the Sainte Catherine de Sienne Monastery, which has a gothic revival style and dates back to the 19th century.

On a sunny day, head to the Odyssud park and set up a picnic beside its scenic lake.

The district is located along the eastern side of the Blagnac Airport, in western Toulouse. Travel on the Ouibus from the Gare de Toulouse Matabiau to reach the airport in around 20 minutes. You can also drive here from the city center in about the same time.

We flew in late at night, an hour late, stayed at the excellent NH Hotel and rented a car the next morning to make the 3-hour drive north to our usual holiday home on the river Lot. The airport at Blagnac is in course of renovation and expansion.
