Another summer favourite, Istanbul - Sabiha Gocken, the 2nd Istanbul airport, on the Asian side of the city, east of the Bosphorus strait, which now complements the service to Turkey out of Nice. In addition to serving Istanbul, the low-cost operator Pegasus Airline sallows passengers to reach the very popular destinations on the Turkish seaside, as well several cities of the Near and Middle East.

 For Dominique Thillaud, Chairman of the Board of Aéroports de la Côte d’Azur,

"The air service for the summer of 2015 is remarkable this year, on two counts: on the one hand, it has new, attractive Mediterranean destinations to vary the holiday offer for Côte d'Azur residents, and on the other, it continues the development of international routes with high visitor potential, allowing the summer clientèle to the Côte d'Azur to be renewed each new tourist season."
