Travel with your family
Step by step, make your trip easier with your family.
Nice Côte d'Azur Airport is the first airport in France to hold the Famille Plus label . This label certifies the airport's commitment to a comprehensive family welcome strategy.
Your children are subject to the same regulations as you. If the country you are travelling to requires a passport and visa, your children must have their own.
New regulations are in place since 15 January 2017 concerning minors leaving the country. An authorisation to leave the country is required for a minor child who lives in France and travels abroad alone or without parents. It is a form established and signed by a parent (or legal guardian). The form must be accompanied by a photocopy of an identity document from the signing parent. More information here
Choose your car park at Nice Côte d'Azur Airport.
There are large parking areas at each terminal.
Family parking spaces are marked. There are:
- two spaces in car park P3, with direct access to Terminal 1
- two spaces in car park P5, with direct access to Terminal 2
Children's seating and mobility equipment such as strollers, and baby carriers... will be machine controlled for safety.
Baby food and liquids, without limitation to the container size, will be allowed under certain conditions:
- The authorised quantity shall be proven necessary for the duration of the round-trip journey as well as the length of the stay.
- All products are subject to additional controls by the security agent.
- These controls may require the security agents to open the products to inspect their contents.
Look out for ALFA, our mascot, who will lead you to a less stressful security check. The control process remains identical at the Famille Plus control points.
For weekend departures during the Zone B school holidays (including Nice, Aix and Marseilles), trained staff will be there to welcome families with a smile, allowing your little ones to go through security without stress and turning these compulsory controls into a fun part of the trip.
Stewardesses will hand out gifts in the form of colouring sets, coloured pencils and sweets, so that children are kept entertained while they wait to board the aircraft.
ALFA, our mascot, will show you the way to the control points. Let your children find them, for there are surprises in store.
After all these stages, you may leave the security control point and return to the boarding lounge.

Testimonial from Famylies
Testimonial from the ROPTIN family
Bérengère ROPTIN and her two children, Ludivine aged 5 and Gaël aged 2 and a half, took off from Nice on an Emirates flight to go and meet daddy who was on the Seychelles
"This was the first time my children and I flew together. They were really excited at the idea of getting on a plane to go to see their father on the other side of the world, on the Seychelles. My husband is a sailor."
"I discovered the Famille+ programme when I got to the airport, and I was pleasantly surprised because it’s truly convenient."
"The children were given a small gift when we got to the boarding lounge. They spent part of the flight and some of the holiday colouring the book. I must confess it kept them nicely entertained."
"While we waited to board, Ludivine and particularly my son Gaël had lots of fun in the play area: it’s a complete bonus for parents... it lowers stress levels, the kids enjoy themselves, they feel at home in the airport."
"I strongly recommend all parents to make use of your airport’s Famille+ services, and I’ve already told people around me."
Testimonial from the CHAPUIS family
Clarisse Chapuis, her husband and their two children Maïlys aged 6 and Mathieu aged 2 and a half, followed Alfa on their way to take off on an Aer Lingus flight to Ireland.
"I was not familiar with the Famille+ programme before flying out of Nice. I was greeted by an agent at the screening station, who showed us the dedicated lane for families."
"It was a pleasant experience for all. My daughter got some face paint, and my son was too shy to try it but he really enjoyed the colouring set he was given."
"I didn’t know what other services were available, but I discovered them reading the small brochure I was given. We came by bus because we live 20 kilometres from Aix en Provence. But if we come again by car I’ll look for Famille+ parking spots. Compared to other airports, this one’s really good! The programme is very comprehensive."
"These small extras ensured my children’s experience at the airport was an enjoyable one! They set to work on the colouring book straight away, and especially when we were all together on the plane."
