Only 20 flights arrived at Nice Airport on Tuesday, and when code-sharing is taken into account the figure was 12.

Most of the flights were to and from Paris and Corsica. The only flight outside France was from Amsterdam, operated by KLM.

The figure is not as dire as it was at the height of the first lockdown, when only two or three flights operated each day. BA continued to fly to and from Heathrow during that period, but not every day.

Only one of the flights arriving at Nice on Tuesday – from Paris – was operated by easyJet Europe, which last year was the dominant carrier at NCE.

However, with coronavirus restrictions starting to ease, more routes are expected to return within the next few weeks.

EasyJet will restart flights to London Gatwick from December 18, although only two or three times a week, according to its current timetable.

BA, in the meantime will restart flights to Heathrow on Monday, December 7, according to its current schedule.

The express bus service, the 110 line from Menton via Monaco to Nice Airport, continues to operate (information correct as of November 24), despite very few passenger numbers. It temporarily stopped running during the first French lockdown.

At Gatwick Airport just two flights took off on November 24 and three landed.
