Location of airport in Nouvelle-Aquitaine region
Bergerac Dordogne Périgord Airport (French: Aéroport de Bergerac Dordogne Périgord) (IATA: EGC, ICAO: LFBE) is an airport serving Bergerac, a commune of the Dordogne department (formerly the Périgord province) in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region of France. The airport is located 3 kilometres (1.6 NM) south-southeast of Bergerac. It is also known as Bergerac-Roumanière Airport.
The airport is situated at an elevation of 52 metres (171 ft) above mean sea level. It has one paved runway designated 10/28 which measures 2,205 by 45 metres (7,234 ft × 148 ft). It also has a parallel unpaved runway with a grass surface measuring 770 by 60 metres (2,526 ft × 197 ft).
The Departures area is a modern air-conditioned building with glass walls to both land and air sides. It is all on one (ground) level, allowing easy passage from car or taxi to aeroplane. Just inside the entrance are six check in desks in two areas. These are followed by a single security area and, later, two passport and customs booths before a large seated waiting area with three gates. The gates are simple doors at ground level. This area does not have a shop or restaurant but does have a coffee machine and toilets.
The Arrivals area, on the other hand, is a large metal shed. Passengers wind through it to a double passport kiosk, while passing the single baggage carousel. Exit is through a single set of automatic doors where those meeting passengers congregate in the open air. Functional would be a diplomatic description, though at least distances are very short.
In 2016 Bergerac airport created a larger car park and set down area for visitors, passengers and car hire companies. The new roof is completely covered in solar cells to provide eco-friendly electricity. In addition road traffic was moved back from the terminal and all car hire companies were allocated matching offices beside each other immediately outside the arrivals terminal. The layout of these facilities is clear on Google Satellite
