The not so close Paris-Vatry-Disney Airport

Budget airline Ryanair has launched services from an airfield in the Champagne region of France  90 miles from Paris and 70 miles from Disneyland Paris  but that has not stopped the  budget airline naming its latest operating airport – ‘Paris-Vatry-Disney’.

But despite Ryanair marketing the airport as the ideal gateway to the French capital and Disneyland Paris, it is in fact closer to the Belgian border than the Eiffel Tower and Main Street U.S.A.

When booking flights online, customers are told that Disneyland Paris is with ‘within easy reach’ from Vatry Airport – but that easy reach is about 70 miles away.

At the moment flights operate between ‘Paris-Vatry-Disney’ and Marseille, Porto and Stockholm, but if the route proves successful, then flights from Britain could follow.
