2 daily coach services connect Toulouse-Blagnac Airport to Andorra,, as that country does not have a commercial airport.

Accidents and incidents

  • Douglas C-47A F-BCYX of Trans Europe Air was reported to have been damaged beyond repair at Toulouse-Blagnac sometime during 1978.
  • On 29 January 1988, Inter Cargo Service Flight 1004, operated by Vickers Vanguard F-GEJF crashed on take-off when take-off was attempted with only three fully operable engines.
  • On 15 November 2007 an Airbus A340-600 due to be delivered to Etihad ran into a concrete blast fence during an engine test at the Airbus factory at Toulouse Blagnac International Airport, France. This was due to the crew not following proper test procedures, raising all four engines to maximum thrust while the wheels were unchocked. The attempt to steer away from the wall resulted in decreased braking power. Five people were injured and the aircraft was written off.
