Motorists can take the D902 highway (Voie le Fil d'Ariane) from central Toulouse and be onsite in about 12 to 15 minutes. However, peak hour traffic can slow this journey down considerably. The D902 connects with the D901, which in turn links with the airport.
Shuttle buses depart from the Arrivals exit and head into the centre of Toulouse at 20 minute intervals. Getting from the terminal to the city usually takes in the region of 15 minutes. There are four stops along the shuttle route.
There are no direct trains to the airport. However, Flybus shuttles take passengers to the nearby Matabiau Station. From here, connections to the public transit system of Toulouse can be made.
Taxis are to be found on the Arrivals level of the terminal. Rates are fixed according to the destination, with a higher tariff for night travel. Taxis can take passengers to Toulouse, as well as surrounding communities such as Colomiers and Mirail.
