If you're looking at Strasbourg flights, it's perfectly normal
because you probably think that the Strasbourg Entzheim airport is the
largest airport in Alsace...
But it's not.
flights to Strasbourg are likely to cost you more than flying into
other airports. But if convenience is more important than price, it
could be the way to go for you.
And if you're planning on staying in Strasbourg or northern Alsace, it will be very convenient for you.
But if you're planning on spending most of your time outside of Strasbourg...
as closer to the center of Alsace along the wine road and its more
famous villages, you won't get any extra benefit out of flying into
To give you an idea of how big (or more accurately how small) the region of Alsace is...
You can drive from Wissembourg (the very top) to Basel, Switzerland (near the very bottom) in about 3 to 4 hours...
And that's mostly on highways.
So flying to Strasbourg will not make any huge changes in your travel times because Alsace is a very small region.
