What You Must Know About Paris To Sardinia Flights
Flight duration and costs
The duration of flights from Paris to Sardinia varies depending on the airports of departure and arrival but is usually around two hours long – if it’s a direct flight, of course. In the case of a non–direct flight, the travel’s duration may increase considerably, depending on the layovers.

Where do Paris to Sardinia flights land?
Of the three Sardinian airports, direct flights from Paris to Sardinia land in Cagliari Elmas and in Olbia Costa Smeralda. There are no direct flight options to Alghero Fertilia.
Cagliari Elmas is the airport of the capital city of Sardinia. It’s the most trafficked airport all year round and serves a huge number of cities, both Italian and European. It gets, of course, busier during the summer, because Cagliari (which is only a few kilometers away and can be reached by train via the airport’s station) is located in an excellent area, nearby stunning beaches, and ancient ruins.

Olbia Costa Smeralda
Olbia Costa Smeralda is the second most important airport in Sardinia and gets especially busy during the summer months. Olbia is literally a few minutes’ drive from the airport and is the gateway to Costa Smeralda: when summer comes, Olbia airport becomes 10 times busier!

If you want to fly to Alghero, you won’t have the choice of a direct flight. Alghero is a Catalan city on the North-Western side of Sardinia.
It is indeed a nice place to visit, quite different from all the other cities on the island. Its airport is not the most crowded, but it still serves a good amount of cities and people, especially the tourists aiming for a holiday in the area.
