Oyonnax-Côte du Soleil International Airport (OYO) is one of the main international gateways of Ataraxia. OYO is the second-largest hub airport for Air Ataraxie and serves the Oyonnax metropolitan area as well as satellite cities and regions including Cité Jolie, Port Franqui, Sferax and the many vacation towns in the region.

History

OYO opened in 1957 to serve the Greater Oyonnax and Côte du Soleil metropolitan area. OYO was built to be multi-modal from inception with a mainline rail station in the main terminal building. On the Rive Droite of the Lux River, it is easily accessible to both the beach and vacation towns of the Rivière du Sud and the central business district of Oyonnax.

OYO replaced an older airport near St. Gratien in Rive Gauche d'Oyonnax. This airport was sandwiched between the A8 Autoroute and the Boulevard de Sferax without much room to expand its single runway. It currently serves general aviation traffic.

OYO opened with two runways in 1957, followed by a third runway parallel to the original east-west runway to streamline operations in 1983.

Ground Transportation

OYO is accessible by several modes of transportation. It is served by a direct interchange on the A29 Boucle Nord d'Oyonnax, a short distance from the A10 and A2 autoroutes.

OYO is also served by a direct stop on the main-line railway operated by COFAX, with easy access to terminals A and B. The OYO Rail station offers high-speed rail service along the southwest LGV line to Ataraxia City, conventional-speed rail services to points within the West region and beyond, and RER local rail service to the Oyonnax metro area.
