Great little airport, and nimes is a nice place.

Probably the smallest airport I have ever used, 3 departures per day (only ryanair), One gate area.

One person could probably manage to run the whole airport airport (ATC/Check in agent/bordercontrol/security/fireman/baggage handler, cleaner and dispatcher).
