The BA118 Mont-de-Marsan has a long enough runway (3,600m) but according to the article, not strong enough to withstand the weight of a 747.
TLS is a bit further East so maybe not as convenient as BOD.
LDE (Tarbes-Lourdes) is closer to Biarritz and could definitely work in terms of runway length (3,000m) but then there wouldn't be enough room for all the VIP jets to park during the summit as most ramp space is taken by stored wide bodies (A340, A380,etc.).

The summit being organized in France by French authorities, the airfields will have to be in France?
