Lyon Airport Reviews

Lyon–Saint Exupéry Airport (French: Aéroport Lyon Saint-Exupéry) (IATA: LYS, ICAO: LFLL), formerly known as Lyon Satolas Airport, is the international airport of Lyon, the third-biggest city in France and an important transport facility for the entire Rhône-Alpes region. It lies in Colombier-Saugnieu, 11 nautical miles (20 km; 13 mi) east southeast of Lyon city centre.

The Lyon Airport was inaugurated by President Valéry Giscard d’Estaing on 12 April 1975 and opened to passengers a week later. It was designed to replace the old Lyon–Bron Airport which could not be extended as it was located in an urban area.

In 2011, Lyon Airport served 8,437,141 passengers, making it France’s fourth busiest airport after Charles de Gaulle, Orly and Nice airports.

The Lyon Airport consists of three terminals and two runways aligned north–south. The airport has 18 jetways in all three terminals. Terminal 3 is used by low-cost airlines and has very basic facilities.
