Caen Airport Mini Guide

The Airport
Caen, otherwise known as Caen-Carpiquet Airport is a small regional airport found 6km west of the city of Caen. It has a single car park in front of the terminal building divided up into short and long term parking. Last year nearly 77,000 passengers used Caen Airport for internal flights to Paris, Lyon and Nice.

caen airport

How do I get There?
Only two airlines fly into Caen, Air France and Airlinair. Both operate scheduled domestic flights but the flight to Nice is seasonal.

Getting to Your Destination From the Airport
The airport is just outside the Caen ring road with direct access via the airport road to RN13. On your return journey, look out for the junction signposted Carpiquet. There are no trains from the airport; the nearest station is in Caen itself. Local buses stop at the airport before heading off into central Caen although the buses are infrequent due to the low number of flights. Taxis are a good option as the distance into the city is small and the fares reasonable.

caen airport rental cars

For those wishing to travel on a more regular basis around the Caen area, a hire car is the most practical solution. The companies’ desks can be located immediately after you exit arrivals, between the two doors to the outside of the terminal. Because of the low number of flights and passengers to Caen, pre-booking a car is essential to ensure the car of your choice. There is not usually too much of a worry over queues at the car hire desks as most passengers seem to have their own transport.

Public Information
There’s an airport information desk in the public area next to the baggage reclaim. Tourist information can also be obtained from the desk. Any items of lost luggage should be reported here as there is no dedicated desk for it.

Facilities Available at the Airport
There are no banks operating at Caen Airport but there is an ATM dispensing Euros. Shopping is limited to a shop selling gadgets to do with flying and a local produce shop. As the airport serves domestic routes only there are no duty free facilities.

There are two eating establishments there. La Caravelle Brasserie is more of a cafeteria with metal tables and a self-service counter. Of more note is Le Grilladin which is accessible from outside the terminal and which offers good regional food served in a nice atmosphere.

Persons requiring first aid should notify a member of the airport staff who will take you to a trained first aider. There are no Wi-Fi facilities at Caen Airport at this time.

What if I Need Special Assistance?
Assistance is available for disabled travellers but it is recommended that you inform your airline before travelling so that necessary steps can be taken to assist you. The airport conforms to EU law on disability provision.
