Lyon Airport Mini Guide

 Lyon Airport (LYS) is also known as the Lyon Saint Exupery Airport, and it serves the Rhone Alpes region. Lyon airport is a little way outside the centre of Lyon and many passengers arriving there choose car hire Lyon Airport as we offer excellent value vehicles. Many carriers have flights to Lyon from all over Europe but the largest carrier, operating from the UK too, is easyJet who fly from Gatwick, Stansted, Bristol and Edinburgh.

This two-runway airport is well connected by public transport including the TGV train but tourists on holiday usually want the freedom that comes with having their own hire car and the ability to stop and sightsee whenever they want.
