Lyon Airport opens new terminal to low cost carriers

The first passengers have traveled through Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport’s new terminal after it opened its doors to the first low cost carriers.

Terminal 1 Hall B is being built into the existing Terminal 1 and doubles the size of the airport. The new Terminal 1, which will be fully opened during the summer, will cover 70,000m² and increase the airport’s annual capacity to 14 million passengers. Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport handled 10 million passengers in 2016.

The low-cost carriers Air Arabia, EasyJet, Transavia and Pegasus have started operating from Hall B. Conventional airlines will operate from the new terminal from September.

A new entrance and walkway to the terminal is being built, as well as changes to the road links. Hall B will feature a 10,000m² shopping area, restaurant and relaxation area.

The expansion work also includes the destruction of the old check-in area in Terminal 3 to create a link to Terminal 1.
