Branch information
To reach the French side of the airport, go up to the check-in level after collecting your luggage and follow the “destination France” signs. Then go through customs (next to the Air France ticket counters).
Car rental is next to the arrivals area in a separate building. Follow the “car rental” signs. Car hire return is on level 1 in the P51 car park – again this is signposted. Shuttles run regularly from this car park from 5 am to 11 pm. You’ll find information on shuttle arrivals in the service desk area and a map in the P51 car park for locating Avis.
The airport is around 7 miles from the city centre and can be reached by car in around 25 minutes. It is also well positioned for easy access to France via the A40 motorway, to destinations such as Grenoble, Chambéry and Annecy as well as Lyon and Dijon.
It has also earned the title of “skiing airport”, ideally positioned for most resorts in the French and Swiss Alps. Ski resorts within easy distance include Châtel, Courchevel, Flaine, Val d’Isère, Megève, Morzine, Chamonix, Avoriaz, Les Arcs, Val Thorens, Tignes, Valmorel, Verbier and Villars.
