With 8 million passengers and over 120 direct destinations, Lyon-Saint Exupery has one of the strongest potentials for development in Europe. It is poised to become the 2nd leading point of access in France and to accomodate 25 million passengers by 2030.

Lyon-Saint Exupéry has the best advantages to develop its City Airport model: a policy of constant innovation, a standard of service recognized by the ACI Europe association of airport operators (Best Airport Awards 2008 and 2010), over 1,000 “airport helpers” to inform and guide passengers, service committments shared with the airlines, a strong potential for development thanks to land reserves amongst the largest in Europe, the only airport that has applied the French Environmental Charter with a local action plan for the next 4 years, and finally, the efficiency of its rail and road interconnecting network. 

Lyon-Saint Exupéry is a multimodal hub that is easily and quickly accessible via several motorways, a passenger TGV high-speed train station and soon one for freight (Carex), a bus station and the new Rhônexpress tram-train link that brings the airport less than 30 minutes away from Lyon. Totally interconnected, the airport is the fastest point of access to the Alps and the best starting point for passengers from south-eastern France.
