Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport


Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport (French: Aéroport Lyon Saint-Exupéry) (IATA: LYS, ICAO: LFLL), formerly known as Lyon Satolas Airport, is one of the two airports located in the agglomeration of Lyon, France. The airport was named in 2000 in honour of the French writer and pilot Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, a native of Lyon, on the centenary of his birth.

The airport lies in Colombier-Saugnieu, 11 NM (20 km; 13 mi) east southeast of Lyon city centre. Its two runways are aligned north-south. It is an important transport facility for the entire Rhône-Alpes region. Coach links connect the airport with the centre of Lyon and other towns in the area including Chambéry and Grenoble.

Railway transport in the form of Rhônexpress began in August 2010 and links the TGV rail station of Lyon Part-Dieu with the Gare de Lyon Saint-Exupéry in less than 30 minutes.
