How can you save money on your Lyon - Edinburgh flight?

Airfare prices change throughout the sales period, and initially offered seats are usually available at more attractive rates. Conversely, the prices of the last available seats can significantly increase if the plane is nearly full. By booking your Lyon - Edinburgh flight in advance, you often have the opportunity to make significant savings.

You can also reduce your expenses by maintaining a certain level of flexibility in your departure and return dates. From one week to another, or even from one day to another, ticket prices can experience significant fluctuations. Early planning for your trip provides you with greater flexibility to find the best fare options.

How can you save time upon your arrival at Lyon Airport?

Online check-in, offered by the majority of airlines, including easyJet, allows you to save valuable time.

Security checks at the airport are often associated with extended waiting times, especially on days with high traffic. Do you want to speed up your passage through security gates? Our fast-track service gives you priority access through dedicated gates, ensuring a much quicker passage through security controls at Terminals 1 and 2.

Quickly finding a parking spot can sometimes be challenging, especially during peak periods. To ensure a hassle-free arrival at Lyon Saint-Exupéry, you have the option to reserve your parking space online. This option guarantees the availability of a parking space upon your arrival, with the most advantageous rates and a range of associated benefits. If you prefer to use public transportation, you can also book your Rhônexpress shuttle ticket online. This shuttle provides a direct and fast connection (less than 30 minutes) between Lyon Part-Dieu station, located in the city centre, and Lyon Saint-Exupéry Airport (LYS).

We also recommend you to carefully prepare your bags and suitcases and comply with the size and weight requirements specified by your airline. This will save you time during check-in.

What are the entry requirements for the United Kingdom?

Brexit has modified the entry requirements for the United Kingdom. French nationals can travel to the UK for a maximum stay of 6 months with a valid passport. A national identity card alone is no longer sufficient for entry into the country.
