New Terminal 1

From 30 March To 11 April 2017

Opening Arrivals for Low Cost Flights : AirArabia, easyJet, Pegasus, Transavia

I am a passenger on low-cost flight: what will change?

  • For the outbound journey, check in at Terminal 3 as before. Board in the satellite terminal where there are shops (Relay, Aélia Duty Free and Food Village),
    Aim to arrive 2 hours before your flight leaves to avoid a last-minute sprint! 
  • When you get back, disembark and collect your luggage in the new Terminal. Leave via the new forecourt. Remember to inform the person who is coming to collect you.

    Our tip: -> follow the “T3” signs in place in the airport.
    During this time of change, airport staff will be available to help you and there will be more signs to guide you. Your airline will provide you with the information required for your flight.
