Lyon (St. Exupery) Airport has 3 terminals. Easyjet and some smaller airlines work from a satellite terminal, the rest from inside the other 2 linked sections.
Monsieur Exupery was a pilot who flew off one foggy day, never to be seen again but inherited a Sainthood.
The airport works well until bad weather brings diverted flights to land here and creates a backlog of passengers. Some of the parking is more than a stroll with a trolley at busy periods.
The airport has a Bus and Rail link to the Main Station (Part Dieu) in Lyon.
The transfer from Lyon Airport to Meribel is by Motorway for the majority of the journey.
Unfortunately this is the connecting route from Northern Europe and also carries traffic into both the French and Italian Alps.
The journey is 190 km and should take 2¼ hours.
During holidays and weekends be prepared for a much longer Transfer.
