Located in the south of France, approximately 45km (28 miles) northwest of the small town of Grenoble, Grenoble-Isere Airport is a popular gateway for skiers making their way to the French Alps. With a handful of low-cost airlines serving the airport – Ryanair, easyJet, Wizz Air, transavia.com – it is frequented mostly during the winter months.
Although a fairly new terminal, passengers often complain about congestion and delays, long queues and disorganised procedures – frustrations that are only getting worse as passenger numbers rise. Plans to extend the building and improve facilities are underway.
The airport is surrounded by green fields and snowy mountains; there are wonderful views from the terminal building. Airport staff members are helpful and friendly. Your experience at Grenoble-Isere should be pleasant as long as you’re equipped with plenty of patience.
