Grenoble airport (aka Grenoble Alpes Isére) is a small international airport based in the Isére department of France.
The airfield was first used in the 1930's as a military airport and wasn't used commercially until the late 1960's.
Now Grenoble airport welcomes over half a million passengers each year focusing mainly on the ski season. Offering just under 20 different destinations, with over half in the United Kingdom, Grenoble airport isn't a bad choice for your French ski holiday this year.
Following the opening of the updated terminal at Grenoble airport in 2002, it can now accommodate up to 1 million passengers and is comfortable and offers high level security throughout.
It has one runway catering for all arrivals and departures. It is a very small airport but the arrivals and departures have been vastly improved, providing an extremely simple route from the check-in and baggage drop through security to the Grenoble airport departures lounge, where you can find Séquoia Restaurant Bar and small duty free.
Even though the airport is small it offers a great flight choice for UK passengers throughout the ski season because many big airlines fly there.
Grenoble airport airlines include: British Airways, Easyjet, Jet2, Ryanair, TUI Airways (previously Thomson) and Thomas Cook Airlines.
The airport sits 40 kilometres northwest of Grenoble city and is easy to access by your Whiterides transfer driver.
The airport is so small that your driver can park close to the main door for drop off and pick up.
When you arrive, a member of the Whiterides team will be waiting for you with the 'party name' on a board.
