Over the last few years there has been an explosion of cheap flights (some as low one cent plus airport taxes) to selected locations in France. Airlines like RyanAir and easyJet are now offing daily flights to such well know French tourist destinations, as Paris, the French Alps and Toulouse.
These cheap flights often arrive at out of the way unknown airports. That before the low cost airlines arrived where little used. For example RyanAir’s flights to Paris arrive at the Beauvais-Tille Airport, a good 50 miles and an hour and a half bus ride north of Paris.
The Beauvais Airport is a small regional airport typical of those used by no thrills airlines like RyanAir. You get what you pay for, space is limited and part of the terminal is a tent. Never the less the Beauvais Airport has everything that an airport needs. There is friendly staff, restaurant and bar, overnight parking and of course because it small you don’t have to walk a lot to get to your flight coach sportif paris.
The best way to get to Beauvais Airport is with the regular shuttle service. The coach service between Beauvais Airport and Paris-Porte Maillot is timed to the flight schedule. Buses leave from Paris – Porte Maillot 3 three hours before each departure and from Beauvais Airport 20 minutes after each arrival.
Is Beauvais Airport right for you? That all depends, the flights can be a great value at times. Just know what you are getting into, you need to add 15 euros and about an hour and a half to each way (the cost and travel time of the coach). Also make sure there are not any other cheap flights going to another Paris airport.
