Grenoble Alpes Isère airport opens its new business aviation terminal

  • New terminal for business aviation and high-end customers
  • Fourth boarding lounge in the commercial terminal to improve passenger experience

The new business aviation terminal at Grenoble Alpes Isère airport has opened for winter season.

Built over two floors, the new terminal provides customers and crews of business and private flights with a new area to relax ahead of their flight. Services include comfortable waiting lounges for passengers, a designated area for children to play and a crew lounge. The airport continues to partner with carefully selected businesses to offer high quality catering, limousine transfers, hotel bookings and access to helicopter services.

Renovation work at the airport also included the addition of a fourth boarding lounge in the commercial terminal. The new 200m2 lounge offers more comfort for passengers and access to refreshments while they wait for their flight. New signage was also installed throughout the airport to help customers navigate to the shops, restaurants and gates.

The airport expects traffic to increase in 2017, thanks to the opening of new routes bringing the total number of weekly flights into Grenoble from the UK to 26 during the ski season. In addition, the airport will be operating flights to and from seven additional destinations including Poland, Lithuania and Belgium.

“These improvements are the result of close collaboration between the Department of Isère and VINCI Airports. Together, we are committed to attracting new customers and airlines to the region, and this investment is essential in allowing the airport to meet their needs,” said Vincent Le Parc, Director (France) of VINCI Airports.

“We are delighted with the improvements made to the airport. It is a key gateway to the Alps and, as such, it has been renamed ‘Grenoble Alpes Isère’”, added Jean-Pierre Barbier, President of the Department of Isère.

The new facilities will be used by business customers as well as private aviation clientele on their way to the ski slopes.  The resorts of Aime, Alpe d’Huez, Bourg d’Oisans, Bourg Saint-Maurice, Chamrousse, Les Deux Alpes Les Menuires, Moûtiers, Saint-Martin de Belleville, Saint-Foy, Tignes, Val d’Isère and Val Thorens are a short drive from the airport.
