Grenoble airport guide
Grenoble airport started life as a military aviation field in 1930 of just 1200 meters. It became operational at the initiative of the Chamber of Commerce ahead of the 1968 Olympics and then expansion began with the building of the first terminal in 1972.
Today Grenoble handles around 500,000 passengers a year and many airlines landing their planes on the tarmac every hour. The airport has a selection of shops and bars to keep passengers busy during the check in procedure including a souvenir shop, Tobacconist, Newspaper shop and of course duty free in the boarding lounge.
The pick up and drop off areas are very close to the terminal with 10 minutes free and 5 euros for 11 minutes to an 1 hour. Maximum height for this area is 2.10 meters so we can squeeze our minibuses under this to make walking time to and from the terminal minimal.
