LIG Airport Overview

limoges airport guideTo help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Limoges Airport.

What to Expect

Limoges Airport (code: LIG) has a tiny, modern terminal that offers service to a few regional destinations. Facilities are basic, with a restaurant, a snack bar and a shop. WiFi helps pass the time.

Where to Sleep

Spending the night here is not possible due to the airport’s limited operating hours, closing by 9:30PM most nights and 5:00PM on Saturdays. For uninterrupted sleep, a hotel is located directly across from the terminal entrance. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.

Covid-19 Update

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all services and times listed below are subject to change. Some services and facilities may remain closed or operate with reduced hours.  Airport tips and suggestions in this guide and elsewhere on the site were written before March 2020 and may no longer be valid. If you are planning to sleep in the public area of the terminal overnight, have a back-up plan! We’ve heard from a few travellers at other airports and they were not permitted to stay overnight. We’re not sure if that will apply to this airport, until a reader lets us know the current situation. We will start updating all of our guides in October 2021.  To help us with this massive update, you can add or update information or write a review and submit photos and airport tips.

In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.  For more information on Europe’s Schengen Area, click here.
