Good to Know
Despite its name, Paris Beauvais Airport is 85 KM (53 miles) northwest of Paris, and some reviewers warn that transportation to and from the city can be tricky. Additionally, the area hotels sometimes become fully occupied, a situation that has left some travellers stranded without a place to stay.
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. If you have some time to spare please write a review, send a tip or share photos to help future travellers.
