Paris Beauvais Tille Airport (BVA)

Paris Beauvais Airport, with official code of BVA, is located to the north of Beauvais in the community of Tillé. It is Paris’ third airport, after Charles de Gaulle and Paris Orly. The airport serves mainly budget airlines, and is referred to as the ‘low cost airport’ of Paris. There are no transatlantic or intercontinental flights handled.

Beauvais carries over two million passengers each year on budget airlines such as Blue Air, Ryanair and Wizz Air. The continuous growth of this airport has been mainly due to the increase in services from Ryanair. Recently they have introduced new routes from Alicante, Marseille, Pisa, Bremen and Valencia. The budget airlines favour the smaller and less familiar airports for their arrivals and departures. The airport is one of these smaller airports. There are over 20 scheduled flights each day, and for budget travelers, it is an alternative to the larger Charles de Gaulle and Orly.

Even though it is a smaller airport, it is equipped with everything an airport needs. There are car hire facilities, shuttle bus services and a taxi rank. The airport staff are friendly and there is a restaurant and bar, and a shopping area. There is adequate parking areas situated within walking distance of the airport, including overnight parking. Beauvais is equipped for disabled passengers and has baby changing facilities. 

It can take an hour to an hour and a half to reach Beauvais from Paris. This may sound long, but is can take even longer to get to Charles de Gaulle or Paris Orly due to congested traffic conditions.

Currently, Beauvais is able to handle medium-sized passenger jets only in good visibility conditions. The main runway, 13-31, does not have an ILS to CAT III standard, which means that landing can be difficult in adverse weather conditions. It is especially difficult when there is fog over the airport. Improvements to the landing equipment will be made from the 3rd to 9th of June 2009. New ILS CAT III equipment will be installed and the airport will be closed during this time. This equipment should help avoid delays due to bad weather conditions.
