I am fairly well travelled but I can say with confidence that this is the worst airport I have ever been to. I was on time for my flight and queued with the rest to get my boarding card scanned before proceeding through to security. There was only one staff member scanning so the queue moved very slowly. Considering there were 4 flights leaving within an hour of each other, one would have expected more staff given the volume of passengers. I was concerned that it was getting closer and closer to the time for the gates to close but at no point was my flight called to the front nor was there a warning on the TV screen so I continued to wait patiently. When I finally got to the front of the queue at 10.02 (the gates officially closed at 10.00 and flight was due to leave at 10.30) I was refused entry. I tried to explain that I had been waiting but was ignored. Knowing how small this airport is and the fact that all the gates are in the same area, it would have taken me only a couple of minutes to walk through and make my way onto the plane with my hand luggage but absolutely no regard was given to my situation and not a single staff member even attempted to try and assist me. After speaking to my friend who lived in France for some time, she told me that the same thing happened when she took a flight late last year. 10 or so passengers missed their flight the same way that I did so clearly there are real issues with how they manage things at Beauvais. I have used Ryanair and this airport many times but after that experience, I vow never to again. Worst customer service I have ever experienced.

Incredibly, it's getting worse. Our flight lost its take-off slot because of insufficient security personnel. After a decade, still no bus link to Rouen, Dieppe or Amiens. Seething queues milling in all directions, including passengers for Poland lost in the wrong terminal. Even the staff admit to being ashamed of the whole hideous mess. This airport has now been used by Ryanair for a quarter of a century - how long does it take to get it up to par? Why doesn't Ryanair move to Rouen-Boos airport, which is just as near to Paris (ie an hour) and currently empty?

I use this airport (Terminal 2) on a monthly basis because of the cost of flying. The shuttle service from Paris is good but allow extra time during peak season. Seating in the departure lounge is very limited so I tend to delay my entry there to the minimum. If you have children then you have a problem as there is nothing here for them, worse still if your flight is delayed. I've not really had a problem here as I travel solo but this weekend gone I was refused a beer at the bar inside the departures area as I did not want food, this is a first for me not just at this airport but anywhere in the world. I obviously was not aware of this before going through. I agree with previous comments on here that it is expensive to buy food, snacks and drinks also consider the seating area at the bar/restaurant is cramped.

I would have to agree with D Parent 's comments on this airport. I have travelled Ryanair a lot but I have never set foot in what must be the worst airport they fly into. We fly out of Terminal 1. The airport is well sign posted from the road. We took the bus and it dropped us beside it. The check-in area was basic but efficient. My tip to anyone is do not go though security until about an hour before your flight is due to leave as once you get though security there is nothing there. Only enough seats for around 50 people in the departure lounge. We stupidly thought that maybe there would be better food in the departure lounge. All there is, is a small Illy cafe which cost us 12 euros for 2 bags of crisps and 2 cokes. I know airport prices are bad but that took the biscuit. The departure lounge is so small and there was around 600 people there with only seats for 50 of them. One other poster said this airport reminded him of a barn, I'd agree with that. If you can use Orly or De Gaule. The toilets were filthy too, my wife refused to use them when she saw them.

One of the worst airport I have been to. Too small for the amount of travellers landing there via cheap airline companies. Queuing for the doors to open to go into the passport area, queuing for passport, queuing for the bus to Paris and then on the return trip, queuing for check-in, queuing for security, queuing for passport. I am not talking small amount of queuing! But I guess these are the type of things to expect when you travel cheap.

Since my last review, the security queues have not improved - if anything they are worse. I stood in line for 1 hour! Consequently I did not have time to visit the airport shops, so the airport is in fact losing money by not increasing security facilities. On the bright side, there are now private car park operators off-site which brings welcome competition.

This airport is pretty far from Paris (one hour by bus) so give yourself plenty of time. There is a dedicated bus service, which is nice. The computer ticket machine would not accept my debit card since it is an American card, not European, so I had to wait until the teller showed up to buy a ticket with cash. Besides that, bus service was fine. When I got to the airport, I had to, wait for the screen to tell which counter to go to for my flight, then wait for an airline representative to show up. The line for passport control/security was quite long, so I was nervous about missing my flight. Once I got through, the terminal was quite small, and the gate was right there. All in all, a perfectly reasonable experience.

BVA-TSR. The shuttle bus in Paris are something organised but when I arrived there I had to queue and so many people were waiting there that I feared not being able to get in. At 10 AM no bus were at the starting point but at 10.15 AM, 13 buses had arrived. In Beauvais, low cost companies have this tiny box where you have to put your luggage to be able to get in the plane. There are people who check and ask every passenger to fit their hand luggage in the box, and if it doesn't send you back to the company. The security people are nice and welcoming, it's just a pain to queue for 100 meters going along bags' check, identity check and security check. The airport is small but with the new terminal, there are more space and room for passengers waiting in the departure gate.

Dublin from Beauvais airport 4 yrs after my last experience, but that was a nightmare, I will not use this airport again and will continue flying from CDG with either Aer Lingus or Air France. Staff are not polite and not welcoming. Check in started 10 mins late no information given, when staff arrived they didn't apologise, no "hello" or smile, they don't even look at you when talking to you. Once check in is finished, you have to queue for passport check's (they check your passport 4 times in 10 meters). Waiting area is awful along with boarding the plane. They are making people queue for ages whereas staff on plane where waiving at the 2 airport staff (that are suppose to allow people board the plane but where to busy talking to each other). There were 2 accesses to the plane (at the front and at the back), one plane hostess was shouting for 10 mins to let the people board at back of plane as the front of the plane was too busy. I have flown from so many airports in the world and many French airports, but I couldn't believe what I was experiencing. So many passengers also where shocked with the level of incompetence from staff. So folks, just be prepared when flying from Beauvais and it is really not worth any longer.

Terrible - will not use this airport ever again no matter how cheap the flight! Our flight was at 3pm and we were at the airport before 1.15pm but nearly missed it. They do not seem to be able to cope and why do they have to check your passport 4 times before you even get on the plane. No queues just people herded together for 1 man to take 5 minutes to look at each passport with no regard to the mounting mass of people or that flights were waiting to take off. Chaos and stressed out passengers. It was a relief to get home and this is not what you need after a lovely holiday in Paris. Be warned too because the shuttle buses only operate at set times. We got to the collection point for 12 noon to be told that there would not be another bus until 1.15pm which would mean we and a load of other passengers who arrived at the same time and after us, would not make it for our flights. Had to share a taxi to the airport with other passengers and it cost every passenger EU35 and no refund if you had bought a return ticket for the shuttle. You are not told this when you buy the return ticket and you miss the signs when you arrive as you head across the car park to get the metro or train to your destination. A lot of unhappy people, so don't get caught out with the shuttle bus.

There is now a second terminal which has eased the overcrowding. It's a very short walk from the long-term car park, which is great - except that the cost of parking for my next trip is treble the air fare. Still no bus to Beauvais from Rouen, hardly surprising since I've only been lobbying for one for nine years. You know how things move in France - Rouen tourism office says 'we have enough tourists, we don't need a bus to Beauvais' (an hour away!) The cost of Beauvais parking is now driving me back to flying Aer Lingus from CDG when possible, which is more cheaply accessible by train + bus.

The wait area for check in seemed more like a cafeteria with dirty iron chairs than an airport. Maybe I'm spoiled because I'm used to airports having wifi, decent and enough places to sit, and a heating system? It was freezing. When we could finally check in and proceed to security, people were so crowded together into the unorganized mob inching toward the boarding pass checker I could feel breath on my head. It took 40 minutes to get through security - only 3 lanes were open to accommodate the herd of cattle pushing and standing uncomfortably close to each other. The other side of security was not much better, with no place to plug in a laptop and only one cafe and a duty free store. Flight was delayed an hour and a half. No tunnels to get into the plane so we were freezing waiting in the line. Hugely uncomfortable. Return trip to Beauvais was more bearable because we were just passing through, but my luggage came onto the conveyor belt soaked through from the rain.

Used to be a great airport - even had the free parking that makes so many French airports a joy - but now Beauvais is a victim of its own success. Chaotically overcrowded, expensive, confrontational and stressful. The staff do their best but the overcrowding simply frazzles everyone. Parking often costs more than airfare. There's still no bus to Rouen, Dieppe or anywhere bar Paris. Seating is inadequate and even with the new extension + pre-printed boarding cards, the check-in queues are a nightmare. Rows with Ryanair over baggage are never- ending and it's not uncommon to see passengers in tears. I've started to use CDG in preference - getting there is cheaper than parking at Beauvais for any trip of more than a few days' duration, and Aer Lingus is a far more restful option than Ryanair. Sad to say all this - used to love using this airport but now dread it. Wonder if management cares about passenger comments?

Beauvais was utter chaos when I travelled from there to Dublin. We arrived 2 and a half hours before departure and still almost missed the flight. Security were so slow, it seemed like it was intentional. Why do the bag checkers need to look at everyone's passport when its already been checked by immigration. Loads of people missed the flight. Chaos.

From Beauvais Airport, you can take one of the shuttle buses to Paris. The journey takes between 45 minutes and an hour, depending on traffic. If you arrive on a busy day make sure you have your ticket bought before you land, or you might have to wait for a later bus. To get to Disney, it can take up to 3 hours!Take an airport transfer service.

This once great little airport has outgrown itself. When there were just 2 or 3 flights a day this airport was a pleasure to use. The problem is that there are now many flights and further expansion is planned. This would be fine if the facilities were developed in parallel. I arrived one hour before my flight, having checked-in online to find the car parks at near saturation point. A helpful attendant invited me to leave my car at the end of a row but outside a normal parking space. In the terminal there was a very long queue to go through passport control & security. This was because insufficient staff were on duty for the number of passengers. This is inexcusable as surely the authorities must know the number of passengers expected beforehand. it also represents a loss for the airport as many passengers - myself included no longer had time to visit the shops. Although at the airport one hour before the flight I only boarded 10 minutes before departure due to these inadequacies. The other major problem at this airport is access. If your destination/departure point is Paris there's no problem. If it's anywhere else there is virtually no other choice than to use a car and be subjected to the monopolistic practices of using the airport car parks. There is a bus to Beauvais, but its infrequency is as good as to render it useless. This airport needs to invest fast in additional parking, quicker security and larger departure lounges. The bus service to Beauvais needs to be increased to at least one bus per hour to allow the surrounding communities to benefit from what is after all Beauvais airport rather than Paris airport.

We travelled to Paris from Dublin, I use a wheelchair and this was my first time to travel in a plane, as you can imagine I was very apprehensive on how I would manage. I have only commendation for the staff at Beauvais Airport and for the staff on the airport bus, they were fantastic, from the moment we came of the plane they were there to help my husband and I, and when we got to the bus the guys there were just as helpful, I would say from them all I got 5 star treatment. The bus was great, the driver and staff made sure that I was able to get on the bus and that I was comfortable, on both journeys, to and from the airport. I would have no hesitation in flying to Beauvais Airport or using the airport bus.

Do not go there when there are more than 5 flights going out in any one hour as there are only 4 gates. Departure Hall is a health and safety case. The volumes of passengers and the airport at peak times are incompatible with even the most basic service levels or safety. Surely these places have to undergo some basic inspections and approval. As for the bus to and from Port Maillot. They take only a little longer than some of the transfers to Orly or CDG though frequency can be an issue. They work fine but are best booked on line. Here's the rub if you save on the Ryaniar flight, consider the cost together with the bus fare you may find flying with another carrier to Orly and CDG cheaper all told!

A mixed experience. Fog meant that we didn't use BVA inbound, the flight was diverted to Lille. On our return we utilised the connecting bus service which worked well, though there was an argument about our tickets which we hadn't used when we arrived due to the diversion. Best idea is to purchase them at the time - you don't save anything by buying them online and could be lumbered with them if your plans have to change. Our flight departed at 22:50. Unfortunately, four other flights were also departing at round about the same time and Beauvais struggled to cope. The space available airside is limited and staff struggled to inject some order into those passing through security and passport control. The other side was just a seething mass of humanity with people sat on the floor or milling about waiting for their flight to be called. There was a duty free shop and a cafe but these could not provide respite from the hundreds of passengers awaiting departure. If you are lucky enough to be there at a less busy time I am sure that Beauvais will be a perfectly good little airport but it certainly could do with some sort of expansion to cope with increasing demand.

We found the airport excellent both when we arrived and departed. Staff were helpful and there were no delays. Do not use Paris Shuttle Services as we had a terrible experience. We waited an hour for our shuttle then managed to get someone in their office to be told he didn't know what had happened to our shuttle but would get another one of their drivers to speak to us at the airport. Eventually he found us to be told that our driver had forgotten us and that he would give us our money back then we would have to catch a bus going to Paris. With the hours wait then on the bus to bus park, walk to the metro which was 1 mile away, then change twice to get to our hotel. It took us 3 hours to get to our hotel after landing at Beauvais. On our return journey we waited just over an hour for the shuttle and were told by the hotel that as the shuttle company are obviously unreliable we will book you a taxi so that you will catch your flight. Just as we were waiting on a taxi the shuttle arrived at the hotel entrance. We cancelled the taxi as we had paid up front for the shuttle. The driver never even apologised and got us to airport 1 hour before the flight but it was a hair raising experience as he broke the speed limit most of the journey. So I would advise people not to book up and pay in advance for a shuttle.

Airport was wonderful - comfortable and easy access to your luggage after disembarking. BUT do not use ATA Beauvais shuttle service - it is uncomfortable, unsafe and took much longer than just using the Ryanair bus. Simply, the best transport out of the airport is to take the bus - the other options are either very expensive (private taxi) or a waste of time/money.

Be wary when paying up front for advertised pre-booked shuttle service such as parisshuttleservice.com. If they fail to appear then you are left with an expensive option of a private taxi plus the problem of getting your money back.

Arrived at Beauvais from Rome - great experience, luggage was there in a matter of 10 minutes and we boarded the bus to Paris within 15 minutes of debarking the aircraft- great. On the flight back check-in was fast (we arrived 90 minutes early and they had 2 lines open). Security was also fast. But then came a nightmare- they have 4 gates and there are no screens that tell you where your flight will be. They are all very close together so that, in our cast, there were about 400 people wondering where they have to line up. Shortly before boarding they tell you where to go, but you are squeezed in all the time- very unpleasant and stupid because they could change that easily. Also the bard at the gates take advantage of the new security measures and sell a 0,5 l bottle of water at 3€. More than next to the Eiffel tower! ALL employees we met were very friendly though.

There is now a ticket office in the bus park (can't quite call it a bus station yet) at Porte Maillot. You must buy your tickets there - they don't sell them on the bus anymore. So if you have to buy a ticket to Beauvais, I'd recommend getting to Porte Maillot 15 minutes earlier. There is a good map of the Porte Maillot area and directions of how to get to the Metro station, at www.hotelsreviewed.com/paris-porte-maillot- bus-metro.html

Beauvais Airport review by G McDonagh

20 April 2007   Customer Rating : n/a

As a family we have used Beauvais a number ot times during the past few years and have seen the changes that this airport has had over this time frame. When we used it first I thought that it was a great airport with the fact that the plane comes right up to the door and the luggage was there as soon as you arrived at the pickup point and you were away within 20 mins of arriving. The departure check in was also a dream and you could live with the "tent". Having just arrived back from our most recent trip I have now changed my mind. The airport is now a lot busier with more flights arriving and departing and quite frankly it is not geared up to handle the situation it finds itself in. The problem starts as soon as you arrive. The arrival area is quite small and the luggage conveyor is also quite small. Flights are nearly full and 100-150 people trying to get in to get their bags makes it quite tight. The conveyor soon fills up and with the short distance of travel before bags start to come around again leads to a lot of stopping and starting of the belt. On this occasion it did not effect us as we were in no hurry out of the airport as we were were staying in a local hotel (which was prebooked) for the night before heading on in the morning. The car hire pick up point is fine and we had no problems. This is the third or fourth time that we have picked up a hire car and have never had any problem. One point could be that all the car hire offices with the exception of Hertz close before the last flights arrive so you are limited to which company you can use if you arrive late. The departure hall is also very small with no information as to which check in gate that your flight will be at apart from the screens that are behind each desk which do not display any info until the flight is actually checking in. With the lines of passengers checking in for other flights this leads to mad scrambles from where you may have managed to find a seat (Which are not exactually in plentiful supply for the amount of people) to where your flight eventually checks in. The problem is the depth of the actual hall. The distance from the desk to the window means that the queue tends to turn down along the hall where it gets caugh up with the queue from the desk beside it. After you have checked in you need join the queue to go through the security check. This, you may feel is the same at every airport and is quite necessary and I do not have a problem with the check in itself. The problem is that at Beauvais there are not enough machines for the volumn of people passing through and also the area in which these checks are carried out is also quite small which leads to the large queue forming behind this. Having got through this you arrive in to the "new departure gates". This area still has no information regarding the particular gate that you will eventually board your plane until it actually opens for boarding. People start to queue where the think the flight will board only to find that they are at the wrong gate and another mad rust starts to get to the correct gate . Seeing as the gates are so close and when pass through the gate you walk to the plane, how difficult would it be to put the information up at the gate before the flight arrives so people as least have a chance of being in the right area. If you are traveling with Ryanair book the priority boarding option. It cuts out any messing around as you do not have to join the mad scramble to try to get near the front of the queue for getting on the plane. Ok if you are traveling alone but with children you want to get seats together. Familys with children no longer get priority when boarding the flights so you could end up being split up if you are unluckly to be further down the queue for boarding. The facilities in this "new area" leave a lot to be desired. The gents toilet was in need of a good clean, to the point that I would be reluctant to let the children use it. The cost at the "cafe" inside the departure area is a complete rip off and now that you cannot bring any thing through the security gate you are at their mercy. €3:90 for a small bottle of coke and not much cheaper for a "large coffee" which is in fact a slightly bigger then normal paper cut which is not even full. ( I would hate to see a small cup). Pretty negative feed back you may feel. In saying all above, I would still use Beauvais again as it is a means to an end and the flights are quite cheap compared to other carriers, but be prepared for what you get when you arrive.

Beauvais Airport review by Alan McLaughlin

12 June 2006

I make the trip to Beauvais and Prestwick most weekends and I have never had a problem with the facilities. The airport authority are clearly investing in and upgrading the buildings with the income from increased flights, and staff are always courteous and efficient and board the flights by sequence number. The airport is a bit far out like all Ryanair destinations but just try getting to CDG at peak times and you will soon appreciate the drive through the French countryside from Beauvais. For car rentals returns I suggest going into Beauvais centre to fill up your tank as all the petrol stations around the airport close by 7:00pm and the machines only seem to accept French Visa cards. Instead of turning right at the airport road traffic lights, turn left past McDonalds and follow the signs for Beauvais centre / Cathedral - which is a straight road. Just at the town centre traffic lights turn right and you will see a Total petrol station open until 10:00pm.

Beauvais Airport review by Anne Simpson

26 February 2006

We were a family of two adults and two kids travelling from Prestwick to Disneyland Paris. As Beauvais airport is about 117kms from Disneyland and relatively expensive for four to get there and back we decided the cheapest way was to hire a car and print out a route planner from the A.A. to make our destination easier to find. Getting there was not a problem and took just over an hour but coming back on the Sunday evening heading in the direction of Paris was a different story. The traffic was heavier and we got lost a few times which might not have happened had we taken a decent map with us. The car was due back at the Hertz Rental by 7pm and as we were running a bit late we decided to wait till we got to Beauvais before topping up the fuel. There was a gas station 2kms from the airport but unfortunately it was closed . As we didn't have the time to start looking about for another we took the car back and was charged 57euros for the half tank of diesel we used. Make sure you top up en route when you find a station otherwise it could end up being a very costly car hire. Otherwise Hertz were very reasonable at £73 for the 3 days hire and we were given a brand new Peugeot which let us get about and discover some good designer outlets very close to the Parks and a big shopping centre at the junction of the A104 9kms from Disneyland. It had a big Carrefour supermarket. We were able to purchase fruit, salad, cold meat and rolls to do us while in the Parks as what they offer in the Parks is total junk food and very costly. The other good thing with hiring a car is you can then choose a cheaper hotel to stay at a bit further away from the parks and if you have the yearly pass for the parks you can park at the parks for free otherwise it is 8 euros each day you park there. It would probably work out even cheaper to take our own car and drive all the way there but we were limited for time and we did get exceptionally cheap tickets with Ryan Air having booked well in advance. I hope this information will be useful to future travellers with kids and on a limited budget.

Beauvais Airport review by Grant Russell

11 February 2006

I've flown into Beauvais twice now from Prestwick, and encountered no problems. The departure 'lounge' is a tent, but the rest of the airport looks up to scratch and is more than sufficient for what you pay for. As said before, bus services to Paris are very punctual and although it can take up to 90 minutes to get into town depending on the time of day, it is still a good service. The bus then drops off at Porte Maillot, next to the Palais which has access to Metro Line 1 in its basement, or you can access the metro just across the road. All the main 'city centre' areas of Paris are located on this line, such as Champs Elysees, Arc de Triomphe, Louvré, Concorde, and Gare de Lyon train station. A good few of the stops on this line also connect to the areas where most of the cheaper hotels are located, so it's a simple process as long as you're not trying to navigate the metro with all your luggage during a busy time.

Beauvais Airport review by Gilbert Jones

21 December 2005

Bus connection to Paris is very efficient. This airport has very few shops. The shops that are here are very expensive but in general everywhere in Paris is expensive. The duty free shop here is very expensive and you will save very little buying here if you are flying between EU countries. Would not recommend Paris for a weekend break. The people in Paris are very boring and have no sense of humour. They need to learn how to smile but I suppose that is very difficult with the cost of living here. Coming from Ireland I am glad to be home.

Beauvais Airport by Chris Maverley

9 October 2005

I'm just back from a week break in Paris. I found BVA airport amusing but considering the cost of the flight, the efficiency of the airport and friendliness of the staff, everything worked out well. Our bus to Paris departed not long after we landed and collecting baggage was a breeze. I travelled from CDG before and found it more stressful than the BVA route. I enjoyed seeing the countryside during the trip to Paris on the bus and I thought the bus itself was good. I think some people are expecting too much for the price they have paid. I agree about the prices of the snack bar and I will be sure not to be hungry next time I am there, and I will travel this route again. On arriving at Porte Maillot Metro 1 is across the road and from there it's plain sailing. Be careful about booking early flights home as you have to get the bus 3 hours before your flight departure time, in some cases it can mean getting up at 4am and Ryan Air charge a hefty fee for changing flights.
