This is by far, the worst airport experience I have ever had. I have travelled extensively, to some pretty remote places, but this one is by far the worst. 1 hour queue to check in with no more than 10 parties in front of us. When we got there he had no record of our ski equipment been booked for carriage, though I showed him the document which plainly showed it had, so he had to call his supervisor. The check in itself was makeshift, with half a dozen tee shirt clad youths throwing bags onto trolleys once finally checked in. Then another queue for security. Few trays to put things in, when you got to the departure area, (4 gates), it was completely full. I suspect there were at least a thousand people in a room designed for 200. When we arrived we had to circle for 30 minutes as there was no where to put us. There are tent like structures all around the terminal building, serving as arrival security, baggage halls, etc. the main issue seems to be greed, in that they are taking far more flights than the airport can handle. Avoid at all costs.

Chambery Airport is a disgrace! Every flight in and out delayed by 1 hour. Very limited seating, very poor services (1 restaurant and snack bar). The departure lounge is just one big room (with 4 so called departure gates) where all different flight passengers just stand around mixed in hoping to be near their gate - utter chaos. Avoid using Chambery Airport at all cost - go somewhere different and if skiing in La Plagne/Les Arc area use Geneva airport. This airport just cannot cope with more than a few planes a day!

A total disaster, which spoiled the holiday. Wildly over congested, seating very limited, and passengers sleeping all over the floor. Flight information on two screens only, horrific queues for check in and immigration. Avoid at all costs, and the extra transfer time from Grenoble, Geneva etc more than makes up for the horrible experience that is Chambery.

Terribly congested airport especially ski resort changeover delays. Always delays as only limited capacity for airliners in landing, parking, weight restrictions etc. Cant find seats, no room to sit on floors, litter everywhere, toilets overflowing with urine, no proper information and facilities unable to cope. A usual Saturday experience according to our Crystal rep. This airport is a health and safety disaster. Travel companies should put pressure on Chambery authorities to expand and improve facilities. Until then use elsewhere - Grenoble, Lyons or Geneva or try other countries as it is a horrible experience.


CHAMBERY AIRPORT review : 31 December 2008 : by Rob Weeks

Customer Rating : 3/5

Extremely congested during the arrival and departure of weekend ski flights. Neither the arrivals area nor the departures area are physically big enough to cater for the number of customers trying to get through. Very subject to weather delays: day before we arrived most flights were diverted to Grenoble. We were processed (!) efficiently in both directions, and will probably use the airport again due to the shorter transfer times to resorts than from GVA or LYS.



Chambery Airport by David Grey

1 February 2007   Customer Rating : n/a

Small airport at the base of the French Alps, catering mainly for British skiing flights during the winter season. Facilities very limited; 4 check-in desks that don't necessarily have signs telling which flight they are checking in, cafe/lounge/viewing area land-side, small snack bar + duty free shop air-side, one baggage belt for arrivals. No problems for either of my flights (arrive Thursday lunchtime, depart Sunday lunchtime), but apparently the airport can get very congested during peak periods.
