Welcome Zone opened at Lyon-Saint Exupéry

Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport has unveiled its Welcome Zone - an innovative open-plan area showcasing what is on offer in the Rhône-Alpes region.

Expert advisors and innovative multimedia provides tourists with all the information they need on the local area, transport links, and airport services.

Open from 6am until 11pm, with an additional 24-hour interactive information point, the Welcome Zone is divided into three key areas: the tourism and airport zone, the lounge space and the transport zone.

Each zone has been tailor-designed by AVANT-GARDE and created by STEL, a subsidiary of Vinci Construction, to offer a contemporary, elegant look and feel.

Philippe Bernard, president of Lyon Airports, says: “Lyon Airports has a hugely influential role in the economy of Lyon and the Rhône-Alpes region, having welcomed more than 8.5 million passengers in 2013.

“It is a gateway to a territory rich in business and leisure opportunities. This new area is remarkable, not only because of its original concept of centralising all passenger information in one place, but also because of the collaboration between the prominent project partners.

“The Welcome Zone illustrates the importance Lyon Airports places on constantly strengthening the quality of service delivered to its clients.”
