    The bus terminates in front of Euralille shopping centre, close to the train, metro and tram Lille Flanders station. The journey from the airport to the city is about 20 minutes long. The shuttle operates daily.

    By taxi
    There are several taxi companies providing their services at the airport. Taxi rank is situated in the drop off area in front of the terminal's level two.


    For dropping off or picking up passengers at the airport, we recommend the P2 parking, located opposite the airport, where the first 15 minutes are free. The terminal is approachable in less than five minutes. For one day trips, it is best to use the P3 Proximity and P1 for a long stay.
