A handsome historic city and one of the finest gastronomic centres of France, it’s little wonder that visitors snap up flights from the UK to Lyon.

If you’re looking for cheap, direct flights to Lyon from Edinburgh, you’re in luck. Bargain fares are available with low-cost carrier easyJet, which operates a couple of flights per week between the two cities, with an average journey time of two hours and 10 minutes.

Flights touch down at Lyon-Saint Exupery Airport (LYS).

There are a couple of good options for reaching the city centre from the airport.

The Lyon Express Tram, also known as the Rhônexpress, operates fast and regular services; you could be in central Lyon in around 30 minutes. A single ticket costs 14.70 euros, return fares are 25.90 euros (20.80 if you book at least two months in advance). A return ticket combined with a two-day Lyon card for unlimited travel is a good-value alternative at 49 euros.

Taxi fares to central Lyon cost around 50 euros.

If you plan to tour outside of Lyon city centre (and who could blame you, the Rhone-Alpes region is packed with utterly delightful destinations), consider booking great-value car hire in Lyon.
