For international destinations, plan to arrive three hours in advance, as the deadline for check-in is 50 minutes prior to take-off. See more about check-in, baggage rules, and security procedures at Strasbourg Airport on the official website.

Airport Parking Facilities

Strasbourg Airport has several parking lots for visitors and passengers to use, including both short- and long-term options. There are also recharging stations available for electric and hybrid vehicles, as well as reserved spaces and on-site assistance for people with disabilities. You can book a space for all five parking lots on the airport's website. All lots offer easy access to the Entzheim train station (TER) and the shuttle to Strasbourg (see more below on public transportation options).

  • P1: With 108 spaces, P1 is best for those looking for short-term parking for up to 24 hours. It is possible to park there longer, but you will be charged the full daily rate for each additional day. The first 15 minutes are free.
  • P2: A short-term parking lot with nearly 500 spaces, P2 is a less expensive option for stays longer than 24 hours. The charging stations for electric and hybrid plug-in cars are located here.
  • P3: Located underground, this short- and long-term "comfort" parking lot has nearly 1,500 spaces available. The recommended stay length is one to 15 days; weekend packages are available.
  • P4: This long-term parking lot is less expensive than P3, and offers almost 400 spaces. P4 is recommended for stays up to 15 days. Located outdoors, it is reached by the airport access ramp.
  • P5: Finally, the P5 lot is another long-term parking option, with 378 spaces and recommended stays of up to 15 days. It offers the least expensive rates for each additional day and week. To get to the terminal, you will need to ride in a shuttle that arrives every 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the time of day. P5 is split into four sections—Dakar/Dublin, Calvi, Berlin, and Agadir—and each one has a corresponding shuttle stop.

Public Transportation, Taxis & Car Rentals

Using public transportation to get between Strasbourg Airport and the city center is both straightforward and budget-friendly, whether by shuttle train or bus.

  • The Shuttle Train: This connects Strasbourg Airport to the city center in only eight minutes, and is the easiest way to get from one point to the next. Trains depart five times per hour, and tickets can be purchased at the airport. Access to the terminal is via a covered footbridge from the airport terminal. See more information and current fares on SNCF's website (info is shown in both French and English). Travel tip: For transport around the greater Strasbourg area, you can purchase a combined shuttle and public transport pass that gives you access to trams and buses in and around the city.
  • Taxis: Taxis can be hailed from an official queue outside the ground floor level. Rides take between 15 to 20 minutes. Before accepting a ride, make sure to verify that a meter is present and that the vehicle is equipped with a lit "Taxi" sign on the rooftop of the car.
  • Car rentals: These are available at a dedicated office across from the P4 parking lot and just east of the terminal. Hertz, Avis, Enterprise, Europcar, and Sixt all offer rentals.

Where to Eat and Drink

See more information on eating and drinking at the airport at the Strasbourg Airport website. Consider some of these options:

  • Le Comptoir des Saveurs: Head here for snacks and light meals (soups, salads, sandwiches, pastries, coffee, and hot dishes). It's located on the ground floor in the arrivals area.

Strasbourg Airport Tips & Facts

  • April through August and the winter holiday season (late November through December) are peak tourist seasons in Strasbourg, making passenger traffic at the airport busiest at these times. Conditions are often less crowded during the low season (January through March and early fall).
  • Although Strasbourg Airport is small and easy to navigate compared to major international hubs in Paris, keep in mind that security procedures in Europe are rigorous. It's always a good idea to arrive at least two, or even three, hours in advance of your flight to make sure you have enough time to get through security lines and other procedures. This will also allow you to take advantage of facilities at the airport, including shops and restaurants.
  • Be aware that budget airlines rarely offer complimentary meals and drinks, even on longer routes, and many national carriers no longer do so on short-haul flights.
