There are check in desks, cash machine, baggage reclaim, luggage trolleys, newsagent shop, toilets, souvenir shop, café, information desk, and payphones.

The airports terminal is long and narrow with check in on one end and baggage reclaim on the other. The car hire desks are next to baggage reclaim.

Calvi Airport Access

If you arrive at the airport on an arriving flight and need to get to Calvi or another location. You want to exit right coming out of the car park or left if you are coming out one of the car hire buildings across from the car park. Drive on the D81 until you get to the roundabout junction with the N197. You’ll go right for Ile Rousse, Bastia, Ajaccio and Bonifaio and left for Calvi.

It’s also possible to take the D81 directly to Ajaccio. This is a longer and more diffcult drive but offers some great views.

There is no public transportation to the airport but there is a taxi rank at the airport. There should be taxis waiting for most arriving flights.

If you are dropping someone off at the airport there is a drop off lane (voie de dépose) for departing passengers.
