The airport is located in Lesquin, about 7km from the city centre of Lille, and is therefore otherwise known as the Lille-Lesquin Airport. It is also recognised by its official code of LIL. The Lille Airport car hire companies include Auto Europa, as well as several other well known international companies. Auto Europa is one of the largest providers of car rental services in the world, and is often chosen by passengers arriving at Lille Airport.
Lille Airport, in northern France, is an airport well equipped to provide its passengers with efficient services, and all the support they require. Its facilities are more than adequate, and there are areas for arriving and departing passengers. At the exit of the arrival area, there are the car hire companies present at the airport, including Auto Europa. Auto Europa is open to meet the majority of arrival flights at the airport, and it may also be possible to arrange to return your vehicle out-of-office hours. However, if an Auto Europa one way hire is arranged it will mean that the customer will be returning the vehicle to another rental location, and will not be driving back to Lille Airport. One way hires may need to be reserved in advance, and their price should be confirmed with Auto Europa.
