Both Terminals house a wide choice of shops, restaurants, bars and cafes.  There are also business facilities at the airport including a Business Centre, free Internet access, and a postal office. Banks offering currency exchange facilities and ATMs are also available in both terminals.  Luggage storage is available, there is a lost and found department, information centres, and a medical centre.

The two terminals are not physically connected for pedestrian traffic, and therefore, it is important that you check which terminal you are departing from before you arrive at the airport.  However, there are shuttle bus services which run from outside each terminal which will help you transfer to the other terminal.

It is advisable to arrive at the airport at least 2 hours before your departure time, however, your airline may advise a more specific timescale.  Usually, your departure gate will appear on the departure boards about 40 minutes before the departure time, and it is important you make your way to the gate as soon as possible.

Passport Control at Nice Airport

Once your gate is visible on the departure boards you will be able to pass through Passport Control, follow directions to your gate and there will be a Passport Control desk to go through before arriving there.  Europeans are still advised to use their Passport as the main form of Identity when flying even within Europe.  For some nationalities ID cards are acceptable but this can cause problems when entering some countries in Europe.
