I'm travelling to France and my port of entry will be Lyon airport.
If anyone's been to that airport, can you please tell me if it's possible to buy a prepaid local SIM card in the airport itself?

I did some research online but couldn't find anything valuable. Are there any shops or outlets that sell SIM card in Lyon airport?
Also, I'm arriving pretty late at night so I may not be able to purchase a SIM card from the local shops in the city.

You can by a prepaid SIM card by SFR. It is available in "Relay" shops where they mostly sell newspapers.

As you can see on this page, there are several Relay shops in the airport. They are all opened until 20:30 at least, 21h in some cases.

EDIT: Beware, these Relay are located inside other stores :

  • L'Occitane: cosmetics in terminal 2 (in "reserved zone")

  • OL Store: Local football club merchandising in terminal 1 (in "public zone")

  • Payot Librairie: bookstore in central "public" zone (level 1)

Here is a map extracted from Google Maps but I don't know this airport well enough to locate the arrival. Map

  • Thanks so much for this information! Can you please tell me if this is located in the arrival terminal? Sep 22, 2016 at 18:51
  • See my edit. Hope it will be helpful.
