Ian Johnson’s review, entitled “great little airport,” wrote, ‘Chambery is a great little airport, the closest to the major ski resorts like The Three Valleys. It’s small and gets crowded at weekends, but has a cosy bar/restaurant on the first floor. In 2014 we were delayed 6 hours here due to bad weather and they couldn’t do enough to make our stay more comfortable, drafting in extra sandwiches etc. We were on time this year but still had time to enjoy refreshments/drinks etc. Much better than using Geneva or Lyon.” Other Chambery Savoie Airport reviews complain of CMF’s queuing, “not enough seats,” and rude staff.
