Hey guys!! So for this week I’m going to be on holiday in France!! Me and my family are staying in a lovely villa down in the south west of France and so far we’ve all really enjoyed being here. I will do my best to keep up with all your posts however I may not release a post next Sunday depending on if I have time to or not. Anyways, for today’s post, I’m going to be talking about Humberside Airport which is the airport I flew from to get to France and giving you an insight to what it was like there.
Our flight from Humberside Airport was at 10 o clock and was with KLM Airlines. My house is about 30 mins away from there so despite having to get up at quarter past 6 in the morning (which let me tell you I was not happy about) we set off from our house about 7 o’clock and reached the airport at about half past 7. Now all the other airports we’ve been to before such as Leeds Bradford, Manchester and East Midlands have always had a serious shortage of parking spaces which has meant that parking up our car was not an easy task at all. However there were plenty of spaces in the car park at Humberside Airport and we had no problem parking up and reaching the Airport building fairly quickly.
Humberside Airport is one of the smaller airports in the UK so there weren’t a lot of shops and restaurants like there are at bigger airports. However, that meant that it wasn’t as busy and crowded as some of the other airports I’ve been to and I enjoyed a nice calm wait before my flight. This also meant that going through security was a literal breeze and we didn’t have to queue for ages like I have had to in the past. The lack of busyness at Humberside Airport also means that getting there really early for your flight isn’t necessary since we only needed to be there 2 hours before. If you are willing to get up quite early you will be able to get off for your flight quicker meaning you’ll reach your destination quicker.
Humberside Airport don’t fly directly to all smaller airports however some of the flights going out at the same time as ours included Jersey, Burgas, San Francisco and Venice and these are just naming a few of the places they fly to. The most common place they fly to though is Amsterdam and the idea is that you fly to Amsterdam and then on from there to wherever you want to go. We actually did this so we flew first to Amsterdam which only took an hour and then after spending a couple of hours in the airport there we flew on to France which took about an hour and 20 minutes and arrived there at about 4 o clock. I would definitely recommend this option if you live near Humberside Airport and don’t mind getting two flights since there were no direct flights to where I was staying in France from northern England and Amsterdam is a really nice Airport to stop off at with lots of shops and restaurants. I was very impressed overall with Humberside Airport and I would definitely travel again from there if I get the chance to.
Thank you for reading this blog post!! Let me know in the comments if you’d like me to write a post about my experience in France. There’ll be another post out soon but until then bye for now!!
