Beauvais Tille Airport or Aeroport de Beauvais-Tille (Aeroport de Paris-Beauvais-Tille for commercial use only) (IATA: BVA, ICAO: LFOB) is a French airport, originally the small regional airport of the city of Beauvais. It is actually located in the community of Tille, 3.5 km (2.2 mi) north northeast of Beauvais, a commune of the Oise departement, and is 85 km (53 mi) north of Paris. The airport has four gates and a snack bar and shopping area, both airside and in the publicly accessible area. The airport handled over 2 million passengers in 2007.
Despite its official name being Aeroport de Beauvais-Tille and the airport being 3 times further from Paris than Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport, low-cost airlines serving the airport advertise it as Paris-Beauvais.
The airport is equipped to welcome medium-sized passenger jets in good visibility, and between the hours of 7 am to 11:30 pm local time. Since 2007 the ban on night flying has been strictly enforced for the benefit of local residents. Passenger planes arriving after 11:30 pm can be diverted to Lille Lesquin International Airport, Frankfurt-Hahn Airport, Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport or Brussels South Charleroi Airport.
The main runway, 13/31, only has an instrument landing system (ILS) in QFU 31 and a Precision Approach Path Indicator (PAPI) in QFU 13. It does not have an ILS to CAT III standard. This means planes can have difficulty landing in some bad weather conditions, notably when fog descends on the airport.In June 2009, ILS CAT III equipment was installed at the airport it is expected to greatly reduce delays caused by bad weather.
