  • JFK-LHR-CDG... help!
    Apr 22, 2017
    I will be landing in LHR from JFK in 2 months at 8:10am. I just bought a flight to CDG on Air France that departs at 9:45am. That leaves me an hour to get to the terminal. Do you I have to go through passport control? Will I make it or do you suggest not bringing a checked baggage? I read that I have to take a bus that runs every 20 minutes from one terminal to the other.


    What airline are you flying from JFK?


    British Airways from JFK to LHR and Air France from LHR to CDG


    Yes, you will have to go through passport control if you bring checked bags. I think you can make it if you don't bring checked bags.

    I'm flying from Nice on AirFrance arriving at 8:45 am. Is this early enough to catch my Delta flight onward to Salt Lake City USA departing at 10:55? No checked bags but the tickets are separate. Thanks!


    Yes, that should be enough time. If you can't check in online for your Delta flight you should be able to get your Delta boarding pass at their transfer desk.


  • Help a senior out please with connection time CDG

    I am coming from Prague August 21,2017 into Charles de Galle. My arrival time is 9:00 a.m. Into Terminal 2D. I leave at 10:40 from 2E. I called Air France and they confirmed doors close 30 minutes prior to take off, which in this case will be 10:00. I have been watching the flight from Prague and it often has a landing time of 9:10-9:15. I have read it's 10 minutes of fast walking from 2D to passport control. Then once through that I have to get through Terminal 2E to the M gates. I am told my only option to get to the M gates is transport of some kind. Does anyone know exactly where I go for this? And how often does this run? My estimate is to allow at least 15 minutes for this. Then walking to my gate, which has been running at gates 42 and above. So total 20 minutes for this? So if I start off the plane at 9:15 and walk 10 minutes, then allow another 20 to get to my gate, that leaves no more than 25 minutes to clear passport control. This seems unachievable to me from the posts I have read. Can another confirm that I at least have a chance of getting through passport control in 25 or less minutes? Thank you so much


    Where are you flying from Paris to?


    I am flying to JFK which is the M Gates of terminal 2 E. It looks like passport control is in my arrival Terminal D correct? Then I walk to 2 E and get what looks like buses to the M Gates. I have been told those are busy and leave only every 9 minutes. From some maps it looks like it might be faster for us to walk from D to F as it appears there is a walkway between F and the L Gates where I could catch the bus there. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Arriving June 3 at 11:05 am on Air France Terminal 2E. Would like to fly Air France to Marseilles Terminal 2F. Haven't bought ticket yet. Is 1 hr 55 minutes between flights enough time, or should I be very cautious and take the next flight with a 4 hour window? Should I check my bag or would carryon be best option? I have Global Entry membership. (Second post - forgot to include email address)


    Global entry doesn't do anything for you in Europe. 1 Hr 55 mins is enough time if both flights are on the same reservation.


    They're not. I haven't made the reservation yet on the CDG to Marseille leg as yet.

    Yes, that should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Arriving & reconnecting with different airline, we have checked bags
    Apr 16, 2017
    Arriving form Australia at Terminal 1 Singapore Airlines, need to collect bags & re check in with Air France for flight to Lyon Terminal 2F. Flight arrives in at 7.30am connecting flight is at 10.20am. Will we make connecting flight after collecting bags & re checking in? Thankyou


    That should be enough time if your first flight is on-time.


  • Baggage not checked through
    Apr 17, 2017
    Hello - arriving from US on Delta Terminal 2E; departing Air France Terminal 2F to Lyon. As the flights were booked separately, the checked bags are not checked through to LYS. Approx how much time is needed and can you confirm we would have to go to baggage claim and then to Air France check-in. Thank you


    You can show your Air France confirmation to the Delta agent in your origin city and ask that your bags be tagged through to Lyon. If they are able to then you can go directly to your departure gate and 90 mins-2 hours is sufficient. if you have to claim your bags I'd want 3 hours.


    Thank you, I will give that a try.


  • Short connection time
    Apr 13, 2017
    We are Americans with Air France flights from Zurich to San Francisco with a CDG connection/plane change. The Zurich flight lands at Terminal 2E, The CDG to SFO flight leaves from Terminal 2F 65 minutes later. Seems tight...Do we go through passport control/customs in CDG?


    You will go through Schengen Exit Passport Control in Paris, this is indeed a difficult connection but not impossible.


  • transferring different airlines how much time is needed
    Apr 10, 2017
    Hello , we are hoping to book a flight from NAPLES ITALY TO PARIS, WITH AIR FRANCE AIRLINES ARRIVING AT PARIS FRANCE AT 2:50. We were hoping to transfer to Norwegian airlines for a flight at 6:15pm departure to JFK.. Is that possible to do with the time we have to get our luggage, and recheck in. were not sure what to do.


    That should be enough time if the air France flight is on-time. You will have to claim your bags and take the CDGVAL from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1 to re-check them with Norwegian.


    How long is usually checking bags, pretty smooth?


    Are they close to each other? The terminals


    No, they are not close to each other. They're practically on opposite sides of the airport.


    Was reading that it says it takes about 8min or so to take the shuttle from one terminal to another, is that correct?


    Eh, maybe a little more than that.


  • Salt Lake-Paris-Ajaccio connection at CDG
    Apr 10, 2017
    I booked a Delta flight between Salt Lake City and Paris which will arrive CDG 11:15 (Terminal 2E). I am now searching a connection flight to Ajaccio (AJA). There is one available at 13:00 (Terminal 2F). Is 1 hour and 45 minutes enough to make the connection? Or will I better off to book a 17:45 fly between ORY and AJA?


    The first connection would be very borderline.


    Ok, Thanks for the information. I will go with the safer option.


  • From 2E to 2F, Will 90 min layover with only a carry-on be enough?
    Apr 10, 2017
    Hello, I am flying with Air France, going to CDG, France from LAX, US, arrival at 11:05 am. At 12:35pm, I have another Air France Flight to go to Florence, Italy. Do you know if my flight from LAX will arrive at Hall K, L, or M in 2E ? I have read that it will take the least time to get from 2F from Hall K but more time with other halls. Even in the worst scenario, will I most likely be able to make it to my Florence flight within 90min? assuming my first flight is fairly on time. I only have 1 carry-on, NO checked bag. Thank you.


    You won't know the hall until the day of your flight. 90 minutes is possible but by no means automatic.


    Thank you for your reply. I got it. Will pray for my luck then.


  • Connection from 2E to 2A
    Apr 6, 2017
    It is my first time traveling with a connection that is not the same airline. I am arriving at 2E on an Air France Flight and departing 2hs 50 minutes later from 2A on a British Air flight to London. I only have a carry on and have a US passport. Can I make this connection or should I change my flight?


    With only a carry on I think you can make it. Where are you arriving into CDG from?




    OK, that will make it a bit more difficult but with no checked bags it should still be possible.


    Any suggestion on how to expedite and transfer between terminals? Should I get my check in for British beforehand so I can avoid the counter coming into the second flight?


    Yes, if you can check in online for your British Airways flight online certainly do so.


  • How to get from 2E to 2F in transit
    Apr 5, 2017
    Can anyone tell me the best way to get from terminal 2E to terminal 2F .Have a short connection time and last time we didn't make it .Do you have to go through passport control again or did we make a mistake last time.


    Where are you flying from and to?


    Aberdeen to CDG then onto Malaga


    You should have to go through passport control once.


    That will be in CDG I presume , as that is where we have the problem , the queues were horrendous last time we were there .
