  • Delta - Air France connection at CDG
    Mar 9, 2016
    If flying in Delta (with Air France code share #) is 1 hour enough time to connect to Air France flight to Moscow? Will we need to go through Passport Control or security before making connection. Know the connect is legal, is it realistic? Thanks


    You won't need to go through passport control or security. it should be enough time if the Delta flight is on-time.


  • connection terminal 2C-2F and 2F-2E
    Mar 7, 2016
    I will be making a connection at CDG and cannot find any information on how to switch between terminals. On my way to the final destination (Moscow-Paris-Barcelona) there will be a 3 hours connection between terminals 2C and 2F. On my way home (Barcelona-Paris-Moscow) the connection time is only 1 h 30 min and the terminals are 2F and 2E. How do I get to the terminals and how long time will it take? Thanks for your help!


    You should have enough time. All the T2 buildings at CDG are connected to each other. The best advice I have is to just follow the signs.


  • connection between CDG Terminal 2A to 2E
    Mar 6, 2016
    my wife is first time travelling , she is expected to reach from AUH , Eithiad Airways EY 31 at Terminal 2A at 0715 Hours , her connecting Flight is from 2E (?) Air France AF498 to SXM at 1045 , is the layover sufficient 3 hours 30 minutes for immigration baggage collection and again check in immigration etc , next can she just collect bag and proceed for one single immigration ? Please help , or if there is any assistance I would need .


    That should be enough time. If she is on two separate tickets she will have to go through passport control, claim her bags, re-check her bags, and then go through schengen exit passport control and security.


  • shuttle
    Mar 2, 2016
    how easy is it to take train shuttle between terminals? is it clearly marked


    There are two trains, one the primary CDGVAL, goes between terminal 1, 2, 3, and 4 as well as the RER and TGV train stations. It is clearly marked with signs that say CDGVAL. There is another train that connects the various sub-terminals of Terminal 2.

    We are arriving CDC at 9:00AM from London on Air France and need to make a 11:00AM flight (could be AA, BritAir or Finnair). Do you think we are allowing enough time (with carry on)


    Where are you flying to?


    I am flying to Boston.


    With Carry-On only that should be enough time.


  • Terminal connection
    Mar 1, 2016
    I arrive from Malaga at terminal 2F, and my connection to Helsinki leaves from 2D - can I walk between terminals, and will I have to go through another security check? Thanks!


    Yes, you can walk from 2D to 2F. Since all flights are within Schengen you shouldn't have to go through security.


  • Air France to American?
    Feb 29, 2016
    Looking at tickets AirFrance from Stockholm Terminal 2F @9:10am. (Or SAS arriving 9:50am @ Terminal 1) Is it possible to collect luggage and recheck (separate ticket) at Terminal 2A for 11:35am American flight (priority lanes) to Dallas? Thanks


    I'd say you have a chance with the 9:10 AM Air France flight.


  • Arrival in 2F, Depart from 2F
    Feb 29, 2016
    I have a 1 hour connection between my flights (incoming from VCE, going to BUD). Since I don't have to go through security, I'll probably be okay right? I have one checked bag


    Yes, and since all 3 cities are in Schengen, that should be an easy connection.


  • Transfer between terminal 1 and 2F seperate tickets
    Feb 24, 2016
    Hi Everybody Our flight (2 of us) from SFO lands at CGD at 10:45 we connect (on a separate ticket) to BOD at 1:10. That gives us about 2 hours before boarding starts. Is this enough time? Will have one checked bag. Thanks GP


    That will be difficult on two separate reservations. It's not impossible though. Terminal 1 arrival makes it a little easier.


  • arriving from canada to Terminal 2a to terminal 1
    Feb 25, 2016
    Hello, I have been trying to get more information for our connection at CDG. We are arriving at 8:45am from Montreal on Air Canada into terminal 2a. We are catching a 10.20am flight out on Aer lingus to Dublin in Terminal one. It is not on the same ticket, we booked the CDG-DUB leg seperately. We are travelling on Canadian passports with only carry-on, no checked luggage. Do we have to go through customs/immigration? I have read that we take the CDGVAL from terminal 2a to terminal 1 but I cannot find if it is a secure zone. Thank you for any info.


    Yes. You will have to go through passport control upon arrival. The CDGVAL runs outside security. This is a difficult but not totally impossible connection.


    Thank you,Zap. It will cost us approx 450 CAD to change to the 1:30 pm flight. Air Canada was going to book us on the 10:20 and the rep said "that will be plenty of time to make the connection". Unfortunately they were going to charge an arm and a leg to add the connection to DUB. So we booked on our own but don't have the security of a through ticket. I am hoping that his willingness to book us on the 10:20 is from experience with CDG but....


  • 2E to 2F
    Feb 23, 2016
    I'll be travelling on AF in 2 weeks from LAX, arriving in terminal 2E and making a connection for Italy in terminal 2F with 1h 45 min to spare. Can someone let me know what I can expect in terms of process once we land and then how we get from 2E to 2F? From the map, it looks like we just walk, but want to be sure. Thanks!


    You will go through Schengen passport control on your way. You should have enough time.


    Many thanks, ZAP!


  • terminal 1 terminal 3 connection
    Feb 23, 2016
    I am connecting from Aegean airlines Terminal 1 from Athens and leaving though Terminal 3 via Wow airlines for the USA. I have a about a hour connection. Enough time? when and where do I have to go though passport check or customs or security. I am not checking bags or anything I will just have my carry on bag.


    This is not really feasible. You will not go through passport control or customs since Greece, France, and Iceland are all in the Schengen Area, but it's still not feasible to make this connection in an hour as you will have to get your WOW boarding passes and go through security in T3.


  • Deplaning Air Transat
    Feb 21, 2016
    How much time can one expect it to take to deplane and pass through passport control when arriving on Air Transat in Terminal 3? Is the given arrival time the time deplaning onto the buses begins or the estimated time you should be stepping into the terminal?


    The specified arrival time means "door open" which means when you would begin boarding the buses. I would estimate about an hour. Terminal 3 isn't as crowded as Terminal 2, but isn't as good as Terminal 1.


  • US to UK at CDG 2E
    Feb 18, 2016
    Flying from Boston (AF/Delta) and connecting to EDI (AF) with an hour between the 2 flights, both within 2E terminal. Will that be enough ? If I understand correctly it will be security but not passport control.


    Correct, that should be just enough time.


  • Terminal 1 to Terminal 3
    Feb 17, 2016
    Next week I will be flying from EWR (U.S.) on United and arriving in Terminal 1. I have a connection to Madrid on Vueling Airlines which leaves from Terminal 3. Is 2 hours enough time. I will have a carry on.


    With carry-on only I think that would be possible if you check in for your Vueling flight online and your United flight is on-time.
