  • MPL - CDG - PHL (2F -> 2A in one hour?)
    Feb 17, 2016
    I'm pretty sure I already know that this isn't possible, but I thought I'd check. I'm travelling from Montpellier to CDG on Air France, which lands at 2F. Leaving on American from 2A -- connection time would be 1 hour. I'm sure checked bags would be a no-go, what about with only carry-on?


    Without checked bags it would still be impossible if you weren't able to check in online. 2F to 2A is very far and you'd have to go through Schengen exit passport control, and your flight from Montpelier will probably use a bus.


    Thank you so much for your prompt reply, ZAP. You are quite a resource on this forum, I notice that you are the primary information source.


  • Layover at CDG
    Feb 16, 2016
    We are arriving in Air France from Barcelona at Terminal 2Fand flying to Hyderabad from Terminal 2C in Jet Airways. Booked in same reservation. Connection time is 1hr 50 mins. Is it sufficient?


    I think it's possible, but may be difficult.


  • Boston to CDG to Istanbul customs and baggage questioin
    Feb 16, 2016
    I am traveling end of march from Orlando/Boston to CDG on Delta then transfering to Air france operated by Delta to Istanbul with a 1 hour 40 minute layover in CDG. Will i have to collect baggage or go through customs??? I know i must go through security.


    No, you won't have to do anything with your baggage in Paris or go through passport control since you are not entering the Schengen Area. You should have enough time.

    Flying Delta to CDG from US then Connecting to Istanbul via Air France . Is 2 hours enough connection time?


    Yes, that should be enough time.


  • Will I make the Connection??
    Feb 27, 2016
    Flying into CDG from Montreal Canada at 9:35 AM Terminal 2A and need to get to Terminal 2D for a flight to Biarritz at 11:10. The date of my flights not until end of August. Just booked the flights yesterday. Now I'm concerned. On an average day, should I be able to make the flight? I don't have checked baggage, just a carryon backpack. I need to get through Customs and not sure what else. Thanks


    Yes, that should be enough time. You will just have to go through passport control and to your departure gate.


    New info: They have changed my flight departure from 11:10 to 10:45 going to Biarritz. I just found out by accident. Just went online to verify some stuff. I didn't get an email with this new update. Does this mean I'll have to sprint to catch the flight to Biarritz?? Of course, they may change the departure time again. I'll need to keep checking, I guess.I will check in online and print off boarding pass to save a little time. Thanks.


  • Travel between terminal 1 to terminal 2
    Feb 7, 2016
    I am arriving terminal 1 and would like to meet a passenger arriving at terminal 2. I do not have a boarding pass for terminal 2 as Paris is final destination. Is this possible


    You will have to meet him at the exit of customs or the CDGVAL station. If you're going to take the RER into Paris, I suggest just meeting at the RER station.


    Thanks for the advice. Do passengers arriving at terminal 1 and terminal 2 both uses the same customs area?


    No, Terminal 1 and 2 are very far apart, but they are connected by the CDGVAL train.


    Thanks for info. I am arriving at 2E looks like only one boarder control, correct? We have only hand luggage, what instructions specifically should we give passenger arriving at Termnal 1, so she can meet us without getting lost? Also is taxis stand close? Thank you so much.


  • Will I make it?
    Feb 5, 2016
    I'm arriving in Air Canada from Montreal and flying to Milan on Alitalia. Connection time is only 1h10mins. Got checked bags. Will I make it?


    Are you on two separate reservations or one? On two separate reservations, no I don't think that's enough time to claim your bags from Air Canada and get to Terminal 1 and re-check them in time.


    I'm on the same reservation. Do I need to claim luggage and go through Customs or does it go directly from Montreal to Milan>


    Sorry, for some reason I thought your connection was in Rome, not Paris. You will not have to claim your bags, however, you will have to go from 2A, through Schengen Passport control, and then all the way to 2F for your departure. This will not be easy to do in an hour.


    Thanks so much!


  • Connecting 2E to 2F
    Feb 3, 2016
    We are arriving AF from Jfk terminal 2e. Transferring to terminal 2f for AF to BOD 1 hour connection. Will we make it and what is our best route


    Just follow the signs to 2F. You should have enough time if your flight from JFK is on-time.


  • Need to know if there is enough time to get from 2E to 2F
    Feb 1, 2016
    I'm flying AF from Detroit going to Venice. Land at 11:30 AM. Have just over an hour layover. Is that enough time to get to my next flight?


    It's possible, but leaves very little time to spare and the Delta/Air France operation at CDG Terminal 2 is huge.


  • connection of 1 hour and 35 minutes at cdg
    Jan 21, 2016
    i'm flying from tel aviv to u.s.a via cdg airport in paris in air france. i have 1 hour and 35 minutes connection. is it enough time?


    That should be just enough time. I believe you will have to go through security in Paris.


  • Airport Switch
    Jan 21, 2016
    I have to switch airport CDG to ORY does anyone know how much this may cost?? And are there any vegan places to eat around?


    Air France offers a direct shuttle bus from CDG to ORY for 19 Euro.


  • Arriving 2E, Departing 2F
    Jan 17, 2016
    We will be arriving on AF in terminal 2E (hall M?) making a connecting flight to Budapest in terminal 2F. Our connection time is 1 hr 25 minutes. Will we make the connection with checked bags or must we carry on to do so?


    That should be enough time, depending on where you are coming from.


    Thank you!


  • Connecting through CDG
    Jan 15, 2016
    Flying Delta from Atlanta USA to NCE and connecting through CDG. Will we need to claim our baggage, do customs and re-enter security at CDG? I've connected through CDG before on international flights and remember the customs and security lines being so long, many people missed their connecting flights. What will it be like to connect to NCE? Thanks!


    In CDG you will go through passport control but don't have to do anything with your bags or go through security since you are coming from the US.




  • Arriving Terminal 2E transfer to 2F
    Jan 13, 2016
    US citizen, no checked bags...will I have enough time for 1 hr only layover?


    Should be barely enough time if everything goes smoothly.


  • Exit security to recheck luggage?
    Jan 19, 2016
    I am flying from Florence (FLR) to CDG on 22 Feb. on Air France and then changing to a separate reservation on Air Canada to Los Angeles (via connection in Montreal). Is 1 hour 20 minutes enough time to switch airlines and recheck luggage? Do I have to exit security and reenter to check bags on Air Canada or can it be done within the security area? Thank you in advance


    There's pretty much no way you can make that connection with checked bags. You will have to exit the secure area, claim your bags, take them all the way across the mammoth Terminal 2, re-check them with Air Canada, go through Schengen Exit Passport control, and security. There's no way you can do that in 80 minutes.


    I was afraid that would be the feedback. There is an earlier flight, so I will bite the bullet and take the 8am instead.
