  • Transfer from 2c to 2f
    Sep 15, 2012
    Im arriving with a mutli entry schengen visa issued by french embassy to CDG at 0940am. I want to travel to amsterdam for 2 days the same day when i arrive cdg, before returning to my commitments in france. On arrival at 2c, do I need to go through immigrations and customs? and if so how long does it take to clear these and make my way to 2f where my flight will leave at 1140am. Any important instructions are welcome! Thanks for your help !


    At CDG, on arrival you will not have to go through non-Schengen passport control. Note that the common area (pre-security) links Terminals 2C, 2D & 2F. You have enough time to walk over to 2F.


    Thanks for the reply. So, when I arrive in 2c at CDG I should not go thru customs, just instead board the flight from 2f, travel to amsterdam, go through immigration there and return to CDG paris 2 days later and for the 1st time go through immigration to enter france. Passport control and immigration is the same thing right ? Thanks for your reply.

  • Transferring 2E to 2F
    Sep 14, 2012
    I'm traveling from Atlanta to Cairo in November 2012, all on Air France. I'm confused about arriving in 2E and leaving 2F. I have about 2 hours. Do I have to go through security again? Do I have time?


    At CDG, the common area links halls 2C through 2F - On arrival follow signs. you have enough time.


    I am arriving on Air France in terminal 2E and need to go to terminal 2F in one hour. What is the best and quickest way of accomplishing this?


  • Transfer from 2D to 2 E
    Sep 5, 2012
    On my return trip from Malaga, Spain, we arrive at termial D and transfer to terminal E. We have 1hr and 15 minutes. How do we transfer and how long will it take.


    You arrive and depart from Terminal 2C and need to connect to Terminal E, which has gates L21-53 & K21-54 (check your ticket and the overhead screens for your departure gate. Terminals E through F are close together and link, under the common area, halls 2C through 2F. Make sure your first airline will transfer baggage to connecting airline - if not you need to collect bag & check it in at Terminal 2E. You time should suffice.

    Where is the nearest customs office to terminal 2E for claiming my Vat refund?


  • need help on transfer time T1 to 2G
    Aug 27, 2012
    flying from US on United arrive at T1 at 6:55am, am thinking about taking an AF flight out of 2G at 8;45am. Is that enough time? How long is the shuttle bus? Thanks!


    On arrival at FCO you have 2 options to get to Satellite 2G - (a) A light-rail shuttle, the CDGVAL, links terminals; (b) Use T1's underground moving walkways which serves all seven separate satellites. You have enough time.


  • Landside Lounges
    Aug 22, 2012
    Will arrive several hours too early for rental apartment check in. Are there any landside lounges I can use after getting my luggage? I can use Delta Sky Clubs and several others.


    None of the many CDG terminal maps have airline lounges listed among their services; as a general rule, airline lounges are located inside security areas. Contact either information counter at Arrivals area or Delta.


  • terminal transfer
    Aug 20, 2012
    how can i transfer from terminal 2G to 2F how long it would take and it is need to take a shuttle or not. i have only a little time between flights.


    Note that 2A through 2F are close to each other, but 2G is 2.5 km from 2F, necessitating a bus transfer). At Terminal 2G you need to go through passport control and connect via "Transfer" bus to 2E (2F is opposite the driveway, - you need at least a 1-hour transfer time


  • 2a to 2c easiest way to go
    Aug 25, 2012
    with an infant ,indian passport ,expired usa via going to india


    A new building now connects gateways 2A & 2C, used by Oneworld airline alliance (incl. American & British Airways). NOTE, however, that new EU rules call for separate passports for children (including babies).


    so we can just walk rom 2a to 2c instead of airside shuttle,does the connecting building has a immigration control or security control


  • Help I need to transfer quickly :)
    Aug 17, 2012
    Hi I am connecting from a Cityjet/air france flight AF1979 from dublin to Rio I arrive in terminal 2e and have to get to 2f for the rio flight af442. I am travalling with a Brazillian pasport holder and only have 1hr to connect. Dublin and rio are outside of shengen and I dont want to go through immigration as they will delay my friend. Can you tell me the fastest way to get from 2e to 2f. I believe that cityjet/af park at a remote stand so cant tell what gate in 2E we will arrive.


    1. Before your departure, find out if CityJet will transfer your bags to your connecting AF flight - if not, you need to take your bag along to Terminal 2F and check it in there. 2. Terminal 2E (L gates 21-53 & K gates 21-54) is opposite the driveway of Terminal 2F (gates F24-56).


  • Getting across from 2F to 2E!
    Aug 14, 2012
    Please explain How do I get across to Terminal 2E from 2F? Is it possible to walk across carrying luggage? Or shuttle bus?


    Oh, CDG - it takes Einstein to figure it out! First, T2 has satellites 2B, 2D & 2F on one side of the driveway and 2A, 2C & 2E on the opposite side. The common area, howeverm links halls 2C through 2F - therefore you should be able to claim your baggage on arrival, then check it in with your connecting airline and proceed to your gate (2F has gates 24-56) - unless your original airline will transfer your bags to your connecting one.


  • Connecting flight at Orly
    Aug 11, 2012
    I shall arrive on an Air France flight at CDG's aeroport on the 17th of august at 10:30am or so, clear customs, pickup luggage. Next thing is meeting someone at Terminal 2F, and rush to Orly Airport for a connecting flight with Air France to Nice departing at 15:30. Taking into account the previous, plus considering we will have to ride to Orly Aeroport. 1. Will we be able to catch our flight on time? 2. What transportation vehicle would we have to take from CDG' to Orly?


    Paris Airports has a maddening site. However, this is what I gathered: 1. Ar France uses Terminals 2C,, 2B, 2F & 2D; You need to open, click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the text for terminal connections and other details. I cannot give you the time it takes to transfer to ORLY. However, I presume that 3 hours should suffice. 2. Transfer from CDG to ORY (Orly Airport): Take the RER rapid TGV train from the Airport train station to Paris "Anthony' station - then take the ORLYVAL shuttle train to ORLY, arriving at Orly's Terminal-South,


  • connection time
    Aug 9, 2012
    I will arrive to CDG terminal 2E from Mexico City, flight Air France 439 on august 31. I have a connection flight to Prague 1h and 40 min later departing from terminal 2D (flight Air France 1986). Since I'm in a non-Schengen (countries not part of the Schengen agreement) arrival, I'm guessing that I need to go through immigration /customs clearance involving picking up bags & re-checking them in, before continuing to my connecting flight. However I'm wondering if 1h and 40 min Is enough time to make the connection?, and how do I go to terminal 2D from 2E?. Thank you


    You have enough time. Open which shows you the terminals & connections.


  • Meeting a friend
    Aug 6, 2012
    We arrive CDG from Seattle on Aug 9 (2E, I believe). We have a 3-hr connection before departing for Athens (2D). Will we need to go through immigration/customs clearance together, then get to our gate for the Athens flight? What would be a good location to meet our French friends (non-ticketed) to transfer our teenaged son who will visit them for the month?


    Terminals 2 of Charles de Gaulle Airport - mainly used by Air France, includes 7 terminals (2A through 2F are close to each other and 2G is 2.5 km from 2F, necessitating a bus transfer). While Terminal 2G of CDG connects via "Transfer" bus to 2E, you need at least a 1-hour transfer time. On arrival you need to go through Passport control only. I cannot advise you as to where to meet - I suppose it would be in the Main terminal 2, on the Arrivals level, as your party cannot enter secured areas without a ticket. Try to contact the Airport at
