  • 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.

    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


  • Ter2G to Term 2E
    Jul 12, 2012
    On Tues. we landed at Term 2 G and took the "Transfer" bus to Term 2 E, for our return flight to Boston. 1 hour is enough time. Just enough. You will have to go through Passport control but not security control.


    Thank you for sharing this info!


  • short flight connectin time
    Jul 4, 2012
    we varrive from cairo @11:20 in terminal2F and depart @12:35 from 2G to Clermont Ferrand , is it enough time to reach? and how?


    At CDG satellite terminals 2F & 2G are 2.5 km apart, requiring you to take the shuttle bus outside arrivals. An hour transfer time is enough.


  • Transfer at CDG without checked bags
    Jun 25, 2012
    We'll be arriving at CDG from Venice, transferring to a US flight. The connection time is 1.5 hours. Will it save us time if we only have carry-on bags?


    You have enough time for transfer if you have only carry-on bag, or if your Venice airline transfers your bags to the US airline flight.

    We arrive from Marseille in terminal @F at 12:20 and depart from 2E for Boston at 1:35...seems very short...any tips on how long it takes to traverse from 2F to 2E at CDG?


    At CDG Terminal 2 has satellites 2B, 2D & 2F on one side of the driveway and 2A, 2C & 2E on the opposite side. You simply take the walkway at 2F (follow signs) over to 2E. You have enough time.

    Me and a friend are meeting in paris. I arrive in terminal one 3 hours before she lands in 2b will i be able to go to her terminal to meet her?


    You can only meet her after you both went through the immigration / customs clearance process - best to meet up in the arrivals hall.


  • Air France Terminal

    What terminal does Air France use for flights from Washington DC? How to get from there to Terminal 1 to meet a friend


    T1 & T2 are close together; T2 has satellites 2B, 2D & 2F on one side of the driveway and 2A, 2C & 2E on the opposite side. Air France uses Satellites 2B, 2C, 2D & 2F. You may want to meet in the arrivals area in front of the information desk.
