  • enough time??
    Nov 21, 2016
    We are first time international travelers (family of 5) traveling from Chicago to marseille w a 1:50 layover in CDG. We arrive at 8:05 am and depart terminal 2F at 9:55.... booked through KLM but delta is partner out of Chicago.... is this enough time? What all will we have to do? Just passport clearance? I'm panicked.....


    every time when you come back to France, you want to feel like you are not alone and somebody is nice with you. Therefore I adore one company which give a opportunity to go by taxi 24 hours per day! And I am talking so serious about it. Amazing guide and driver told me too much about sightseeing which we passed and we came to visit the best places in France! He is very cheerful person, even changed my mood and made me smile after long flight. His price for 2 hours was lower than other told me – the best persona I have ever me! I could give you the number to let you get the best one trip by car! Email: Tel/viber +33 753 18 72 75 Whatsapp/ viber +38 067 295 73 59 Skype: tur.france site -


  • Connecting flight to Dublin
    Nov 11, 2016
    Hey there! Any advice would be greatly appreciated with this. I have a flight from Seoul to Dublin with a connection in CDG. The luggage will be transferred by the airport staff as the airlines are connected. I haven't booked the flight yet so I'm not sure about the terminals. I have approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes between my arrival in Paris and the departure for Dublin. I know it's dependent on the terminals but do you think that is enough time between flights? Thanks in advance!


    If both flights are on Air France or the same reservation Korean Air to Air France that should be enough time.


    Thanks so much for your reply! The flight to Paris is with Air France and the flight to Dublin is with City Jet. The entire trip is booked under 1 ticket. Do you still think I have enough time?


    I just got word from Air France and my flight arrives in terminal 2E and the City Jet flight to Dublin departs from the same terminal. I'm guessing I'm in the clear to catch that flight then?


  • access to lounge
    Nov 10, 2016
    i arrive and fly out of terminal 2e 6 hour stop over will i be allowed to access a lounge in terminal 1 after passport control but before international police check point


    Terminal 1 is on the complete other side of the airport. No you won't be allowed access to Terminal 1 without a boarding pass departing there.


  • Enough connection time?

    My flight from Singapore arrives at 6.10am in Paris. I need to take a train out from CDG after my flight. I am planning to take the train from the CDG TGV station. Will 2hrs 50mins be enough to get through Customs/Passport Control and make it for the 8.59am train trip?


    Yes, that should be enough time.

  • Transfer from Terminal 2A to Terminal 1
    Nov 2, 2016
    Hello! I am traveling on December 3, 2016. I have a flight from LHR on British Airways landing at 11:15 at Terminal 2A at CDG, then have to transfer to Terminal 1 back to the U.S. (U.S. citizen) on Norwegian Air. My departure to the U.S. is at 3:10pm, giving me 3 hours and 55 minutes. After reading the comments, I realize that I have to go through passport control and immigration before collecting my bags, taking transport to terminal 1 before checking in again and passing through security. I have two questions. (1) Is this a reasonable time if I have to check in bags? (2) If I decide not to check in bags and have a carry on only, would I still need to go through passport control and immigration or can I go straight to terminal 1? I would really appreciate your advice!


    That should be enough time. Yes, you will still have to go through passport control if you didn't check bags.


  • Connection in T1 BKK to IAD
    Oct 23, 2016
    Hello, I have the option to connect in CDG on a BKK (Thai) to IAD (United) itinerary. Both are in T1. 5 hour connection so I'm sure plenty of time. Will I have to go through passport control? If not, will I be able to access the Star Alliance lounge? Is there a decent array of shops as well, including Laduree or any good patisseries I can go to?


    You should not have to go through passport control. There are some shops in the transit area of Terminal 1, but not many, it is an older terminal.


  • CDG from LON
    Oct 17, 2016
    Would I have enough time connecting with different tickets on different airlines if i arrive at CDG from LHR at 9am and have a flight to FRA at 1030am? What is my best chance of making it if the ticket is already booked?


    What airlines? Do you have checked bags?


    Ok I missed it. The line line at immigration before collecting my bags took almost 2 hours to clear. Not to mention terminal transfers etc.

    I am from the USA flying on Wow airlines from Iceland to Paris CDG arriving at 11:20am. I only have a carry on bag no checked luggage and chose a seat at the front of the plane. Do you think I will have enough time to transfer and make my AirFrance flight departing to Montpellier France at 12:45pm? Do I need to clear passport control since my final destination is in France? Thank you in advance.


    Yes, you will go through Schengen entry passport control in Paris. You have just enough time if everything goes perfectly. Check in for your Air France flight online before leaving the US.


    I will be doing that and I am happy to hear that I know it is going to be close but, I am going to make this work out hopefully. Is the train usually fast between terminals ?


    The CDGVAL is OK, it runs pretty frequently, but the terminals are a bit far from each other.


    I'll Have to put a moderate jog on and make up some lost time.


    Wanted to let you know I made it with about 25 minutes to spare before boarding thank you I ran but then realized I had plenty of time I did get through the faster line for security because I showed them when my flight took off


  • Transfer 2F to 2E
    Oct 14, 2016
    Hi, I'm Korean.i just booked flight from Rome through CDG to Korea. My flight from Rome to cdg will be arrived at 12:25 at 2F terminal. I checked it usually took off around 12:35. The flight to Korea will be departed at 2E terminal at 13:30 and i have to go through passport control. Also, if the flight will take off at 2E M gate, I should take the shuttle bus from 2E L gate to M gate. I've heard boarding time in Cdg is 20min before departure. Is 1hr enough to transfer from 2F to 2E M gate and passport control?? Thx, in advance.


    all of my flights are Air France.


    It should be enough time if the flight from Rome is on-time.


    That's a relief. Thank tot for such a prompt reply.


  • Connection from Edinburgh to CDG, then 2nd flight from CDG to Denver
    Oct 14, 2016
    Like others I need help to know about connection times at CDG. Planning on flying on January 16, 2017. We are US citizens on last leg of vacation and hope to fly from Edinburgh to Paris CDG on Air France arriving 9:10am (Terminal 2e?). Then need to deplane, pick up checked bags, and recheck bags for United flight to Denver that leaves at 11:55am (terminal 1?). Is 2 hrs & 45 min enough time ... especially in mid-January?


    United does not fly from Paris to Denver. Is this a flight that stops somewhere else first?


    The flight I'm looking at goes through Washington (IAD) airport.


    OK, then yes, you will arrive in 2E go through Schengen Entry passport control, claim your bags, take them on the CDGVAL to Terminal 1, re-check with United, and go through Schengen Exit Passport Control, and security and to your departure gate. I think that is really difficult to do in that amount of time.


    Thanks for the honest response. Although I'd prefer to spend another evening in Edinburgh, it sounds like the smarter choice would be to fly into Paris/CDG the night before and go through the first part of the process that night. Then spend the night @ nearby hotel and come back to CDG in the morning for 2nd half of the journey. Less anxiety makes for a better trip! Thanks again.


  • Connection 2E to 2E with Pet, Do we go thru Customs
    Oct 14, 2016
    We will be traveling from Houston to CDG into Terminal 2E and 5 hours later depart to Tunisia Terminal 2E. Since we are flying in and out of Terminal 2E I'm hoping we will not have to pass thru customs because Tunisia and France both have conflicting requirements. If we do not pass thru Customs at CDG I believe we do not have to meet all the requirements and only need to meet the requirements of Tunisia. Thanks in Advance


    You will not go through passport control in Paris since you are not entering the Schengen Area. What country are you a citizen of?


    We are US Citizens going to Tunisia. I know you say Passport Control but is "Passport Control" the same as Customs? We are being told by the USFDA that if we go thru Customs in CDG specifically there is additional requirements we need to meet and they are quite difficult..


    You won't have to claim your pet in France therefore will not go through Customs there.


    You mentioned "claim" our pet. Just to clarify our pet will be traveling in-cabin with is so she will not be in cargo? Does this still apply that we will not go thru customs?


    OK, that's even easier, yes, you will just take your pet from your first plane to your second plane.


  • flight transfer in cdg
    Oct 12, 2016
    Hi, I have a flight from Birmingham Uk to Nice, France. I have to transfer in CDG with a layover of only 1.10hrs. My flight arrives from BHX at terminal 2E and the flight to Nice departs from terminal 2F. Do I have enough time to make the connection? Both flights are with Air France.


    Yes, that should be enough time.


    Thank you Zap!


  • Connections on different airlines
    Oct 4, 2016
    Hello! I am planning on traveling from the US to Madagascar by flying through CDG. Due to ticketing needs, I'm planning to book a United Airlines flight from the US to CDG, then book an Air France flight from CDG to Madagascar. This will be on two separate reservations, so I anticipate needing to pick up bags & re-check then go through customs twice when connecting. Does anything think there will be an issue, especially if it's a 3-3.5 layover time?


    If you have over 3 hours you should be OK if the United flight is on-time.


  • luggage
    Oct 4, 2016
    i am booked on a flight from Montreal to Paris with a 2 hour stop in Paris and a connection to Naples. i am considering buying an extra ticket for Paris Rome Naples at a later time in case i miss connection. my luggage is gong directly to Naples, will i have to retrieve luggage in paris if i use the extra ticket.


    Yes, if you use the extra ticket you will need to have your bags only tagged to Paris and claim them in Paris. However, if your Montreal-Paris-Naples ticket is all on the same reservation I think you have enough time.
