  • 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.


  • 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.


    Feb 7, 2016
    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!
