  • Able to leave airport for layover?
    Mar 20, 2017
    Hi. I will flying back to the United States, from a short trip in Greece and will be flying Air France. I have a long layover at CDG and want to go explore a bit of Paris. I have a US passport, but have read varying input on whether I will need additional documents to be able to leave the airport and then return to check in for the connecting last leg of my flight. Has anyone encountered this situation? If so, how do you make sure if you need something additional or not? Have been told to call the consulate or airlines for info, but wanted to start here. Thank you :)


    You will still be in the Schengen Area when you arrive from Greece, so yes, you can leave the airport.


  • Connection between Orly and CDG
    Mar 14, 2017
    I have a flight from NYC to Paris which lands in Paris at 9:55am. I then have a flight from CDG to Vienna at 1:50pm. Is this a doable connection or should I give myself more time?


    That should be plenty of time.


    Oh, just saw you're connecting between Orly and CDG, this actually requires some work. Let's assume the flight from New York is on-time. you get on the RER from Orly at 10:20. Get to Paris at 11:00, get on the RER to CDG at 11:20, and get to CDG at 12:00. Still doable, but a lot closer.

  • time between airports
    Feb 4, 2017
    Am arriving CDG at 8:20 a.m. on Friday April 14. Would like to catch a 11:10 a.m. flight out of Orly to Biarritz the same day. I will have a carry on bag only. Is it reasonable to make it through customs and to Orly in time, and which is the recommended route for Friday morning in Paris?


  • transit with pets
    Dec 13, 2016
    good afternoon, i have flight with my little dog, she will go in the cabin with me, my route is china to Bogota and stop transit by CDG, i want know if need make customs or prepare some documents for the UE if just go by transit.


    i arrive by the terminal 2f and take the next flight by terminal 2e, air france


    You won't be entering the EU, so you will not need to go through anything other than security in Paris.


  • Is connection time enough?
    Nov 23, 2016
    I'm landing at CDG from the U.S. and have 2h20min to catch a connecting flight to Bucharest. If I check luggage is that enough time. I really wanted to check a suitcase but if it risks me losing a connection I'll force myself to pack light. Thanks is advance


    Are both flights on the same reservation or two separate reservations? What airlines are you flying?

    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 -


  • Time between flights, will it be enough?
    Nov 21, 2016
    I will be flying into CDG from the US and arriving at 7:40am. I'm wondering if I will have enough time to get through passport control, recheck bags, and get to departure gate for a flight to Toulouse at 9:55 am. Thank you.


    Yes, that should be enough time. If both flights are on the same reservation you won't have to do anything with your bags in Paris.


  • Separate tickets
    Oct 21, 2016
    Flying Air France to Amsterdam and then on a separate ticket, I am flying to the US on Delta. Will they check my bags straight through, or will I need to retrieve them? I will only have an hour and 45 minutes until the second flight, will I have enough time? Thank you


    If you show your Delta confirmation to the Air France agent in Paris, they should tag your bags through to the US but they are not obligated to. If you do have to claim your bags in Amsterdam that will make the connection very difficult.

  • Where do I collect my Dog?
    Nov 18, 2016
    I am flying into terminal 2E on Air France flight with my dog brought as excess luggage. Where do I collect her and what's the process for her release please?


    Can you tell me what happened as I too have the same question Thank you


    I will be transiting through CDG. I will be flying Air France. Is there a pet relief area in the airport or a grassy area to walk my dog.


  • Gate D68

    There is no premium line. Immigration in Terminal 1 is usually really easy.
