  • Connecting Flight
    Jan 8, 2015
    I am flying in to CDG from Atlanta Georgia USA, ATL, and have a connecting flight to Rome, FCO, through a different airline. I have 1.5hours between flights. Is this enough to go through passport control and get to my next flight? Will I also have to go through security again?


    Yes, that should be enough time. You probably will have to go through security again, but security is much less time consuming at European airports.

    Will the CDG process the arrival of my dog in hold on Saturday or Sunday? If so, is there an extra charge?


    You will have to contact them.

    I have 10 hour layover...can I leave the terminal to meet friends in Paris? do I have to claim from AF and re-check luggage or can it go Air Morocco.

    Flying from San Francisco to Paris to Montpelier, where do I go through customs


    You will go through Schengen immigration in Paris as you pass from the Schengen to non-schengen side of the airport. You however won't claim your bags until you get to Montpelier.


  • Transferring Planes at CDG

    Arriving from Detroit at 2E transferring planes to Athens at 2F. Do I need to go thru customs again. Can I walk to next terminal--how long to walk. How do I get there. Have 1 hr 50 min. to accomplish.


    At CDG , T2E has a new pedestrian path to T2F - no customs needed.


  • Arriving with a dog in cabin
    Mar 13, 2014
    Does anyone know the procedure to follow when you arrive with a dog in cabin? Is there a specific customs officer or department that I need to see upon arrival? We arrive on a wednesday at 7.55pm so its after the main quarantine office closes, but they said they deal with commercial outgoing flights only, so I'm not sure where we are supposed to go or what we are supposed to do upon arrival.


    CDG has a special site for this: open If you can't open directly, open:, then click on Formalities, on 'Passenger traveling with a pet'.


  • Arrival waiting area
    Jan 20, 2014
    My grandmother will be arriving at paris cdg terminal 2a at 6am but I'm coming from train from holland to pick her up at 12pm so there is a 6 hour waiting period in between . She doesn't speak English and won't have a mobile so where is a good waiting point for me to pick her up? are there chairs at the arrival right outside the 2a arrival hall where she can sit and wait?


    six hours is a long time to wait in a small terminal with limited amenities (pharmacy, fast-food, convenience store) - with only the Roissybus directly connecting to Paris Opera. The meeting point is near the central entranc/exit, outside the baggage claim. When arriving at Paris, take the RER Rapid TGV train, taking 45 mins to the Airport. For an terminal maps open
