  • Montreal to Paris - Paris to Beirut
    May 22, 2016
    I'm flying from Montreal to Paris with Air France then from Paris to Beirut with MEA but with different tickets, issued from different airlines without connection flight. Questions and Options: 1 - Would Air France agrees on routing my baggage to MEA even if the second ticket is not issued by them? 2 - If luggage routing is not acceptable, would i be able to claim my luggage and check them in without having a Schengen VISA? 3 - If above both options are not valid, what would be the solution? Thanks


  • Layover Immigration/Customs Help
    May 17, 2016
    I am flying via Airfrance from IAH to CDG to FLR. The lay over in CDG is 1 hour and 30 minutes. Is this long enough? Will my checked bags be checked all the way through to florence? Will I go through customs/immigration in florence or paris? Thank you for the help


    You will go through Passport control in Paris. You don't have to do anything with your bags. You should have just enough time.

  • connecting time
    Apr 26, 2016
    I am arriving in CDG on a Delta flight at 8:35, and connecting on air france to Bordeaux which leaves at 9:55. Will I have enough time to go through passport control and find my gate?


    That should be enough time.


    Thanks ZAP! This is a separate ticket but I plan to check in the day before. I will carry my luggage. Will I need to go through any immigration lines or willl I be able to go right to my gate?


    You will go through passport control in Paris.


  • Short transfer time between connecting flights
    Mar 9, 2016
    I am looking at booking a Air France flight from Heathrow to Johannesburg that connects through CDG. My London flight arrives at 22:20 and the connection to Joburg leaves at 23:25, giving me a 1hr05min transfer time. Since both tickets will be on the same booking, as an EU national will this leave me enough time to transfer?


    Yes, that should be enough time. All you have to do is go from your arrival gate to your departure gate.


    Ah okay, does that mean I should arrive and depart in the same terminal? Also does that mean I won't have to go through any extra passport control? Thanks for your help.


    Since you are not entering the Schengen Area you will not go through passport control. Non-Schengen Air France flights use multiple different parts of Terminal 2. It is a huge complex.


  • flying into CDG and catching connecting fight
    Jan 4, 2016
    I'm flying into CDG with my 80 y/o parents and have one hour to catch connecting flight to Athens, Greece. Is this enough time? I have never traveled overseas before


    Where are you flying from? What airlines are you flying?


    I'm flying in from Minneapolis, St Paul, Delta


    That should be just enough time if everything goes smoothly. You will have to go from your arrival gate to your departure gate and through Schengen passport control in Paris.


    Thank you for the information...I really appreciate your help.


  • 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.

    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.
