I have a SQ flight arriving in CDG at 7.30am at terminal 1. The next flight to London is 9.50am . I need to collect our bags, go through passport control and customs, and then re-check bags with Easy Jet. Is 2.5 hours enough to do all this?
It's barely enough time if everything goes perfectly. Your EasyJet flight will depart from 2D so you will have to take the CDGVAL there.
Looking at flights from US to Dusseldorf Germany. Most have connections at CDG. If I book one ticket with the connection in CDG, will I have to go through customs? Or just passport control and bag will be transferred?
You will go through passport control in Paris, but not have to do anything with your bags.
I will have a 12 hour layover at CDG and booked a hotel for nap, shower, walking outside but nearby the airport grounds. I am then travelling on to Johannesburg, Africa. Is it OK to leave the airport?
What is your citizenship? If you require a visa what kind do you have?
I fly from SFO to Paris,have a 12 hour layover, then to Johannesburg, all on AirFrance. American Citizen and US Passport. Can I LEAVE THE AIRPORT? If I leave CDG , Will I have to go through customs with my suitcase or can it be checked all the way through from SFO to Johannesburg . How much time before departure to Johannesburg should I get back to CDG?
Forgot to mention, I will be departing CDG for Johannesburg, from Terminal A at 11:30pm
