Is there a pre boarding interview before you depart to the united states like in Amsterdam?
My flight arrives from the USA at 7:30 am my train leaves to Narbonne at 10:26 is that enough time?
Yes, that is plenty of time.
I will be flying in from Scotland to CDG at 9:25 am and leaving to USA at 3:45 pm. Can I leave airport and have enough time to ride to Eiffel Tower and back in time?
Yes, that should be enough time.
What airlines are you flying? Is everything on the same reservation?
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.
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.
im traveling from bogota to china, doing a layover in paris, do i need to provide any documentation, blood tests or pet passport like if my dog was entering the EU?
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?
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.
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?
