Paris flights operate in and out of three airports: Charles de Gaulle International Airport, Orly International Airport and Beauvais Tille Airport.
When arriving into Paris onboard an international flight you will arrive at either Charles de Gaulle International Airport or Orly International Airport, as Beauvais Tille Aiport is a smaller airport serviced by some low-cost carriers providing regional flights. Scheduled air carriers such as Air France, Air Canada and KLM Royal Dutch Airlines arrive and depart from Charles de Gaulle. You will also find that some charter airlines depart from Charles de Gaulle as well such as Air Transat Airlines and Air Canada Vacations Airline. Other charter airlines, including Sunwing Airlines, arrive and depart from Orly International Airport instead.
Charles de Gaulle International Airport is approximately 23 kms from the Paris city centre, while Orly International Airport is approximately 14 kms from the city centre.
While Charles de Gaulle International Airport is quite large and can seem intimidating, it offers a vast range of personalized services that can make your airport experience unforgettable … in a good way! The airport is home to comfort services such as family play areas, special baby change areas and even baby pushchair (stroller) rental. Not travelling with children? The airport also offers services for you. You’ll be able to take advantage of hundreds of free access PLAYSTATION 3 video game consoles in the departure lounges, Be Relax massage services, multimedia centre with Bluetooth and USB ports, music lounge, HD PS3 video area and even a digital corner, an interactive digital table with unique features such as draughts and chess.
Like the city itself Charles de Gaulle International Airport is a shopping and eating mecca. It is best to arrive early on your day of departure as you will want to leave plenty of time to browse the countless designer boutiques, the massive duty-free shops and grab your last cup of Parisian coffee before heading home.
Whether you are arriving into the Charles de Gaulle International Airport or the Orly International Airport your most affordable option for transferring to the city will be the RER-B train. Taxis are of course available, but they can be quite costly and the bus service tends to be slow.
