    Paris Charles de Gaulle

    Arrive well in advance of your flight. When I flew out of CDG the check in and security queues were absolutely horrendous.

    Bring a good book or something. For a major airport, it is remarkably dull and post security we were pretty much locked in a cage and unable to move around.

    For Paris transfers, the RER connects the airport via line B with the city. There are two RER stations at the airport - one at Terminal 2, the other at Terminal 3. If you are meeting someone there, make sure you are waiting at the right station :)

    airport trains

    by internicholas Written May 24, 2007

    Paris CDG Airport is connected to many cities including Brussels by TGV train , station located at terminal 3. There is a free mini train which connects all 3 terminals. TGV has not very many frequent connections. A more frequent choice is Thallys Co. try their site: www.thallys.com. To get a Thallys train you have to travel from CDG to North station with the Metro for about 8Euro, as it does not serve CDG. Thallys is relatively expensive! a 2nd class ticket to Brussels (about 80 minute ride) costs 78Euro one way! TGV is a little cheaper. French people are polite to show directions, as it is very easy to get lost in the train and metro systems;) So ask!

    CDG Airport

    by northeast80 Written May 17, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beware, there are two different train stations at Charles De Gaulle Airport!!
    My friends and I did not know this and spent two hours trying to find each other not knowing that one was at the station at Terminal 2 and the other was at Terminal 1 & 3.
    Incidently there is a short train/metro ride between all the Terminals for free, but the maps at the airport train station was terrible, they only showed the surrounding area and not any of the terminals of train stations.
    We finally found each other and took the RER B into Paris Gare du Nord costing €8.10.

    Continental Business First CDG to EWR January 2007

    by cochinjew Written Feb 2, 2007

    I am partial to Continental Airlines Business First, first for their professionalism, second for the food in the cabin. I like to joke to my american friends that the best food in America that I have tasted is in the Business Class section of Continental Airlines.
    The food this time was not a disappointment: Salmon, Champagne, desserts. Good service as well.
    The international concierges of Continental Airlines are friendly, the best are the Japanese Concierges at IAH, EWR and NRT. The concierge at HKK was a chinese speaking Hindoo, who later sent me personalized luggage tags compliments of HKK staff. The one in Paris was intolerable and arrogant ( looked filipina) and for her bad behaviour, I was credited with 3000 FF miles by concierge at EWR!
    I highly recommend Continental Airlines for flights to and fro USA, among all the american airlines that fly there.

  • Charles-de-Gaulle (Roissy) to Charles Michels (M)

    by petershaw2294 Written Oct 4, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On arriving at Terminal 2, I decided to take the RER train into Paris getting off at Saint Michelle and taking the Metro to Charles Michels. On enquiring at the Airport I was told to take a No.5 bus (free) to the RER station, half an hour quickly went by before I purchased my ticket ( I bought a carnet to last me the weekend), the train ride to St.Michelle went well but on arrival I had a long underground walk to the metro station (line 10 for Charles Michels) . On my return I took the metro to Opera changing once at La-Motte Picquet, a very short walk took me to the Roissy bus (outside American Express building), this bus took me direct to terminal 2F at Charles -de-Gaulle. I wish to make the point that the return journey was much quicker and less stressful.

    CDG - Charles de Gaules Airport

    by Bela_LUng Written Aug 19, 2006

    CDG is a fully featured airport located about 40 kilometers outside of Paris. Major carriers land here. The airport has all the features of a major airport you'd expect, including the bad parts. The airport has three terminals, all connected to each other by a series of buses that sometimes make sense, and at other times just baffle the mind.
    To go between terminals, take Ligne 5. Otherwise, check the front of each bus for which terminals it services.

    You can catch the RER at terminal 1 and at terminal 2. A train ride to Paris from CDG costs about 8 euros and takes about 45 minutes to get to Gare du Nord (from which you can grab a metro). Make sure to keep your ticket handy since you need it to exit the station.

    You can take a cab from the airport but wow, if you're that rich, then you don't need VT to help you out. Enjoy your champagne in first class. :P

Special thanks for the Beauvais bus terminal map that is far better than the one of the official beauvais airport site. Information about Train - Shuttle and bus transfer - transfer to disneyland too. Price and official websites listed.

    I caught the Easyjet evening flight from London Luton airport to CDG. Very simple procedure at both ends and at a low cost I shall be using them again.
