Paris France Air Flights

Paris has two major airports. Which one you choose depends mostly on the flights available to you. If you are taking a domestic flight, check both airports as rates may differ.

Charles-de-Gaulle is 12 miles north of Paris.  It is the busier of Paris's two airfields.  Both terminals have tourist information and money exchange.  The trip from the airport to the center of town by road takes about 45 minutes.  The RER train also provides 45 minute service.  Rush hour will delay both the trains and road access to the airport

Orly is 9 miles south of Paris.  Both terminals have money exchange and tourist information.  The trip from Orly to the center of town takes about 45 minutes in non rush-hour traffic.
