Airport - Between the two airports 50 million
passengers fly in and out of Paris annually, with
flights to 500 cities in 132 countries. Most international
flights arrive at Roissy/CDG. The domestic French
flights mostly arrive at Orly-Ouest. Both airports
offer many services including shopping, restaurants,
hotels, post offices, and ground transport into the
center of the city. To get from the airports to Paris
is possible by car, taxi, bus, RER (train), privately-operated
shuttles, and limousines.
Roissy Airport is located 30 km from
central Paris and we do not recommend taking a taxi.
They as these can be rather costly. The RER
B Métro Line (regional métro
system) serves airport terminals 1, 2, and T9. It runs
from 5 a.m. to 12 midnight and departing every 10-15
minutes on weekdays. The journey takes about 25 minutes.
The Roissybus is a special RATP
Service running between 6:00 a.m. - 11:00 p.m.,
the Roissybus departs every 15 minutes (or 20 minutes
after 7 p.m.), and the journey lasts approximately 45
to 60 minutes. The bus lines 350 Bus 350 — 9:30
p.m. from Roissy/CDG Bus 351 — 8:20 p.m. from
Roissy/CDG. The Air France Bus is an express shuttle.
Hours of operation are 5:45 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.
An affordable alternative to the high cost of taxis
and other private transportation, Airport Connection
offers a fleet of air-conditioned, non-smoking, 8-passenger
minivans with courteous English-speaking drivers who
will assist you with your luggage, and drive you safely
from any CDG terminal directly to your hotel or convention
