What to do between two planes around Paris-Roissy CDG airport?
You have a few hours before your next flight? Rather than waiting at the airport, choose an activity to do according to your available time.
The precautions to take to successfully complete your stopover at CDG between 2 connecting flights: Paris-Charles de Gaulle is a very busy airport (more than 76 million travelers per year, 20% of which are connecting) with a configuration of terminals which can seem confusing. Our recommendations :
1- Evaluate the connecting journey time between your arrival flight and your departure flight . In other words, from your arrival flight, check the departure terminal, the boarding gate of your second flight on the information screens.
2- Do you have to (re) check (or not) your luggage? If you have booked your 2 flights on the same ticket with the same carrier or 2 partner companies, your luggage will be routed "end to end". However, if you have booked with 2 separate tickets; you will have to collect your luggage to re-register it.
3- Allow time for Security Check and border crossing It all depends on where you come from, your final destination and your passport (Schengen area or not).
