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 have a peaceful 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 that 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) register (or not) your luggage? If you have booked your 2 flights on the same ticket with the same carrier or 2 partner airlines, your luggage will be transported “end to end”. On the other hand, if you have booked with 2 separate tickets; you will have to recover your luggage to re-register them.
3- Allow time for security control and border crossing It all depends on where you come from, your final destination and your passport (Schengen Area or not).
