Paris Airport (PARI) information

Getting there

· Paris has three major airports that service the city, but Paris is known for its excellent transportation, and each airport is well-connected to the centre of town.

· Because Paris’ traffic can be quite dense, taking a taxi is not always the most efficient option, and it tends to be pretty expensive. From the Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG), it can cost over 60EUR ($90), from Orly Airport 35EUR ($52), and from Beauvais-Tille (BVA) up to 100EUR ($150). However, there are train links, and bus links, which are both fast and cheap and depart from central locations around the city direct to these three hubs. Approximate costs are about 10EUR ($15) per person travelling.

Terminal Information

· The airports of Paris are Charles de Gaulle International Airport (CDG), Orly Airport (ORY) and Beauvais-Tille Airport (BVA). The biggest and busiest airport is the Charles de Gaulle, but ORY and BVA tend to handle domestic, and inter-continental flights. All three airports come with duty-free shops, bureaux de change, ATMs, a plethora of restaurants serving international and French cuisine, as well as access to WiFi.

· Madrid-Barajas Airport (MAD) is also a premier airport, and the shopping and dining options here won’t disappoint. For services, you can count on free wireless internet, plenty of cash machines, as well as currency exchange and banking services.
