  Arriving at Paris Charles de Gaulle                                Airlines serving CDG


Paris airports are amongst the busiest in the world so it can be a bit daunting arriving here after a long-haul flight and having to either get into the city or to continue on to your final destination.

If you have arrived at Paris CDG airport, tired, disoriented and wondering how to get to the next stage of your trip, we have put together some information to hopefully help make your arrival slightly less stressful.


You have arrived at Paris Charles de Gaulle or is that 'Aéroport de Paris', 'Aéroport Charles de Gaulle' (CDG), 'Paris-Charles de Gaulle', Roissy Charles de Gaulle?, Aéroport de Roissy or just plain old Roissy? no matter, you are where you should be!

Many people find the airport difficult to negotiate but although it is a very large  airport complex it is all well signposted in French and English. Whether it's terminal 1, 2 or 3 you'll pass through passport control and customs. If you leave the aircraft in the first group of passengers you should expect to get through immigration fairly quickly but allow yourself anything from 10 mins to 1hour.

Then its on to baggage reclamation - you can expect to wait around half an hour at the carousel  - there's a lot of bags going through here!  After collecting your bags (make use of free trolleys if you have more than hand luggage) you head through customs - normally only random checks are done here so stroll confidently through! After customs you'll exit into one of the general areas of Charles de Gaulle Airport where you can  make your way to Paris or another destination.
