France is well served by its airports, with international airports at major city locations and an excellent selection of regional airports countrywide. Its capital city,Paris,is also its most popular destination and is served by three Paris airports...
France's flagship airport is 'Paris-Charles de Gaulle' also somewhat confusingly referred to as Aéroport Charles de Gaulle' (CDG), Aéroport de Paris', 'Roissy Charles de Gaulle, l’Aéroport de Roissy or just plain old Roissy.
The airport is located 23 km northeast of the city. Its three terminals handle international flights, flights to other European destinations plus domestic and charter flights. You have a number of easy options for transport into central Paris.
Orly is located 14km south of central Paris. It now has four terminals which are linked by a complimentary shuttle train service. Before the construction of Charles de Gaulle Airport it had been Paris's main international airport.
Most but not all of the international traffic moved to CDG but Orly is still one of the busiest airports in France for domestic traffic. It is better located for direct access into Paris central
Beauvais is a small airport 90 km northwest of the city of Paris that has become the gateway to the city for a number of budget airlines including Ryanair, Blue Air and Wizzair.
It has 'annexed' the city name the way many regional airports that are close to major cities have, to make them more readily recognised from a location point of view, with no intention to deceive we are sure. It is actually in the village of Tillé just outside the town of Beauvais.
