Paris Airport and Transportation

How to get to and from the airport, and getting around the city on public transportation

Paris Airports

Charles de Gaulle Airport is 27km (17mi) north of Paris. To reach the center of the city, use the excellent rail service (the RER) that departs every 15 minutes.
The city's second main airport, Aéroport d'Orly, is 16km (10mi) south of central Paris. You may also take the RER train service to the center.
If you're arriving on a charter flight or a low-cost airline such as Ryanair, you'll be landing in the smaller Beauvais Airport. Take the airport bus to central Paris, with the journey time taking about 80 minutes.
