FRENCH AIRPORT and AIRLINE GUIDE
by REGION  -  Updated for 2017


Private or shared shuttle - car or minibus direct to your hotel or destination : check rates with Hoppa airport transfers.

Cheapest tickets ?

Experience shows that generally speaking, you'll get the best rates by booking directly with the airline, specially if it is a low-cost airline. Online ticket-booking portals may sometimes appear to offer lower prices than you can get directly on the airline's own booking site; but don't be taken in. Check out all the extras first.  In April 2016, About-France.com found several popular sites purporting to sell tickets on one of the big low-cost airlies for less than the ticket price for an identical journey advertised on the airline site.  So we went through with the process. By the time we came to checkout, the bill on the supposedly cheaper external ticketing site  came to about £200; if we'd bought the tickets directly on the airline site, it would have been about £ 30 less.
  The differences? The external ticketing site charged about £7 more per item of hold luggage than the airline was charging; in addition they added their own handling fee.
  We can't say that all external ticketing sites do this; but if one does, it's likely that the others do too.


Flights to PARIS


Some routes listed below may be seasonal.

There are two commercial airports in Paris - Charles de Gaulle (CDG) and Orly (ORY). Paris - Charles de Gaulle airport is the main international airport, served by the worlds major airlines and many smaller airlines too. There are plenty of European and French domestic flights to/from CDG too. Paris Orly is mainly used for domestic flights, flights to North Africa and a limited number of European destinations . For more details on terminals and access, see Paris airports information.
  In addition to CDG and ORY, there are two other airports that Ryanair calls "Paris" – Beauvais and Vatry. Beauvais is used by east European low-cost companies too, and there are plenty of flights – enough to justify a regular bus service from Beauvais Airport to Paris, Porte Maillot, journey time is 1h 15 minutes... as long as there are no holdups. Paris Vatry, which is actually near Reims, is not used for UK flights.
