British Airways operates frequent direct flights to Paris from London. Conveniently, we offer flights to both Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports. From either airport, a 30 minutes train ride will take you to the chic Parisian boutiques in bohemian Marais or to the upmarket Saint German where you can sample fine French cuisine.
Paris Charles de Gaulle airport is located 23 kilometres (14 miles) from the city centre. After your flight, you have numerous transport options into central Paris. Buses and taxis depart from outside Arrivals and travel into Paris on autoroute (motorway) A1. The fastest way into Paris after your flight is by train from the railway station at Terminal 2. Catch the RER (Paris Regional Express Rail), which will take you directly from the terminal building into central Paris (Gare du Nord and Châtelet-Les Halles) in around 30 minutes. There is also a TGV (high-speed train) station inside the terminal building which can take you to most cities in France and Belgium.
Paris Orly airport is located 13 km (8 miles) South of central Paris. After your flight, there are several options to get to the city centre. You can catch a bus (the Orlybus offers a direct service) or a taxi, both of which take 20-30 minutes. The RER (Paris Regional Express Rail) is also available and takes 25 minutes. However, you will need to reach the RER station by either bus or shuttle train (Orlyval), which takes 5-10 minutes.
After your flight, Paris offers enjoyable and romantic places to stroll, from hilly Montmartre with its villagey atmosphere to the cobbled streets of the Marais. Or take a seat at a Paris café after your flight and watch the world go by as you plan Parisian sightseeing over strong coffee and buttery croissants. Buy affordable Paris style from stores in the rue de Rennes and presents in the underground Carousel du Louvre. Pack your goodies safely in a suitcase, ready for your return flights from Paris.
