New Connection Routes at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport

New Connection Routes at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport

Passengers in transit in Terminals 2E and 2F at Paris CDG Airport can now benefit from new connection routes to their departure lounges that are direct, simpler and quicker.

“The new Paris Charles de Gaulle hub connection routes strengthen the competitive potential of Europe’s leading connection platform,” said Franck Goldnadel, Managing Director of Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. “Aéroports de Paris has invested almost €100 million in this project. This new structure will allow almost ten thousand passengers to follow these routes daily, save time, and, above all, enjoy a simpler and smoother connection.”

All passengers in transit in Terminals 2E and 2F (whether or not they are arriving from a country in the Schengen zone) will now follow the new pedestrian paths that lead directly to their new departure gate, without having to venture into the public areas.

Furthermore, passengers arriving from a country in the Schengen zone and departing for an international destination will undergo no further security checks. This will result in an estimated average gain of 10 minutes on the previous route.

How It Works

Let us imagine that a passenger has arrived from Lisbon and is leaving for Shanghai via Paris Charles de Gaulle.

The passenger has passed through the screening checkpoints in Lisbon and arrives at Terminal 2F (Schengen terminal). From Terminal 2F, they take a direct pedestrian route to Terminal 2E (international terminal). It is no longer necessary to pass through the public area and undergo more security checks.

This system marks the final completion of the substantial transformation of the Paris Charles de Gaulle hub that began in 2012 with the June opening of Hall M, followed by the grouping together of Air France flights and those of its Skyteam alliance partners in Terminals E and F in October.
