Transit information 

Essential information if you're transferring between flights at Paris-Charles de Gaulle.

It is simple when you know how!

How much time?

Your connection time depends on your route, airline and whether you need to pick up baggage or change terminals.
If you book a through-ticket with an airline or travel agent, your airline will generally quote a minimum connection time.

However, if you booked your flights separately, these minimum connection times don't apply.
You should allow extra time to clear baggage reclaim and passport control, transfer between terminals,
then check in and clear security for your outbound flight.

Connecting time

When booking your ticket, always mind a minimum connecting time.
Check how much time you have between flights to travel between teminals, to perform security procedures...

Minimum transfer time recommended by "easyCDG":
60 minutes intra Terminal 1/2/3
75 minutes between terminals 1 and 2
90 minutes between terminals 1/2 and Terminal 3.

Minimum connection times
Only apply if you have booked a through-ticket and any baggage is checked through to your final destination.
