I was looking at a ticket to Lisbon and it says there is an airport change during the layover in Paris.


Flying into CDG, flying out of Orly. Has anyone ever done this before?


Do they provide transportation for the passengers from the first airport to the second airport? And how is baggage handled?


I doubt I'll purchase the ticket but if I were to do so and baggage is handled (meaning I wouldn't have to lug it around with me when leaving CDG), I might consider buying it and using that 12 hour layover in Paris to do a little sight seeing and lunch...

Your on your own to get from one airport to the other.

Here a info website about how to get from CDG to Orly

https://www.paristoolkit.com/airport...g_orly_bus.htm

You need to clear custom/immigration, Then take your bags, and your body to the other airport. You might be able to find a hotel to (Pay) hold your bags in the city while you tour Paris for few hours.

Another option is to hire a car/driver for the day, to take you from CDG to Orly and do some stops along the way.

But you will be tired when you get to CDG, so you might only have a few useful hours to sigh see,

This will probably help a bit:
Connections at Paris

You will have to collect your bags and go through customs.

One thing to consider ... there are companies that specialize in layover tours. Your bags are kept in the car/van/bus, and you get to see some of the sights, depending on the length of your layover. Just google "Paris layover tours."

I did something similar once where I flew into Gatwick and out of Heathrow. There was a special bus that takes you from one to the other, and (if I remember right) I didn't have to go through security. I seem to remember a half hour or so.

Don't do it, unless you are staying overnight between flights. Maybe not even then.

Thanks for the input everyone.


Yeah...this really does sound like a big pain and I think I will avoid this. I'm booking an award ticket so this is the first time I've even seen a layover with an airport change before. In theory having a half day in Paris sounds good but if I do this trip its already going to be rushed so I think I will stick to keeping the rest of the trip as simple as possible-which would definitely mean not doing this. Lol.

This is cool!


I didn't know that...thanks for the insight. I will definitely keep this in mind for future trips.
