CDG: Transit Time Question

Hi Guys, I probably should post this on Asia board too but here is the question. I am an U.S. citizen flying through Charles de Gaulle on the way to India. Is two hours enough to get to the next plane? Both are Air France flights. Do I need to walk through passport control and all the good stuff? Please refresh my memory of the process. Thanks so much!

Hi CS,

>flying through Charles de Gaulle on the way to India. Is two hours enough to get to the next plane?

Most likely, but much depends on traffic at CDG.

>Do I need to walk through passport control and all the good stuff?

Yup.

Also your plane might come in late, and land at a very distant runway from which you will have to take a shuttle bus to the terminal.

Is there another plane to India after yours?

Hi,
if its all on AF there shouldnt be any problem. Airfrance will check your luggage through and you can stay at the transit area.

It's enough. You won't go through immigration. Just security. Most longhaul AF international flights now use Terminal 2E, so no change of terminal, though many gates are in the S3 satellite building linked to 2E by an automatic train.

2 hours is no problem.

ira - US-CDG-India is a pure international transit. No passport control.

I always see lots of Indians on the Air France flights to and from the US, so I would assume that the transit works well enough to keep them coming.
