Paris is a large conurbation where the official residence of the Republic's President is located. It also hosts the two airports that serve the metropolis. Roissy Charles de Gaulle (CDG) is the primary airport in the city with a capacity to serve up to 80 million passengers a year. It is equipped with modern amenities including parking spaces, shops, restaurants and banks. There are also several hotels inside the airport terminal which are just a few minutes away after going through customs and immigration. The other important airport is Paris-Orly, which operates flights to European and non-European destinations. It features comfortable lounges, baby areas and car parks.
You can reach CDG Airport using public transport, with the easiest method being to take a taxi from your hotel or arrange shared rides using vans or shuttles. Other viable options include taking the train (RER B and SNCF Main Lines). Once at the airport, the CDGVAL automated train will connect you between the three terminals. Buses and coaches are other ways to arrive at CDG from downtown. To get to Orly Airport, catch the RER B and C trains as well as Tramway 7. Buses and taxis will take you to the airport as well. If driving, get on the A6 or A10 and follow the signs to Orly Airport.
