ORY - very short connection

AF sold me a trip with a 1-hour connection, coming from JFK and continuing to NCE. The last time I flew the JFK-ORY flight, it arrived at a bus gate; I assume I have to go through passport control procedures because I'm connecting to a domestic flight within France.

Can someone give me some guidance on this? I know there are nearly hourly flights ORY-NCE, but wondering about the likelihood of making the one I booked.

Should be no problem. And worst case scenario if you miss it, they will rebook you on the next flight to NCE and there are plenty (every hour and even more at peak times).
brunos, joyu12 and offvoice like this.

As Goldorak said it is an easy connection with little wait in case of a rebooking. What probably changes from last time you flew JFK-ORY is the opening of Orly 3 and the airside transfer corridor which will allow you to clear passport control and transfer security on arrival instead of going landside as before, and walk directly to B-Gates (Ex-Hall 2). This should make the connection quicker than before
