Luggage Drop

Is there a secure place to temporarily store luggage in CDG? I have a very long layover in CDG (10 hours!) and plan to spend it downtown. I have done this before and left my luggage in the business lounge, but I don't like to do this because it is not secure (and probably not allowed, even though the lounge agent suggested it).

In other airports I have seen self serve lockers, or a storage room with an attendant. Any suggestions for CDG? I am connecting in 2C (both flights), but I don't mind going to another terminal for this purpose.

Hello guys,

This Friday I'm flying TXL-CDG-AMS with a 50 min connection time in CDG. I will have to go from 2D to 2F. Is this doable for someone who doesn't have much experience at CDG?

Thanks for your help!

Kind regards,
Maurits

You need 10mn at the utmost from the time you reach 2D in order to arrive at security in 2F1. Just follow the moving walkways to the TGV station and from there to 2F1. It is a simple straight line. . From security in 2F1, it is 5mn to any gate. So it is quite doable, except if your flight from TXL is late. If it arrives at a remote stand, you should also factor in an additional 15mn to reach 2D.

Enjoy your flights

Flying Delta into CDG next week. Flight 22 (777) which I believe arrives at 2E at 7:45am. We are connecting onto Air France to Vienna at 9:40am which has been regularly departing from 2D. Is it an easy walk from 2E to 2D, and do we have to be bussed into 2E?

I assume that if the flight is on time, we would have plenty of time to connect. Anyone have any info on the latest we can arrive and still make the connection

I saw these directions posted earlier for someone else.

step 1: leave the bus at E Terminal
step 2: clear immigration
step 3: walk thru baggage claim and customs to F terminal
step 4: go thru security at the left wing in the F terminal
step 5: go to your boarding gate and again ... have a nice flight


I have never flown to this airport before and have seen horror stories about it on several sites. My question is what bus are you talking about and how do I get to it? I arrive at 2E and need to get to 2F. I only have 45 minutes. Is that even possible? I have called Air France, they tell me no problem. The guy told me not to even go to the regular customs line, but to go to my departure gate (2F) and the people at the counter would tell me what to do. That doesn't sound right.

Is there an online map of this airport so I can get an idea of what I am dealing with?

Thanks!

I don't understand this. I am flying from Dallas to Atlanta to Paris to Rome. I arrive 2E and depart 2F . Does that help?

in this case you found the right steps to take.
on arrival at 2E clear immigration and customs, go landside, take the tunnel to 2F Terminal. and here you go.

If I go landside, don't I have to go through security again? I only have 45 minutes to make my connection.

On the online map, is La galerie the tunnel you are talking about?

Thanks

you have to clear security again, but that is not the problem. even staying airside and taking the shuttle bus which takes you ages ... you'd have to pass security again. don't worry, you'll make it... no TSA in europe
