AF Lounge Access CDG non-schengen to schengen transfer

AF Lounge Access CDG non-schengen to schengen transfer

  1. Rohit Deshpande

    Hey all, so I will be flying from Washington DC to Paris in AF Business class, and connecting to Rome also in business with a 9 hour layover in cdg. I’ve flown through CDG in the past but actually never on AF so i’m not too familiar with non-schengen to schengen transfers. I know that upon arriving into CDG, I would have access to the schengen zone lounges in terminals 2F and 2G (I think??), but with 9 hours I would also love to spend time in the far superior non-schengen lounges. Is there any way I can connect to the non-schengen zones and use those lounges, and then head to the schengen zones? Or any such thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I dont think you can – on arrival you’ll be directed to immigration to enter Europe and I remember being told I couldnt access a specific concourse since my flight didnt depart from there.

    Each time we enter CDG from MIA with destination on AF to Nantes, we pass through immigration and are pushed to the non-secure area where there is a big AF Lounge at joint of 2A and 2C. We spend time there until time to leave, walk to 2F where we check-in to our small Airbus to NTE.

    Oh so is there a way to get there airside after arriving from my flight from IAD? I understand distances are large at CDG especially within terminal 2 but I got 9 hours so I got all the time in the world to spare, and a nice long walk I certainly don’t mind

    Me: Im not familiar with the Schengen definition. I call it curbside / airside.
    Here is my report again: After arrival airside, its Immigration and then finish curbside where there is that AF Lounge at 2A/2C split. We then walk to AF at opposite side of airport to one of the other Terminal 2 Halls where you check in for the second leg of the flight. I have never arrived and departed from the same Hall/ Terminal. The walk from 2C to the opposite side to 2F is not a long walk. The hardest part is checking in luggage with the auto-check-in machines. I think there are more AF lounges as 2D/ 2E/ 2F etc. But, we always simply head for large curbside AF lounge at 2A/2C.
