CDG terminal transfer and lounge access
Hi all – We are traveling in Delta One from PIT – CDG, then connecting to Air France from CDG to LIS (business class.) It looks like we are flying into terminal 2E and flying out of 2F and have a 4 hour layover. I’m trying to get my bearings on how CDG is arranged and which lounge will be most practical for us to access. Will we be able to use the newly renovated lounge in Hall L? Are the lounges located before or after immigration? How much time should we allow to transfer between terminals? Can it be done on foot or do we take the shuttle? Delta’s website states that the AF lounges are in the non-Schengen area. Does that affect our ability to access?
Thanks for your guidance. It’s been 10 years since I passed through CDG and want to get some sense of where I’m going on the day of travel.
Each hall has their own security. You’re not allowed to enter a hall unless your flight departs from there. I’m not sure you can access lounge on arrival at CDG since they will exit to the arrivals level, towards immigration.
You need to take a shuttle, I dont believe the halls are connected by walkways.
We are headed there again in a few hours and can try to chime in….. we land at T 2A then we walk on ground level to signs for 2F…..takes about 30 mins casually. With AF one needs to use a kiosk to check bags (we did all of the check-in online within their 30 hour window). This check-in with bags takes a while. Another 20 mins. Then head thru security at 2F which has two mini-wings…. When I clicked on the AF Lounges for 2F – it redirected me to the Arrivals Lounge at 2C.
You can use the arrivals lounge, and then Air France has lounges in each hall, including in the Schengen area. Security and immigration can take a VERY long time in Paris, so I would definitely spend the majority of your time in whatever lounge is closest to your gate.
