Hi,

Just wondering if anyone here is interested in an Airliners.net get-together at the 2003 Paris Air Show? AFAIK, the public dates this year are the 21st and 22nd June.

Paris is very accessible from much of Europe with the Low Cost Airlines.

Anyone interested? Ideas? Suggestions?

Jeremiah

Hi there,

In the summer I may be moving to AMS, so in the meantime I may be able to catch a free flight down to CDG using my dads company, and if I can I wouldn't mind meeting up with you guys (maybe share a hotel room???).

Cheers,

Dan

Okay since the reception so far hasn’t been too bad, I’ll throw one more question. If you were to go, on what day would it be? Saturday or Sunday? I believe Saturday is sometimes better but am not sure?

Put me on the list of "If I can,. I will."

I'll try and track cheap fares that let me come for the weekend and nail something down.  Smile I've always wanted to do the Paris Air Show...

Hmmm...a big spotting trip to Europe with a good buddy of mine is in order for sometime during June. I just have to precise which dates...and the thought of the Paris Air Show just may play a roll!

I'd go for Saturday but I'll probably be there for more than one day. By the way, any hotel recommendations?

Airways: I am also planning to stay at Paris overnight, maybe we can agree on one hotel, than we can have a beer at the hotel bar in the evening and discuss about the show.

B747-437B: It would be nice to meet you there, I hope you can arrange a visit to the Paris Air Show.

Sabena332: Good Idea! But do you know some hotels in the area? I have never been at the show, don't know where's the best place to stay there. Furthermore, I think the hotels will be pretty full during the show.

Michael, unfortunately I do not know any hotel in the area because I have never visited the Paris Air Show or the city. During the last two years I flew 8 times to Paris but only for transfer at CDG Big grin. But no problem, finding a hotel is very easy but we should hurry up because I can imagine that many hotels are booked out during the air show.

By no mean would I want to miss the Paris Air Show (esp with my parents living in Paris, and myself just 3 hours away!)

So, a A.net meeting on the saturday would be cool

Does anyone here know how easy it is to get from Paris-Orly to the airshow? Would also be good to have information about getting from CDG for other people.

BDRules,

It is being held at Le Bourget.

The airshow is held at Le Bourget airport which is more or less between the city and Charles de Gaulle airport.

I know of a cheapish hotel near to Le Bourget. its about 70 Euros per night B&CB per room can have a look into it for you lot if required

I personally hope to do a day return from Geneva (be it flying easyJet or going by TGV, despite being an aviation enthusiast I’d kind of prefer the latter having never taken it)

As for hotels, if you are on a really tiny budget, Formule 1 hotels might be worth checking out. €26 per room for up to three people but you must share a bathroom. There are a good few in the Paris area and reading on Travel Forums, they are apparently very good.

Ibis hotels are also pretty good and cheap.
