There are at least two principles at work
- some terminals are dedicated : International non-Schengen for 2A, 2C, 2F2, 2E and part of 2B, Schengen for part of 2B, 2D
and 2F1 (the ultimate goal is for AF
to leave 2A and 2B and to convert 2F2 into a Schengen terminal). With recent events, there will obviously be changes.
wants to minimize the connection time of its passengers, not on an abstract level, but based on the flows which have been recorded and which are anticipated, with the core of the hub centered on the 2E/2F duo and the forthcoming S3 satellite.. This determines in which terminal each flight (Schengen vs non Schengen) is allocated. This, on the other hand, can not easily be measured by anyone outside AF.
's hub strategy can be seen at the following location
