CDG would be much more pleasant if 2E were operating. Without it, it is a V6 firing on 4 1/2 cylinders! Hence, nowhere near enough gates to handle the traffic at T2
, hence buses to stands. Then, T2
is very big and stradles two sides of a four lane highway. There are underpasses and you can actually walk between any two T2
terminal sectors, but you need some time and energy. Hence, intra-T2
buses. Finally, if you have the bad manners not to be flying a SkyTeam carrier (or one world BA
) then you are at T1. If you need to connect form T2
to T1, guess what? More buses.
Good news, next year the intra-Roissy train will open, eliminating buses between terminals. Then when 2E is rebuilt, there will be almost enough gates and fewer planes and stands, hence fewer air-side buses. Heaven.
When all's said and done, there'll be more said than done.
