Transferring ORY-CDG

Tue Dec 11, 2012 3:42 pm

Tomorrow I fly LCY-ORY, then CDG-JNB on CityJet/AF.

I have an STA into ORY of 1755 - which means I guess I will hit rush hour traffic. How long does the AF coach take on average to get to CDG? CDG-JNB departs at 2320. Is this still plenty of time? I have never used ORY before, so am unfamiliar with the airport. Have used CDG once.

I assume it is perfectly doable, else the itinerary wouldn't be ticketed.

Grateful for any tips.

In rush hour it might be best to use the train. Take the Orlyval shuttle train to Antony then the RER B line to CDG - no changes, should take about 1h20 total though I'd check on ratp.fr.
Enjoy South Africa!

Thanks for that - but any idea how long the coach might take at that time if I chose that route?

According to:
http://www.lescarsairfrance.com/
The journey should take 1h30, depending on traffic.

Yeah, I saw the average. Even if it takes three hours it should be ok, so I'll probably just stick with that.

For the record - it took one hour on the coach, so made it with bags of time.
