Paris Airport Made Easy

The nice people at CDG sent me their anglophone site. I checked out the site and found it to be useful for several reasons. CDG has two terminals T1 and T2. Very often tickets are issued without mentioning in which terminal you’ll be landing. This is a handy piece of information for any friends who might want to meet you at the airport. EasyCDG lists the names of the airlines and the terminals they use. The site also includes local temperature, airport layout, parking areas, lounge areas, boutiques, etc. There’s also good information about the SNCF train service out of CDG. For example, did you know you can take a Thalys(France’s high speed train) directly from CDG to Brussells, Belgium as well as TGV’s to several of France’s major cities including Aix-en-Provence, Angers, Avignon, Bordeaux, Grenoble, Le Mans, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Montpellier, Nantes, Nimes, Poitiers, Rennes, Toulouse, Tours and Valence.

Thalys is the name of the high speed train connecting CDG to Brussels, (Midi station) Belgium. It takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes for the 300 km trip according to CDG facile.
