Transfer passengers in terminals 2E and 2F can now benefit from new
direct, simpler and quicker connection routes to their departure lounges.
"The new Paris-Charles de Gaulle connection routes strengthen the
competitive potential of Europe's leading hub. Aroports de Paris has
invested almost 100 million euros in this project. This new structure
will allow almost ten thousand passengers, transiting through
Paris-Charles de Gaulle daily, to save time and, above all, enjoy a
streamlined connection", says Franck Goldnadel, Managing
Director of Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport.
All transfer passengers in Terminals 2E and 2F (whether or not arriving
from a country in the Schengen area) will now follow the new pedestrian
paths which lead directly to their new departure gate, without having to
venture into the public areas.
Furthermore, passengers arriving from a country in the Schengen area and
departing for an international destination will undergo no further
security checks. This will result in an estimated average gain of ten
minutes on the previous route.
How does it work?Let us take the example of a passenger
arriving from Lisbon and departing for Shanghai via Paris-Charles de
Gaulle.The passenger goes through the screening checkpoints in
Lisbon and arrives at Terminal 2F (Schengen terminal). From Terminal 2F,
they take a direct pedestrian route to Terminal 2E (international
terminal). It is no longer necessary to pass through the public area and
undergo more security checks.
This system marks the final completion of the substantial transformation
of the Paris-Charles de Gaulle hub that began in 2012 with opening of
Hall M last June, followed by the location of flights operated by Air
France and its Skyteam partners in Terminals E and F in October.
