March 14th, 2009 by paris

The Air France Bus is a transportation system that runs between the Charles de Gaulle and Orly Airports to various destinations in Paris. Air France Bus has five separate lines. You do **NOT** need to travel with Air France inorder to travel in the Air France Bus.

Tickets start as low as 11.50 euros for a one-way ticket and 18.50 euros for a round-trip ticket. Children ages 2-11 are able to ride on these buses for as little as 5.50 euros per ticket, and children under 2 can ride for free.

Tickets for an Air France Bus can easily be purchased from either the bus drivers or the Air France ticket offices located in the airport terminals. At Charles de Gaulle, the Air France Bus service departs from terminals 1, B, D, E, and F. Orly offers this transportation service at their south and west terminals.

Travelers who are arriving or departing from Paris can take the following Air France Bus lines:

  1. Charles de Gaulle-Port Maillot-Etoile,
  2. Charles de Gaulle-Orly,
  3. Charles de Gaulle-Gare de Lyon-Gare Montparnasse.
  4. Orly-Gare Montparnasse-Invalides,
  5. Orly-Gare Montparnasse-Etoile,

The bus lines operate seven days a week from 5:45 AM until 11:15 PM. This service is much less expensive for travelers than taking a cab from the airports into Paris or vice-versa. Tickets do not need to be purchased days in advance.

The Air France Bus service prides itself on offering air-conditioned coaches with reclining seats, baggage handlers who will both load and unload luggage, and frequent stops at the designated terminals. The buses are equipped with a Global Positioning System that allows for the use of alternate lanes when traffic is delayed.
