Paris Airports

Paris is home to two main airports, Charles de Gaulle (CDG) and Orly (ORY), although many also fly into the City of Lights through the budget airlines airport Beauvais Tillé (BVA). Situated approximately 15 minutes from the city center as the largest airport in Paris, Charles de Gaulle serves both main international and budget airlines. Located closer to the city, Orly stands as the next most accessed airport in Paris also serving alternative airlines. Beauvais is the furthest of all three in a town outside of Paris, Tillé, and works with airlines such as Ryanair.
