Paris Charles de Gaulle Train Delays

By | Category: Travel news

France is probably the most visited country by Brits and Paris, one of the busiest cities to go to. Although, not as many of us fly as we used to since we have Eurostar, the numbers are still large. I hadn’t flown to Charles de Gaulle airport for a few years until Saturday. Like others I was unaware of some engineering work that is taking place on the railways that might delay your journey so here is the news.
There is no train service to the airport over the next few weekends, the 2/3rd and 9/10th of October. Then there will be a gap and the weekend of the 6/7th of November will also have no trains to the airport. What will happen is that you can buy your RER/metro ticket in the usual way and you go to the coach station. There, shuttle buses will take you to Mitry-Claye station where you can get into the middle of Paris in about 40 minutes. The engineering works is between Aulnay-sous-Bois and the airport.
This is going to add about another 30-45 minutes to your journey as the queues to catch the coaches can be quite long at busy times. The buses run every 10 minutes but I found that they were moving much more often. As one bus unloaded incoming passengers it was off again with a full load back to Mitry-Claye.
There are red-jacketed information people around to help you and many have some English as well or can direct you to someone.
