Airlines that fly from London to Paris

Four airlines currently fly from London to Paris: CityJet from London-City to Paris-Orly; Air France from London-Heathrow to Paris-Charles de Gaulle; British Airways from London-Heathrow to Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly; and easyJet from London-Gatwick and Luton to Paris-Charles de Gaulle.

Terminal Information - Departing

London-City operates a quiet airport policy, with no tannoy announcements. This is great if you want to make the most of the free Wi-Fi to get on with some work, but means you will need to pay close attention to the departure boards to avoid missing your gate. There are a few coffee and sandwich shops where you can buy refreshments, and some duty free and jewellery stores so you can pick up last minute gifts.

Flights to Paris from London-Heathrow generally depart from Terminal 5. This is a fantastic terminal packed with luxury shops and great restaurants. Grab a bite to eat before you fly at Gordon Ramsay’s Plane Food, or pick up some British delicacies at Fortnum & Mason. If you’ve got a lot of time on your hands, you can enlist the services of Heathrow’s Personal Shopper to help you put together a stylish new look.

Flights to Paris from London-Gatwick usually leave from the North Terminal. If you’re travelling to the airport by coach make sure you get off at the right stop. If you’re arriving on the Gatwick Express you will need to take the Inter-Terminal shuttle to reach the North Terminal. Once you arrive you’ll find plenty of large shops and restaurants, with plenty of places to relax before you fly.

Terminal Information - Arriving

Air France and British Airways flights usually arrive at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Terminal 2E, while Easyjet usually land at Terminal 2D. The terminals all share a TGV high speed train station, and the whole of Terminal 2 is served by buses: Air France bus, Roissybus, and local routes 350 and 351.

Most flights from London to Paris-Orly land at Terminal Ouest (the East Terminal). Taxis and buses are both available from this terminal, so it’s unlikely you will need to transfer to Terminal Sud (the South Terminal) unless you’re catching a connecting flight.

Practical Information

You need a valid passport to visit France from the UK. Check that your passport won’t expire while you’re away: if it does you might not be allowed to leave London. We recommend arriving at the airport at least 90 minutes before your flight, leaving a little longer if you need to check luggage, if you’re travelling during rush hour, or if it’s a weekend. The school holidays can be quite hectic at the airport, with long queues at security.

What to expect in Paris

Paris is an extremely expensive city. At the moment the Euro is weak against the pound, so prices won’t be too unreasonable: especially compared to London. Restaurant prices are especially wallet friendly, nearly 20% cheaper than the London average. For a mid-range three-course meal for two in Paris you can expect to pay about €50 (£35.60).

Remember to set your watch: France is one hour ahead of the UK. Most shops, restaurants and museums in Paris close for one day a week: usually Sunday, Monday or Tuesday. Plan carefully and make sure the attraction you want to visit is definitely open.
