Airlines that fly from Manchester to Paris

Air France and Flybe both fly to Paris-Charles de Gaulle from Manchester Airport. Ryanair also offer seasonal flights to Beauvais, an airport 55 miles away from Paris.

Terminal Information - Departing

Air France, Flybe, and Ryanair all depart from Terminal 3. This is a fairly no-frills terminal. Shops include Biza Tax & Duty Free, Dixons Travel, Boots, and Accessorize. If you’re hungry your choices are fairly limited. You can grab a sandwich at Costa, Caffe Nero, and Upper Crust, or sit down for an Italian meal at Trattoria Milano. You can enjoy an hour of free Wi-Fi, and after that the price goes up to £5 per hour. If you want to relax before your flight you can book into the Escape Airport Lounge. This has free Wi-fi and complementary refreshments, with snacks and drinks included. Prices start at £18.45.

Terminal Information - Arriving

Flights from Manchester usually arrive at Terminal 2E in Charles de Gaulle Airport. You will have no problem getting to Paris from this terminal. The TGV Railway station is in the direction of Terminal 2C. Air France Bus, Roissybus, and local routes 350 and 351 serve Terminal 2. There’s a taxi stand outside Gate 10.

Beauvais Airport only has one terminal. Ryanair shuttle buses meet every flight and provide a reasonably priced method of reaching Paris.

Practical Information

You need a valid passport to travel to France from the UK. Make sure that it’s valid for the entire duration of your stay. You should also have an up to date European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) to cover any minor illnesses.

You should try to arrive at the airport at least 90 minutes before your flight departs. Leave extra time during the summer holidays or on weekends, when queues at security are likely to be longer.

What to expect in Paris

Paris is a notoriously expensive city, but as the Euro is weak against the pound you can squeeze more croissants, macarons, and swanky art galleries into your visit. Manchester prices are nearly 10% higher than prices in Paris, so you can definitely enjoy a foodie holiday.

The 24 hour culture we’re used to in the UK doesn’t exist in France. Many shops close on Sundays, some restaurants take the day off on Mondays, and a number of museums close their doors on Tuesdays. If you’re planning a romantic break in Paris it pays to check your schedule with local opening hours.

France is one hour ahead of the UK, so you won’t be too jetlagged when you get home. Paris has a similar climate to Manchester, with a fairly chilly winter and a warm summer. Temperatures will be a few degrees higher (you are flying south, after all) so you might want to pick up some sun lotion from Boots at Manchester Airport.
