Flights from Manchester to Paris take just an hour and twenty minutes, and with such a short journey time there should be little need to consider a connecting flight. Should a stop be absolutely necessary then it will likely be a brief connection in a city such as Amsterdam, Copenhagen or London.
Charles de Gaulle is the French capital’s biggest airport, and there are a great number of flights each day from Manchester to Paris. There are departures right through the day, meaning you can tailor your trip around commitments at home or what time you wish to touch down at the other end.
There are often excellent deals to be found on flights arriving at Beauvais Airport, which is located around 55 miles away from Paris’ city centre. The Paris Beauvais Airport Train from the central Gare du Nord station takes around an hour and a quarter, leaving a shuttle or taxi to complete the journey to the airport itself. Trains run approximately every 40 minutes and are by far cheaper than taking a taxi the whole distance, which costs around 120 euros. The SuperShuttle service also operates to the city and Disneyland, with tickets costing 32 euros for the first adult and 22 euros for the second.
The RER B line transports passengers from Charles de Gaulle to Paris and its suburbs, with tickets only costing around 10 euros for a journey that will take around half an hour to central stops such as Gare du Nord and Chatelet les Halles, which connects to four metro lines and three RER train lines. Shuttle buses are similarly priced to the train yet will take twice as long while being subject to traffic problems.
Numerous car rental companies operate from Charles de Gaulle, including Avis, Budget, Enterprise and Hertz.
