Gzb, India (PressExposure) July 01, 2011 -- Charles De Gaulle airport is one of the major airports situated in the north-east of Paris City. Charles De Gaulle also known as Roissy Airport. The airport boasts of three terminals, Terminal 1, Terminal 2 and Terminal 3. The terminal 2 at the Charles De Gaulle airport is so big that it has been sub-divided into 7 parts and named from 2A to 2G. The terminal 3 was formerly known as T9. If you are traveling via Paris or have a stopover at the place then you must check, which terminal is printed in the ticket. Since the Charles De Gaulle airport is a very huge airport, people traveling for the first time tend to lose the sense of direction and time at the airport.
There is a CDGVAL shuttle train, which is a free service, connecting different terminals. This shuttle service runs in about every 20 minutes or so. There is also a CDGVAL floor which houses the food court at the Charles De Gaulle airport. One should be extremely careful as to which terminal your next flight will depart from. This is because the shuttle train makes two stopovers to cover all the three terminals at the Charles De Gaulle airport. And there are few indications to show where the terminals are and which flight will depart from that particular terminal. Normally, the Air France flights depart from Terminal 2.
One peculiar thing about the airport is that there are hardly any benches to sit and there are no public showers around. There are specific lounges for the Air France travelers at the Charles De Gaulle airport which are only accessible to the people traveling in the business and first class. For others, there is some fee which needs to be paid for accessing the Air France Lounge at the Charles De Gaulle airport.
