Man to Mauritius via CDG

Quick question we are traveling to Mauritius from Manchester connecting with the Air France flight at CDG. Both flights are with Air France (or code share).

According to all the info we have we arrive at 2E and depart from 2E. Do we have to go through passport control or do we just find the departing gate and wait.

Hopefully bags will be checked in for the full flight

Lastly according to the flight times we have about 1 hr 15m between flights. Is this long enough, understanding that delays do happen.

Never connected through CDG before, so just asking.

Thanks in advance.

- You will remain air-side at CDG (so no passport control)

- Luggage will be check through (so you'll collect them in Mauritius)

- 75 minutes is enough. Should your first flight be late, AF will put you on the next available flight (2 per day almost every day)

- 45 minutes is the critical time at CDG. Anything above is normally working

- CDG 2E has two satellites (http://www.aeroportsdeparis.fr/ADP/en-GB/Passagers/Access-maps-car-parks/Paris-CDG/maps/ for the details)

Enjoy Mauritius

> CDG 2E has two satellites

Transfer between which is by shuttle train, just several minutes. You will also need to go through security control.

2E to 2E connection is one of the simplest in CDG. 45 minutes would be just enough; 75 minutes is plentiful.

In the end we have decided to go via Dubai from manchester on Emirates.

Not based upon anything other than the dates we wanted meant we could not go premium economy with Air Mauritius.
