Hi,

Does anyone know how far terminal 2F to 2C is at CDG? We would appreciate any info on transit times between the two, as I have heard the airport is disorganized and there are huge distances between terminals. We have a very short transit time of one and a half hours for an internatonal flight. I have tried posting on skytrak but they havent put my query on the board. Thanks.

Read a book.

Use Internet.

2F and 2C are next to one other. You can walk.

La Photographe,

Thanks a million for your helpful advice re: transit 2F to 2C at CDG! How long would it take to walk, as I have heard people have missed connections because of security checks etc. Many thanks! Merci beaucoup.

If you go from 2F to 2C , as said, it is not more than 10mn walking. So be patient and visit the shops.

You can also have the shuttle to Terminal 1. It is an interesting architecture and there are other shops and post office (tehre is also one in the "tunnel" between 2D and 2C). The shuttle is free. It is not, of course, some thing very-very interesting, but with jetlag, it might keep you awake !! In this road, by car, you see a wonderfull Concorde airliner that is welcoming the passengers. I not totally sure the shuttle has the say path.

Depending on when you will stay there, there are some restaurants as Mac Donald's (between 2E and 2 C) with small view on the tarmac and a good meet restaurant (between 2F and 2 D) called "Hypopotamus"

I'm not sure, because I don't remember exactly, but we travelled once from 2C. Ther are some shops after safety controles, but not a lot.

Watch out !! In CDG as in any places anywhere around the world, there are theifs and I guess they are particularly interested on people a little bit tired and not taking car enough about themselves, especially when you are tired and bored...
