Getting into Paris

Plenty of transport options

There are many ways to travel between Orly airport and the city of Paris. If you’re looking to get there quickly and cheaply, we suggest taking the train.

Trains leave every four to seven minutes from 06:00-23:00 and journey time is around 40 minutes (six minutes to Antony).

Prices will vary greatly, depending on where in the city you're going, and how much traffic there is. Be aware that there are surcharges of EUR 3 for more than three passengers and EUR 1 per piece of luggage after the first. Tipping is optional but not customary. From ORY airport, the taxi fare is set to EUR 35 if you're travelling to the right bank of the Seine river and EUR 30 to left bank of Seine river.

Free water

No need to buy bottled water

If you’re carrying a refillable bottle we suggest heading to the Tourist Information counter in the South terminal. There is a free water dispenser that alleviates the need to buy overpriced bottled water. It’s also better for the environment!

Electronic boards

Slow and sometimes not updated

Listen to announcements! The screens at Orly are slow to be updated with boarding gate announcements or changes. We recommend listening carefully to any loudspeaker announcements because this issue has been known to cause flight delays and confusion among passengers.

Tip: Sign in with FLIO and add your flight to 'My flights' and enable notifications to stay up to date.
