From the UK, the super-fast Eurostar Express offers a daily passenger service from London (St-Pancras station) to Paris (Gare du Nord) and Brussels via the Channel Tunnel – regarded as one of the great engineering feats of the 20th Century. The 50km journey takes 2 hours 15 minutes (actual time spent in the Chunnel is 19 minutes), with 17 services per day and 20 on Fridays.
Ferry and hovercraft services also operate across the English Channel with connecting trains linking the London to Paris route at Dover and Folkstone in England to Calais and Boulogne in France.
From Australia: The most convenient flights to Paris (Charles De Gaulle) are via Bangkok on Thai Airways and via Dubai on Emirates. In addition, both Qantas and Air France offer daily connecting flights to Paris via Hong Kong and Singapore; and Malaysian Air via Kuala Lumpur.
From New Zealand: The most convenient flights to Paris (Charles De Gaulle) are via Bangkok on Thai Airways; via Hong Kong on Cathay Pacific or via Tokyo on Air New Zealand and Air France.
From the UK: The Eurostar Express train is the most convenient – just over two hours from central London to the centre of Paris. Both British Airways and Air France offer daily flights.
From the USA: The most convenient flights from New York are on American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and Air France; Air France flies daily from Los Angeles.
A free shuttle bus links the main terminals of both airports to the local train station for travel to and from the centre of Paris, and beyond.
The Paris Airport Shuttle is the best option for travelling to or from Charles de Gaulle or Orly airports. Both shuttles require a one-day advance reservation.
Taxis, buses, trams and hire cars are all available; and a fleet of glass-covered boats ply the Seine offering a hop-on hop-off service along the river.
