Since the outbreak of the Coronavirus COVID-19, Paris Aéroport staff is on duty to welcome, inform and give orientation to all our valued customers. Due to the official announcement of different countries to restrain the access of their territory, airlines must adapt their flight schedule accordingly. Some states have decided to limit the entry of their territory to EU citizens.
Wearing a mask is compulsory in airports and planes as of 11 May 2020.
CAUTION! By local administrative decision, and until July 10th 2020, only passengers, as well as people accompanying children traveling alone or under 18, people accompanying passengers with disabilities or vulnerable people, can access the terminals of Paris-CDG Airport.
At Paris-Charles de Gaulle, some shops are closed. Nevertheless, Relay shops, mini-markets, pharmacies and shops selling only take-away food as well as some shops are accessible.
Paris-Orly Airport is temporarily closed until June 26th. (All flights due to be operated to/from Paris-Orly are reassigned at Paris-CDG. If you were supposed to travel to/from Paris-Orly from April 1st, please contact your airline to check flight information.)
Following measures taken by the French Government, long-distance travel will only be possible for compelling personal or professional reasons, until at least 15 June 2020. As a consequence:
Borders at the entrance of the Schengen area remain closed. All travels between non-European countries and the European Union are suspended until further notice. French citizens currently abroad who wish to return home can go back to their country: we invite you to contact your Embassy and/or Consulate as well as your airline in order to organize your trip from abroad.
French borders with the countries of the European Area (European Union, Schengen Area, and the United Kingdom) are extended until at least 15 June and you will have to justify your trip with a compelling reason:
- Each person wishing to travel abroad must hold a document certifying on honor the reason for his or her travel. This certificate can be downloaded from the French Ministry of Interior website or can be written on plain paper. Violation of the travel bans is punishable by a fine of EUR 135.

- Given the alignment of health measures within the European Union, quarantine measures for any French or foreign person entering the territory will not be applied within the European Area, except Overseas.
