Arriving at Paris Orly

Paris Orly Airport is in the communes of Orly and Villeneuve-le-Roi in the south of Paris, about eight miles (13km) from the city centre. The airport is well connected to the city and there are numerous options when it comes to getting into town. The quickest of these is to get the train. The Orlyval light railway connects the airport to the RER B train line via Antony train station, from where it’s easy to transfer to a train into the centre of the city. The airport also connects to the RER C line, another of the city’s main train lines, with a shuttle from both Orly terminals to to Pont de Rungis – Aéroport d'Orly station, where it’s easy to catch an onward train.

It’s also easy to catch a bus from the airport into the city centre. Most conveniently, the line 1 runs between the airport and several sites in central Paris, including the Eiffel Tower and Champs-Elysées. The Orlybus runs between the airport and Denfert-Rochereau, a station in the Montparnasse district towards the centre of town.

Taxis are another convenient form on onward transport from the airport; they assemble outside exits L and B. If you’d rather drive yourself, several car rental firms have outlets at arrivals.
