How to get here from Paris by plane
Most guests will arrive in France at CDG and need to transfer to Paris Orly International Airport (Orly Airport) for their inland flights to Brive.
There are several ways to get from CDG to Orly Airport. One is by train (which will also work if you stay a few days in Paris before heading south), which runs every 15 minutes from 5h00 to 23h45 from terminal 2. You find the train by following the 'Paris by train' signs with the 'RER' 'B' logos. The ticket you buy for the RER B train from CDG to Paris covers your transfer to Metro lines. Keep your ticket to use in the turnstiles as needed to make transfers. To transfer to Orly Airport, stay on the train till Antony station and change there to the Orly Airport line.
Alternatively, take an 'Air France Bus' to Orly . You can buy a ticket at the machine or from the driver. The journey takes a minimum of 45 mins (be aware traffic can be an issue especially during the rush hours) + 0.5 hour waiting on the platform. To avoid missing your connecting flight, we advise you to spare at least 3.5 – 4 hours in between two flights.
