CDG Express confirmed
The CDG Express shuttle was definitively confirmed by the Senate on 20 December following agreement by the National Assembly a day earlier. This rail link will provide a direct connection from the Gare de l’Est to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (terminal 2) in 20 minutes with trains leaving every 15 minutes.
While agreement may not be unanimous, particularly with a €24 travel cost, it has been highlighted that current services from Charles de Gaulle Aiport fall short of passenger and tourist expectations of an international airport. A monthly pass at preferential rates may be made available to airport staff.
