CDG Express’ incomes
Once built, this line that will provide a 20-minute connection from Paris to Charles de Gaulle Airport, will have two revenue streams. Firstly, there is a toll charge payable by the line operator (appointed in 2018) to run its trains (with a variable proportion based on the number of passengers). The second will be a tax levied on all ticket sales for journeys starting or ending at Charles de Gaulle Airport (excluding interchanges). Confirmed in December, this tax will only be applicable from April 2024 and not from 2017 as had previously been indicated; the level (set by ministerial decree) will also be capped at €1.40.
