Paris Orly Airport

General information

The second busiest airport in France is located on the outskirts of Paris and and consists of one terminal called Orly 1-2-3-4. Paris Orly Airport is used for most domestic flights of Air France. Besides, the airport is a hub for Air Caraïbes, Transavia France, easyJet and Vueling.

The capital of France has three airports, from large to small: Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, Paris Orly Airport and Paris Beauvais Airport.

TIP: It is best to buy tickets for the Louvre Museum and Disneyland Paris some time in advance (one-day ticket / multi-day ticket).


Where is Paris Orly Airport situated?

Paris Orly Airport is situated south of the city centre. The airport is connected to Autoroute A106 and because of that easy to reach by car.

How many terminals does Paris Orly Airport have?

After renovation and expansion work, the airport changed the names of its terminals in the spring of 2019. Orly Ouest and Orly Sud are interconnected now and named differently, namely Orly 1-2-3-4. As a result, Paris Orly Airport has only one terminal. Orly Ouest is Orly 1 and Orly 2, Orly Sud is Orly 3 and Orly 4.

Walking between two parts of the airport takes 5 minutes, thus by foot it is 15 minutes between Orly 1 and Orly 4. The automatic shuttle train Orlyval takes travellers from Orly 1-2-3 station to Orly 4 station within a minute and vice versa and is therefore faster. Orly 3, the newest part of Paris Orly Airport, is closest to Orly 4 station.

Bag security check, the guy with ild short gray hair, around 185-190cm tall, said after asking us if we speak english that he is not obliged to speak in english to us, while speaking perfectly fine english himself. How are you to communiacte on the most international airport if not in english? We are from other european country , and we all know english as a second one, knowing jow to speak french in 4 days is impossible, very arrogant to everyone passing by, that means no ill.

I cannot understand how can staff be so arrogant and passive aggressive to tourists and passing by people, some know how to speak english better than the others but hard to find. What is this wierd culture in frence?

Security staff and Trasavia ground staff tend arrogant, ignorant and stupid. I have traveled to many airports in Europe & US but I have never met such poorly trained, ignorant, aggressive staff. Orly must be a very boring place to work or it must be hard to get competent staff. Avoid Orly if possible.

Terrible signage. Unclear whether Areas 1 2 3 4 have separate ABCD boarding areas. Also check in area for #2 hidden behind stairs. System is in no way intuitive.

Staff at the screening area were rude and unhelpful.

Having travelled a lot this was by far the poorest airport signage I’ve ever experienced.
