It may be more convenient for you to fly to Paris's second airport, Orly. This airport is located in southern Paris and is nearer to Parc des Princes than Charles de Gaulle (Roissy) airport. As Orly airport is smaller, there are fewer international connections, but it is France's busiest airport for domestic flights.

There are several ways of travelling from Orly airport to the centre of Paris:
