Paris Orly Airport is an international airport and one of two airports serving the capital of France, Paris, the other one is the larger Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. The airport is located about 15 km south of the city center and is with 30 million passengers a year the second busiest airport in France. Before the construction of Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG), Orly Airport was the main airport for Paris and although most international traffic has been transferred to CDG, Orly has more domestic flights.
Paris Orly has two terminals the South and West Terminals (Terminal Sud and Terminal Ouest). Both are roughly the same size. There is no logic behind the airline assignment so you would need to check your ticket carefully to which terminal you need to go. Here are the more popular airlines: Air France, BA, Aeroflot and EasyJet are in Terminal Sud. Transavia, Icelandic, Tui and Norwegian Air shuttle are in Terminal Ouest. Both terminals are connected by the free Orlyval automatic shuttle train.
Orly airport is located about 15 km south of Paris city center.
The free Orlyval shuttle train also connects both terminals to Antony station which is served by the RER B line which can take you to several metro stations in the center and to Charles de Gaulle Airport to the north of Paris. Tickets, including the Orlyval, costs €10.75 to central Paris.
A cheaper option is by bus. OrlyBus will take you in 30 minutes and for € 8.00 to the city center. Buses depart every 10 minutes and tickets can be bought at Platform 4. Another even cheaper option is bus line 183 which departs in front of the Terminal Sud and will bring you for 2 euros and in 50 minutes to Porte de Choisy station.
