Orly Airport is quite close to central Paris so taking a taxi can be the quickest route into the city. Prices will vary greatly, depending on where in the city you're going, and how much traffic there is. Be aware that there are surcharges of EUR 3 for more than three passengers and EUR 1 per piece of luggage after the first. Tipping is optional but customary.

Electronic boards

Slow and sometimes not updated

Listen to announcements! The screens at Orly are slow to be updated with boarding gate announcements or changes. We recommend listening carefully to any loudspeaker announcements because this issue has been known to cause flight delays and confusion among passengers.
