PARIS -- April 04, 2013
Transfer passengers in terminals 2E and 2F can now benefit from new direct,
simpler and quicker connection routes to their departure lounges.
"The new Paris-Charles de Gaulle connection routes strengthen the competitive

necessary to pass through the public area and undergo more security checks.
This system marks the final completion of the substantial transformation of
the Paris-Charles de Gaulle hub that began in 2012 with opening of Hall M last
June, followed by the location of flights operated by Air France and its
Skyteam partners in Terminals E and F in October.
