Charles de Gaulle International Airport has three terminals. Terminal 2 was built for Air France, but now hosts other airlines as well. The third terminal (T3, formerly T9) hosts charter and low cost airlines, such as easyJet.
so-called "terminal 2" is actually not really a terminal, but
rather a name applied to six distinct so-called "halls", which
each possess a letter (from A to G).
In other airports, such as JFK or LAX, these "halls" would simply be called terminals, so that Charles de Gaulle International Airport can be more properly described as having nine terminals altogether. When landing at or taking off from Charles de Gaulle International Airport, one should always know precisely which of the nine terminals/halls the plane lands or takes off from, as these can be located quite far apart from each other.
The nine terminals/halls are indicated distinctly on plane tickets: 1, 2A, 2B, 2C, 2D, 2E, 2F, 2G, 3.
Charles de Gaulle Airport is located 15 miles Northeast of Paris and has extensive road and rail links to the capital city and beyond. Getting to Paris from Charles de Gaulle is easy with RATP buses, taxis and limousines all operating from Paris CDG.
From CDG airport, it takes about 45 minutes to get to the centre of Paris, 10 minutes to Disneyland Paris and an hour to Brussels and Lille.
