Question about RG and Taxis

My flight is arriving at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris 13.15 local time and the women's final is going to start at 15.00 local time. Is there a possibility to get to the stadium in time with taxi?

All the best to Justine Henin-Hardenne!!

You're cutting it close though, as you will need to stand in line to get in etc.

I would book an earlier flight.

Re: Question about RG and Taxis

getting a taxi can sometimes be a nightmare at CDG airport. In worst cases, it can take 30 - 45 minutes, depending on availabilities, queue...

On another hand, it should take 'only' one hour by mass transport (RER B from "Charles de Gaulle 1" station to "Saint-Michel Notre-Dame" station. Then subway line 10 from "Saint-Michel Notre-Dame" station to "Porte d'Auteuil station).

Other advantage : the time it will take will not depend on street traffic.

Other point to consider is whether you have to wait for some luggage to pick up or will travel light with only some hand luggage. Here again, waiting for your luggage to arrive can cause some serious delay.

Thank you for the information.

Maybe I should think about the public transport then...

All the best to Justine Henin-Hardenne!!
