Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (French: Aéroport de Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle, IATA: CDG, ICAO: LFPG), also known as Roissy Airport (name of the local district), is the largest international airport in France. It is named after Charles de Gaulle (1890–1970), leader of the Free French Forces during the Second World War, founder of the French Fifth Republic and President of France from 1959 to 1969. Charles de Gaulle Airport is located within portions of several communes 25 km (16 mi) to the northeast of Paris. Charles de Gaulle Airport serves as the principal hub for Air France as well as a European hub for fellow SkyTeam alliance partner Delta Air Lines. Additionally, the airport serves as a focus city for low-cost carriers Vueling and Norwegian Air Shuttle. In 2016, the airport handled 65,933,145 passengers and 472,950 aircraft movements, thus making it the world's tenth-busiest airport, Europe's second-busiest airport (after London Heathrow) in terms of passenger numbers. It is also the world's tenth-busiest and Europe's busiest airport (ahead of London Heathrow) in aircraft movements. In terms of cargo traffic, the airport is the twelfth-busiest in the world and the second-busiest in Europe (after Frankfurt Airport), handling 2,150,950 metric tonnes of cargo in 2012. The incumbent director of the airport, Franck Goldnadel, was appointed to his position on 1 March 2011.

    Huge Airport with very well maintained infrastructure. Can be accessed by trains, cars, TGV. Good connections to Paris city center. The indications are vast and helpful, making it easy to walk around. Inside the terminals, the conditions can be improved: more electrical chargers for devices, more eating options etc. If you are a fan of "heavy" planes, at the end of some terminals, you can see the runways and watch the landings and departures.

    Great airport with easy accessible local trains in and out of the Airport at about 10€ per ticket. The Police is also very helpful and at the area 2F if you need them. Local information desks everywhere with friendly and helpful staff.

    Great infrastructure - well maintained, although hearing French and ONLY French from the personnel throughout the airport (and in Paris in general) it's a big disappointment for a massive international airport - city in Paris. Please adapt with the rest of the world, for your own sake! BR

    I'm French and yet this airport is the only one in the world I have ever managed to get lost in. Indication and signs are so poorly implemented. I'm also not too fond of the quality of the service. Paris is such a great place. Our visitors deserve better!

    The city was great, I was leaving Paris with a nostalgic feeling until I arrived at the airport to fly to Spain, terminal 2. The airport workers and AirFrance were not helpful. Every attendant wanted to charge for a carry on. Which is fine, but why does everyone want to charge a fee when they themselves do not let you proceed to the next stop with out paying. Even when they check their own system, it takes 10 minutes to verify a payment was made. Do they even receive training on how to read a receipt or their own system? Paris this will not prevent me from visiting you again. I'll just ride the train instead.
