The airport is also to the south of Paris, while many of the other airports of the Ille-de-France region are to the north of the city.

Departing passengers can arrive by train at the Gare d’Antony from various central train stations, including the Gare du Nord, Chatelet Les Halles, St-Michel Notre Dame, Luxembourg and Denfert-Rochereau. Once arriving at Antony, passengers will need to take the Orlyval, which is the airport’s automatic light rail system, to the terminal of their departure. By train is one of the quickest and easiest ways to reach the airport.

Passengers can also reach the airport by road, either in their own vehicle, by bus or by taxi. The Orlybus is a popular way to travel, from the Denfert-Rochereau station, and many other bus lines are available from various other parts of Paris. Air France also offers two lines to Orly, one of which travels from the larger Charles de Gaulle Airport. Taxis are available from all areas of the city and surrounding communes. By car, the most common route to follow to the airport is on the A6 from Paris, which then branches off into the A106, the access road of the airport. The National Route 7, travelling past Villejuif and Chevilly-Larue is another good way to travel. The N7 and the A6 also head further south, and provide access from areas such as Saintry-sur-Seine, Mennecy, Corbeil-Essonnes, Évry and Ris-Orangis.

Paris Orly Airport departures are handled from both of the terminal buildings of the airport, known as the Orly-South Terminal and the Orly-West Terminal. They are also linked by the Orlyval train system. Although the requirements of each airline company may differ, passengers on domestic flights should arrive at the airport at least an hour before departure, while passengers on international flights will need to get to the airport at least two to three hours before their departure. The check-in process can be completed at the check-in desks, or at the self-service check-in terminals, if the airline company concerned allows it. A variety of remote check-in options may also be available, such as over the Internet or from a mobile phone.

A passenger’s luggage should not have any old travel tags on it, and should be clearly marked with your name and address, inside and out. It can also help to attach something distinctive to your luggage items, such as a ribbon or sticker, so that you can easily recognise it upon your arrival. Avoid carrying valuables in your checked luggage, pack fragile items very carefully and carry all medicines and prescriptions with you, rather than in hold luggage. At the airport, for safety reasons, never accept any piece of luggage from a stranger, and never carry anything on board the aircraft for someone you don’t know. Always keep a watchful eye on your own luggage as well, never leaving it unattended. At Paris Orly Airport, two luggage services are available, Bagages du monde and Fly Safe Bag. These services allow you to wrap your baggage items in a protective plastic film, which helps prevent damage or deterioration of your belongings.

Both terminal buildings have facilities for the assistance of parents with young children, which include nappy changing stations and play areas. There are also free playstation games for older children. The airport is accessible to disabled passengers, with adapted toilet facilities, elevators and moving walkways, and pavement ramps, and further assistance can be requested from the airline companies. Additional facilities for departing passengers include multimedia terminals, post offices, HSBC banks, cash dispensers, pharmacies, multi-faith prayer areas and the free Aéroports de Paris Magazine found in all departure lounges. The airport also features duty-free stores, a large number of other shopping outlets, and many fine bars and restaurants, as well as fast food outlets.
