In this article
1. Paris <=> Orly bus service
For professionals, business travelers, families as well as tourists, Bus Direct (line 1) can be a good option to reach Orly airport from the center of Paris. The shuttle service, open 7 days a week, picks you up and drops you off at several central locations in the capital: Trocadéro, Gare de Lyon, Gare Montparnasse, Porte Maillot and Etoile/Champs Élysées. At Orly, the drop-off and pick-up points are located at both terminals of the airport: Orly West (Exit D) and Orly South (Exit L).
You can book online in advance to guarantee a spot on the BusDirect website. It's a perfect service if you have a small budget and are leaving from the center of Paris, but be sure to allow for some extra time in case of traffic!
Travel time: about 1 hour
Price: starting from €24 round trip
2. RER B line
From the center of the capital as well as the Parisian suburbs, take the RER B from one of the 41 municipalities served by this line, or take the metro or bus to reach a stop on this line.
Allow about 30 to 40 minutes from the center of Paris to reach Antony RER station. Then, within the station, take the OrlyVal, the airport shuttle that connects Antony station to the various terminals of Orly airport in less than 10 minutes.
👉 Watch out for the price, an RER D ticket costs only about €3, but you must add the price of the OrlyVal which is not included in the ticket and represents an additional cost of €9.30. The RER is very advantageous if you leave early in the morning as it is open from 5am to 2am, and an RER to or from the airport runs every 10 minutes at most.
🕝 Travel time: 45 to 55 minutes
💰 Price: approx. €3 for RER B + €9.30 for OrlyVal one way, or €24.60 round trip
Simply take your personal car from your home, save time and make your life easier especially if you are loaded! However, make sure to have an application like Waze to avoid traffic jams and get the best route to Orly airport.
