Passengers travelling between Paris Charles de Gaulle airport and the centre of the city will no longer have to rely on the city’s public transport system or pricey taxi services, with a new low-cost shuttle service set to launch later this spring.

Budget airport shuttle company easyBus has announced a new service between Charles de Gaulle (CDG) airport and Paris’s city centre.

The service is set to launch on May 15th, with the first 26,000 tickets priced at just €2.

Travellers will be available to purchase the tickets online from the easyBus website from March 30th.

The buses will make around 80 journeys a day, with the first bus of the day scheduled to depart from Palais Royal/Louvre at 5:45 am and the last bus set to leave from Terminal 2 of the airport at 1am.

The news will no doubt come as a relief for many travellers caught up in the strikes that regularly hit the city’s RER service, which links to the airport.

This will be the budget bus company’s first service in continental Europe and will be launched in partnership with SARL Chamexpress.

Stelios Haji-Ioannou, president of the “easy” brand that also includes the budget airline EasyJet, said the service would encourage more tourism to the city.

“Paris is often considered as an expensive city to visit. By providing airport transfers of excellent value throughout the year, easyBus will help its travellers to go the extra mile with their euros – which means more chances to benefit from what this big city has to offer.

“I’m convinced that we can make a big impact on Paris as a popular tourist destination.”
