My flight from Vienna to Biarritz arrived at Charles de Gaulle. My connecting flight to Biarritz, however, departed from Orly. Therefore, I had to take the bus.

Orly Airport



After about one hour and fifteen minutes, I arrived at Orly Ouest. After my baggage was unloaded from the bus, I walked to the entrance of hall 3.

As I had to wait some time and the airport did not have enough seats to accommodate all waiting passengers, I went to a bakery and settled down there. About two hours prior to departure, the check-in opened and, as there was no waiting line yet, I checked in my luggage.

Directly afterwards I passed security control and entered the terminal. It was very crowded, with a lot of passengers waiting for their flights and only had two small shops.
