Hi everybody,

needing to go for personal reasons to Nice on Sunday, September 13th, and needing to be back to school in Lille the day after before 9 am, I am looking for different options :

- Go and Turn CDG-NCE : 120€ + TGV CDG-LIL (too late to be back on time to school)
- GO ORY-NCE and turn NCE-LIL with Easyjet for 120€ (on time for school)

The routing will be : 


  • EJU4059 - Economique - Paris → Nice - Airbus A320 You are here
  • EJU1679 - Economique - Nice → Lille - Airbus A320 Coming soon

We arrived one hour before the take-off at Orly airport
With the COVID-19 crisis, all flights operated by Easyjet check in at Orly 3

A first for me, a chance to discover this new airport hall.

However, the discovery won't be total. After PIF and dutyfree, we will turn to the toilets and then cross over the Hall 3 to join U2 gates at Orly 2. 

The FIDS, full Easyjet :

Boarding will start 45 min before the theorical departure time
An announce will be me date to remind that boarding will be refused to anybody not caring a surgical mask.
