The furthest airport from the French capital takes its name from the small city in which it is situated: Beauvais. It is in the north of Paris, 84 kilometres away from the city centre which normally takes between 60 and 75 minutes depending on the traffic. It is one of the most efficient airports in France. This airport is mainly used for low cost budget airlines such as Ryanair and WizzAir. Passengers landing here will transit through the airport’s two terminals. There are also duty-free shops, restaurants, a postal service, a nursery, currency exchanges and facilities and services for disabled travellers. Regarding the links to Paris there is a bus which transports passengers to specific destinations such as Porte Maillot, obliging the tourist to change buses.
Calculating correctly, if travelling in a group of a minimum of three, then a taxi is a more economic transport method if you consider the cost of each bus ticket to get from Beauvais to Paris, the cost of the local bus in Porte Maillot to the hotel and the transportation of luggage without mentioning the potential stress caused by the idea of getting lost. The comfort of a private transport is evident, you will reach your hotel destination directly without needing to change buses or trains in a city where you do not know the streets and the main places.
You can find below the distances and journey times for travelling from the airport to the main tourist attractions in Paris and the surrounding area:
- Beauvais Airport – the Eiffel Tower: the fastest route with the least traffic means travelling around 95 kilometres which would take around 1 and a half hours via the A16 as opposed to the A1 motorway with a distance of 113 kilometres taking 1 hour and 40 minutes;
- Beauvais Airport - Disneyland Paris: the best option is a 125 kilometres journey which can be done in an hour and 35 minutes if you choose the A16 which will enable you to reach your destination more quickly;

In all cases any transfer service to or from the airport will always be booked some time in advance, above all in Beauvais where, depending on the time, there may not be vehicles available for your transfer.
