After arriving at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) from Minneapolis–Saint Paul International Airport (MSP) on our Delta Air Lines flight (review here), we had some time before our connection to Vincenzo Bellini Catania Airport (CTA). We had to pass through security, immigration, take a train, walk several long corridors, and then take a bus to get to Terminal 2G. The terminal was recently built and includes an Air France lounge. We stopped by before our flight.
Access is granted to passengers flying in Business Class or La Première on Air France, Flying Blue Gold or Platinum members, SkyTeam premium cabin passengers, and SkyTeam Elite Plus passengers. A same-day boarding pass is required to enter the Air France Lounge.
Anthony’s Take: This lounge is new and it’s a great stop on the way to a connecting flight. There is a decent buffet, Wi-Fi, restrooms, a single shower, and plenty of space to relax or work. Once you take the various forms of transport and complete the long walk, you’ll need a break before boarding.
After entering, there are several kiosks to check guest credentials to the left. Agents were seated to the right with an additional one helping guests use the kiosks.
A self-serve bar is found near the buffet. It included several wines, champagnes, soft drinks, and various liquors.
Flavored water was available on the counter.
There was also a sparkling water dispenser.
A coffee machine was nearby.
Lunch/dinner was being served during my visit. The buffet has various quiches, croque monsieur, focaccia, breads, vegetables, meats, cheeses, snacks, and desserts.
Croque Monsieur and focaccia
Cheeses and yogurt
Seating & Decor
There is not much in terms of design in this lounge, but there is lots of seating throughout including tables near the buffet.
More seating is to the right of the buffet and near the entrance.
There is a dedicated area for La Première passengers.
This lounge offers free Wi-Fi, restrooms, a shower, magazines, and the food and beverages mentioned above.
After you pass the entry, there are restrooms and a single shower to the far left.
There are several sinks outside the shower, but it was occupied the entire time I was there. I was unable to get a picture of the actual shower.
This lounge was a good spot to relax before our connecting flight. It offers a nice selection to eat and drink. It wasn’t too crowded and was a welcome respite after how long it took us to get there.
