Paris Orly - OLY

Orly is Paris’s second airport and is only 7.5Km south of the city, somewhat overshadowed by the newer and larger Charles de Gaulle airport to the north.

As Paris Orly Airport is within the urban conurbation surrounding Paris, it is far easier to access by public transport from the city, than by road although the N7 runs right through the airport site.  From the south, Paris Orly Airport is signposted from the A6 and other major roads.
