The furthest airport from Paris city centre is Beauvais. If you’re arriving here and want to get downtown, you can hop on a bus or grab a taxi, but we suggest you take the TER 19 train (as it’s a great way to beat the Paris traffic); with tickets priced at just 14.50€ (£12.55), this 2-hour journey is the cheapest option available.
