The French parliament has approved plans for an express train between central Paris and France’s largest airport, with investment in the new line estimated at roughly €1.69bil (RM7.9bil).
While the “Charles De Gaulle Express” train line – which will cut travel time to and from Charles de Gaulle Airport to just 20 minutes – will likely come as a welcome relief for both local and international travellers, they will have to be patient for now, as completion is scheduled for the year 2023.
SNCF, France’s national state-owned railway company, and Aeroports de Paris, the country’s airport authority, will reportedly oversee construction, with the line planned to run from Paris’s Gare de l’Est, which is in the 10th arrondissement, to Charles de Gaulle airport (via CNT ).
Tickets are expected to be priced around €24 (RM112) one-way. – AFP Relaxnews
