Paris Orly Airport (French: Aéroport de Paris Orly) (IATA: ORY, ICAO: LFPO) is an airport located partially in Orly and partially in Villeneuve-le-Roi, south of Paris, France. It has flights to cities in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the Caribbean, and North America.

Prior to the construction of Charles de Gaulle International Airport, Orly was the main airport of Paris. Even with the shift of most internationl traffic to Charles de Gaulle International Airport, Orly remains the busiest French airport for domestic traffic and the second busiest French airport overall in terms of passenger boardings.

Orly Airport has two terminals: west and south. They are linked to Paris by freeways, Air France buses, RATP buses (called OrlyBus) and the Orlyval automatic metro service, which connects to the Antony (Paris RER) station. A tramway link is planned for the near future.

Getting there

Orly Airport is connected to the A6 autoroute.

Orly Airport is connected to the RER B train (going to Paris and other destinations) at Antony by the Orlyval automatic shuttle. Orlyval is free to use between the two Orly terminals (west and south).

Useful Tips

When driving in France, you will need a recognised full driving licence, the car's registration certificate (for cars registered in the UK, the V5C certificate), and proof of insurance. The insurance document is most commonly the "green card", though a standard insurance document from any EU country provides basic insurance for your vehicle (third party cover) throughout the Union, whether or not a green card is provided.
Minimum driving age is 18. Thus no-one under the age of 18 can drive a car in France, even if he or she holds a valid licence in another country.
Seatbelts must be worn at all times, by both adults and children, and both in the back and front seats.

Be aware that many of the roads in France are toll roads and it is useful to have change on you to navigate these roads.

Here are the normal speed limits for driving in France:
The normal speed limit on French motorways is 130 km/hr (just over 80 mph). - or 110 km/hr in rain.

The normal speed limit on main roads is 90 km/hr (outside built-up areas)
