Follow the designated sign and don’t give your luggage another thought

On arrival in Paris, the sign to follow depends on your transfer: integrated (one booking number, final destination indicated on your luggage label) or self-connecting (2 booking numbers, separate tickets).

Check the baggage label
  • If your destination airport is indicated (e.g. MIA), then your luggage is checked through to your final destination.
  • If the airport indicated is CDG or ORY, you need to collect your luggage in Paris and check it in again.
