How to get to Le Bourget

 

We advise you not to go to the Paris-Le Bourget site by car. There are often traffic jams on the roads to the site and it is difficult to park there, meaning long delays can be expected.

 

We recommend that you take public transport. Extra trains and buses have been added for the Conference.
