FRANCE: SNCF Gares & Connexions and Air France partnered up to offer in-town baggage drop-off service to customers travelling to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport from Paris Gare du Nord railway station. 

An Air France check-in counter, located at Paris Gare du Nord next to platform 3 opposite the SNCF shop, will welcome customers for three months as from December 17, 2018 from 10am to 7pm Monday to Sunday.

Air France, Joon and HOP! customers travelling from Paris-Charles de Gaulle will be able to check in their baggage between 30 hours and 8 hours before their flight. The service costs €15 for the first baggage item and €10 for each subsequent baggage item. Customers' luggage will then be picked up and delivered to Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport.

This service is available to customers travelling in the Economy, Premium Economy and Business cabins for flights from Paris-Charles de Gaulle to all destinations, except the United States and Israel. All baggage, with a maximum weight of 32 kg and a maximum dimension of 158 cm, can be checked in.

For family trips, a member of the family with parental authority can drop off everyone's baggage. This person must be part of the travelling party and must show all the family's travel documents.

This service is an important part of SNCF Gares & Connexions' City Booster strategy, which aims to open up stations in the city and provide improved connections to other modes of transport. It also helps customers travelling to Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport by public transport by taking their baggage and simplifying their mobility.

The only other city in Europe offering this service is Vienna, where City Airport Train (CAT) passengers can drop-off their luggage in the CAT city railway station.
