CDG going home

How much time do we require before our flight to check in and go through security at CDG. We leave in 3 days and don,t want to miss our flight.

Yes, allow three hours. You'll go through US-type security if your flight is to the US. Better to have extra time hanging around than be rushing, raising blood pressure standing in lines, and possibly missing the flight.

Three hours is good and stress-free. You shouldn't need that much time, especially if you have status to get you through bag check faster, but there are so many unknown variables in flying. Make sure you know how to get to your terminal if using public transportation.

At least 3 hours, and Charles de Gaulle Airport is very large.

One hour from central Paris to CDG, so leave Paris 4 hours prior to your scheduled flight.

And make sure you know which terminal your airline uses so you can be dropped at the correct location. You should be able to find this on your airline website.
