Flights To Paris, Air Travel to France
Connections on a Paris Flight must be realistic. Leave enough time to go through customs if the flight is not direct.
To pass through an international terminal customs, immigration, and security could require three hours.
If you are traveling to Paris from the East Coast or the West Coast of the United States, a good bet is to fly into New York City or other east coast city and then board a non-stop flight to Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris where you will go through customs and immigration.
That way you will have no anxiety about making a connection after the customs/immigration check.
Otherwise you might go through Ireland's Shannon or London's Heathrow where you will go through customs and immigration and could be delayed for your flight to Paris.
