|Free, unlimited WiFi is now|
available at CDG and ORY
And even if Paris isn't your end destination, you may well find yourself making connections through either one of Paris' two International airports - Paris Charles de Gaulle (also known as Roissy Charles de Gaulle) and Paris Orly.
The first of the two aforementioned airports, as well as being more recently built and larger of the two, Charles de Gaulle, is known by its International Air Transportation Association (IATA) abbreviation of CDG, or Charlie Delta Golf. Ranking 8th in worldwide passenger traffic, CDG had over 42 million passengers go through its terminals in 2013. It's the hub for Air France who initiated new security measures there for passengers traveling to the USA yesterday. In the Flash Info outlining the new security measures, Air France states:
All your electronic devices (telephones, tablets, laptops, e-books, game consoles, cameras, camcorders...), kept in cabin baggage, must be battery powered and functioning during your boarding at the airport of Roissy Charles de Gaulle.
In the case of control, if your device is discharged or defective, you will not be allowed to board on the flight with this equipment.
We also recommend that you keep your battery chargers in your cabin baggage. The charging of your equipment is possible in the boarding lounge. This must be done no later than the end of the boarding of your flight.

For both airports, their WiFi policies changed this month. It used to be that visitors to both airports had WiFi access, but it was time limited. Starting July 1st, both CDG and ORY are offering free, unlimited WiFi.
So if just passing through Paris this summer on your way somewhere else, or making Paris, the City of Lights, your end, dream destination, WiFi will be available for you while you're waiting for your ride, or your next flight.
