Finally a Priority Pass Lounge for Air France Passengers in Paris!

Priority Pass has had several lounges at Paris Charles de Gaulle but the various concourses aren’t connected past security, and you can’t simply enter a concourse that’s not the one you’ll be departing from.

A gaping hole in the Priority Pass network in this major European hub has been lounge access for transatlantic passengers flying the airport’s main tenant Air France.

Priority Pass has offered access to the terminal 1 Star Alliance lounge and the terminal 2A Air Canada lounge. At some point, I’m not sure when, they added access to the terminal 2D Sheltair lounge accessible by Schengen passengers — those flying intra-Europe to and from countries that are part of the Schengen agreement and thus do not require passport control.

But what’s significant is the brand new addition to the Terminal 2E YotelAir‘s lounge. This is an airport hotel inside security. My US-bound flights have generally departed terminal 2E.

Airside – Non-Schengen departing and transit passengers only. After Passport Control, take the Shuttle train to Gate L. Follow signs for Instant Paris/YOTEL. Passengers traveling from Gates K and M can access the lounge via the Shuttle train but must allow time to return to the gates.

Terminal 2E’s K gates are in the main building. There are 2 satellite terminals — L and M — connected by train. This hotel/lounge is in satellite L.

It features “24/7 check in/out, a ‘Club Lounge’ with a TV zone, charging points and ‘The Snug’ which is a semi-private area to hold informal meetings with your travelling team or group of friends.”

Access includes a €10 credit per person for snacks, soft drinks, beer and wine.

Chase Sapphire Reserve, Citi Prestige, American Express Platinum (and Business Platinum), US Bank Altitude Reserve cardmembers and more receive bundled Priority Pass cards, generally upon request.

  1. Pretext of this article is simply plain wrong. There is no PP lounge in terminal 2A. I just waited there four hours last Sunday for AF7624 after arrival from Dallas.

    A better title would be “Some AF passengers…”

  2. I will be traveling thru CDG in 2 weeks and was considering YotelAir‘s lounge for my 5 hours connection. But most likely will go to Admirals Club, Terminal 2 (between 2A and 2C) instead .

    YotelAir‘s lounge “Access includes a €10 credit per person for snacks, soft drinks, beer and wine.” I wounder, what can you buy for €10?

    But Priority Pass is, also, dropping (or loosing) lounges like in Venice Italy. There was 2 of them… none left.

  3. 10 euros credit but total rubbish on offer. No hot food, just some snacks and chocolate. Not worthy of being a Priority Pass lounge.

    The free lounge outside was far better and offered comfortable chairs to boot.

  4. Terrible lounge ! Not worth the visit . Food In vending machine , you get a piece of paper and 10 euro of food and drink ! People are disappointed and shocked upon entering this place ! Never again

  5. Terminal 2e yotel lounge is a joke.

    $10 gets you access to their cold continental breakfast and a coffee robot.

    It’s basically just a hotel lobby monetizing.

    It’s also super out of the way. For those flying out of k or m it’s pretty inconvenient.

  6. Also “smart casual dress required at all times”

    …..riiiiight. They serve cold Kellogg’s flakes in boxes. I honestly wish this just wasn’t on priority pass. The $10 credit wasn’t worth the walk down the hall.
