RER B + Orlyval

Getting to Orly Airport (ORY) from Paris using the Orlyval train requires that you first get to Antony station along the RER B train line, then transferring to this dedicated rail line to Orly West (Ouest) and Orly South (Sud) terminals.

The RER B train line runs north south, bisecting Paris centrally, connecting both Paris airports Roissy-Charles de Gaulle to the north east and Paris-Orly directly south of the city.

Common starting stations for this trip would include Gare du Nord, Chatelet Les Halles, St-Michel Notre Dame, Luxembourg, and Denfert-Rochereau, all located in central Paris and all very accessible by multiple Metro, RER and bus lines. Note that the RER B line (blue line on maps) stops at all of these stations along its route southbound towards Antony.

The Orlyval train is ticketed specially requiring an additional fee on top of normal Metro/RER tickets and passes. Purchasing a single one way ticket to Orly airport from any central Paris station will be 14.50€. Travelers with a 5 zone Paris Visite card can use Orlyval without any additional charges. Passe Navigo users with at least 4 zones can use this pass to get to Antony station on RER B, then transfer at this station, purchasing a special ticket for Orlyval at Antony for 11.30€. (Yes, this is expensive for an 8 minute ride between Antony and Orly Sud).

The first train to Orly from Paris via RER B in direction Antony, Robinson, St-Remy-les-Chevreuse (direction for Orly airport), leaves Gare du Nord at 05:20, Chatelet Les Halles at 05:23, Saint-Michel Notre Dame at 05:25, Luxembourg at 05:27, arriving at Antony at 5:48. Just enough time to purchase tickets for Orlyval at Antony station, unless you’re using the Paris Visite card.

The Orlyval train platform is located at the north end of the Antony station. Thus, when you arrive at Antony via the RER B, walk towards the rear of the train.
