Terminal 2 was originally built exclusively for Air France. Termainal expanded with several sections and nowadays is host to many European flights. Terminal 2 also has an RER and TGV station.
Terminal 3 hosts charter and low-cost airlines.
The CDGVAL is a light-rail shuttle that links the terminals, railway station and parking lots (with only 1 stop at terminal 2, that means long walks).
