Do I need to get out of International Zone at Charles de Gaulle airport when changing terminals from 1 to 2e?
I'm flying ULN-Beijing-Paris-Manchester. ULN-Paris is Air China then Paris-MCR is Flybe. I have 3.40 hours between the connecting flight at Charles De Gaulle airport. my problem is that Air China won't check my baggage to my final destination. I have to pick it up then re-check again. If I don't have to leave the international zone of the airport, then I won't need a transit visa. Do I have to leave the international zone and go through passport control to collect my bag and re-check it in again to board Flybe to Manchester? Also is 3:40 hours enough to do all of this when solo traveling with a 3-year-old child? If I decide to travel baggage free and with carry-on only, I don't need to leave transit zone to change terminals?
Than you very much for any advice!
