I live in France. As part of a long multi-part flight, a friend of mine will be spending a night at the Charles de Gaulle Airport (in Paris, France), without a Schengen Visa (he has only the transit Visa). Therefore he cannot leave the "International zone" of the airport.
Is there any way I could meet with him in the Airport? Perhaps a VIP saloon, or a hotel in the international zone? I could even consider buying a cheap flight ticket (that I probably wouldn't take), just to be able to enter the airport, if that's the only option.
