Regular readers know that I’m a fan of high-end meet and greet services at airports, while I don’t often pay for VIP assistance I think it’s a great option in certain circumstances, and I certainly love it when it’s included as part of my first class award redemptions (like the car to the plane from the Lufthansa first class terminal, and the escorts in Bangkok from Thai Airways).
Frequent Business Traveler says that there’s a new meet and greet service available at Paris Charles de Gaulle starting at 200 euros. That’s a bit more than American charges for their Five Star service, but this is Europe after all.
For a fee of €200, an Air France representative will provide an escort for departures, arrivals, and connections at the airport. Flying Blue members will receive 400 points each time the service is purchased.
If your flight arrives prior to 10 a.m., you can arrange for breakfast and access to a hotel room for two hours for €56 for a single room and €68 for a double. Airport transfers to Paris by motorcycle taxi, shuttle, or car start at €24 per person and luggage pickup and delivery is also available.
Unfortunately I can’t find details online of this service, I’ve found some third party services at de Gaulle however. Regardless, it will be occasionally a good addition because while pricey this is one of the more annoying airports to transit in my opinion and if I had older family members unfamiliar with international travel making connection I might be inclined to pay for the assistance.
