Paris CDG VIP Fast Track "La Conciergerie" Review


Although the general public may not be aware of it, Paris airports offer personalized services to assist premium customers. As with all Premium services, "La Conciergerie" comes with different levels of service: VIP Fast Track, VIP Premium & VIP Ultimate.

I recently had the chance to try their VIP Fast-Track Departure service and must say I was quite impressed and happy with it.

Upon our arrival at CDG, I called the Concierge number that had been texted to me while I was on my way to the airport. A few minutes later, our concierge showed up at the entrance of the 2E terminal. She accompanied us to the Air France First Class checkin counter (we were flying Economy, I am a Flying Blue Platinum member) and handed our passports & frequent flyer cards directly to the checkin agent. Two minutes later, we were already on our way to security through shortcuts that are not accessible to the general public and that are faster than the regular fast-track lanes labeled "Acces No1" for premium passengers.





At the "Acces No1"security check, we actually bypassed the line (which was kind of weird in a way as I never imagined you could bypass the premium waiting line for security check) but of course went through the hassle of clearing security like everybody else.

After that, we were on our way to passport control which we, once again, cleared in less than two minutes as our concierge escorted us directly to the front of the line.

All in all, after about ten minutes, we arrived at the Air France CDG 2E lounge at which point our concierge informed us that she would call us back in time for boarding to escort us to the plane.


After enjoying the lounge (pictured above) for an hour (which was only possible due to my Flying Blue Platinum status not the Fast-Track service in itself), I did receive the call and there was an announcement in the lounge informing us that someone was waiting for us. We met our concierge at the lounge entrance and were escorted to the gate where we arrived five minutes later.

As with most short-haul Air France flights, there never is a dedicated boarding lane for Elite passengers but our concierge "created" one for us allowing us, once again, to bypass any waiting before boarding the plane.

All in all, I must say this was quite an impressive experience and I don't see how it could have been any easier or faster for us.

If there is a possibility of fast track service then it should also be available to the general public, it might help reduce congestion at the airport. meet and greet gatwick
