Here's a small innovation that will be a big relief for overburdened parents traveling through sprawling Charles de Gaulle airport. Forty free strollers are now available at Terminal 2E, which is used by carriers such as Northwest, Delta, and Air France. (American Airlines flies into 2A.)
The strollers (poussettes) are located at two loan stations just beyond security and can be wheeled around the duty-free areas and right up to your boarding gate.
The France tourism office, ATOUT, reports that more than 200 people are taking advantage of the strollers daily. Stay tuned for the addition of strollers to other terminals at CDG and to Orly airport.
