According to a report in French newspaper Les Echos, the concession company of Caisse des Dépôts, Paris Airports, and SNCF Network will be able to access the first €295m tranche of the loan in 2019.

CDG Express services will operate at 15-minute intervals with a maximum journey time of 20 minutes between Paris Est and CDG Terminal 2. Trains will use the existing line between Paris Est and Villeparisis, before continuing northwards on a new 8km branch which will follow the alignment of TGV Interconnexion to the airport.

A one-way fare is expected to cost €24.
