ISO RECOMMENDATION: TRAIN 
After a long journey, you might want to reach your place as fast as possible. The high speed train reaching Lille within an hour is what you need! Book your train ticket on SNCF website as soon as your flight is confirmed.

ISO RECOMMENDATION: BUS
To avoid changing several times of mean of transportation with your - numerous - luggages, the bus is more convenient if you land at Orly airport. Even if it takes longer, it will take you straight to Lille. 

 

 

GOOD TO KNOW:

Book the train ticket from Paris Nord to Lille through SNCF website. Other tickets must be purchased on arrival (in the shuttle and at the RER station).

If you choose the train option from Paris Orly ariport, you have to take a shuttle and then a train (tickets to be bought at the station) before getting into the high speed train to Lille. It could be challenging with your luggages. 

Looking for challenges? Here is the itinerary to follow: Take a shuttle (ORLYVAL) towards Antony, get off at Antony station. Then take the RER B towards "Aéroport Charles de Gaulle 2 TGV", get off at Paris Nord. You made it, you can now sit in the high speed train and relax.. but not for too long as Lille is only 1 hour away.
