train from CDG airport to Avignon on Easter Sunday

I will be Avignon for Easter and have friends arriving from the US to Paris CDG on Easter Sunday and then catching the train to Avignon. Will the train schedule from CDG to Avignon be limited due to the holiday ? Those schedules are not yet posted so am hoping someone can answer before my friends book their airline tickets.

Thanks in advance

The iDTGV schedules are already posted and tickets are now available from 35€. All iDTGV trains depart Paris from Gare de Lyon. I would allow no less than 4 hours between a Gare de Lyon departure and a CDG arrival. The Air France bus #4 connects CDG with Gare de Lyon, tickets are 17.50€.

Trains will be running, but to a schedule that is likely to be much the same as a normal Sunday schedule.

It will be much more convenient to take a TGV from the airport rather than an iDTGV from Gare de Lyon, and in any case there are problems with SNCF accepting foreign cards for iDTGV tickets.

Tickets for Easter Sunday should be available from 20 January.

If you visit voyages-sncf.com the full timetables for Easter Sunday are already posted (click on Horaires) although ticket sales will not start until 3 months prior (except for IdTGV, which can be hard to access from outside France).

As sydneynick says, it will be much easier to catch a TGV from CDG airport station than to trek into central Paris and catch one there. There are six direct trains from CDG to Avignon on the Sunday, as well as a few more that only require a simple change across a platform at a smaller station.
