Is there any passport control in CDG for flights within EU?

I am a citizen of Ukraine and I'll be flying from Warsaw to Paris on the 1-st of March. It says my flight will be accepted in CDG AEROGARE 2 TERMINAL F. Will I have to go through immigration control or this terminal is used for intro-European flights? I will hold Polish Schenhen visa. Pls, help

There is no regular immigration control for passengers on flights between Schengen countries. You will still be asked to show your passport at check-in and security control before boarding the flight.

Yes, I heard about it, but since its a regular flight, what if there is any transit passenger aboard? Then this person can walk out to Schenhen area without any passport control as well? :) Sounds funny, don't you think? Can it happen?

My terminal is 2F while I heard only 2G is for Schengen area flights. This is why I worry :*(

Passengers travelling from outside Schengen are checked at their first point of entry to a Schengen-Country, in this case Warzaw. 2G is also used for inter-Schengen flights, but is not big enough for all of them.

The only control for Schengen flights is of your identity.

I notice that your profile gives your location as Dublin.

The Republic of Ireland, although in the European Union, is NOT a signatory to the Schengen Agreement. Full Passport Control therefore applies to all persons travelling between Ireland and any other country*. Maybe this is why you are confused.

* except the United Kingdom where special arrangements are in place for historical reasons.

...and only applies to Irish and UK citizens.

I haven't changed my location for ages )) Sorry, folk. I'm in Ukraine right now, Kiev. I really worry about my flight from Warsaw to Paris. Its sounds silly but what if there is transit passenger aboard.. then one who wasn't outside Schengen area. For example, the passenger who is flying to from some non-Schengen country to another non-schengen country via Warsaw and paris. How do they keep a track of such passengers. I found another flight operated by LOT airlines from Warsaw to Paris and it says it arrives to terminal 1 CDG which is for international flights only and which requires passport control. What to do? How can I check up this information?

You are worrying about nothing. All that matters is that your own documentation is in order (passport + Schengen visa).

Airports are designed to keep Schengen Area / non-Schengen Area / transit passengers separate, as far as necessary.

It does not matter who else is on your flight or what their immigration status is.

As has already been said, there is no problem.

As has already been said, there is no immigration control (passport check) at borders within the Schengen Area.
