Connection time for Orly airport

Connection time for Orly airport

Hello - I have booked tickets from NY to Bordeaux with a connection in Orly in October through one of the big 3rd party travel sites. I have never flown into Orly (only CDG) and I am concerned about having enough time to make my flight to Bordeaux. My flight from NY arrives at 9am and the flight to Bordeaux leaves at 10:30am. In many airports this would not be sufficient connection time - can someone advise on Orly? Both flights are with Air France and I hope to have only carry-on luggage. I can cancel the flight if I do so before the end of the day today (sorry for the short notice!) Thank you so much for any help!

Is the travel on one ticket for both flights, or has the online agency cobbled together two flights on separate tickets?

hi - I don't really know - it is all with Air France, so I think it is likely all one ticket. Would that make a difference?

If the travel is on one ticket, you can stay airside and you would have enough time. If it is on two tickets, you would have to go landside and go back through Security, and you probably would not have enough time.

Thank you so much - I will try to find out how it is ticketed. The 3rd party is Expedia, if that makes any difference. They are not known for speedy replies to emails, but I will see if they can give me the ticketing details. Thank you for your help!
