    which one is correct?

    Which one is correct?

    1/ Next week I will see you at the airport when you arrive
    2/ Next week I will see you at the airport when you will arrive

    My choice is the first one, but I saw some others chose the second one sometime.
    If neither of those are correct, please give me a new one.

    Thanks so much.

    Re: which one is correct?

    Only the first sentence is correct.

    Present tenses are used instaed of will plus inf. to refer to the future in subordinate clauses after when, after, until, before, as soon as, etc.
    And do not forget the periods at the end of the sentences

    Thank you. I have always used the first one but recently I have heard someone used the second one so I became unsure.
