Paris-Orly airport expansion, which is expected to be an eco-friendly development, is hoped to facilitate increased passenger numbers to allow seamless travel.
Groupe ADP is opening a new 6,000m2 building in Hall 1 of the West Terminal of Paris-Orly Airport.
This expansion, equipped with four new pier-served stands for medium-haul aircraft, will increase the terminal’s aircraft capacity.
The new infrastructure, made necessary by the regular increase in number of passengers at Paris-Orly, will improve service by increasing the size of the boarding and alighting areas, and will increase capacity in Hall 1, from 4.8 to 5.5 million passengers per year.
Facilities and services
To meet passengers’ needs and expectations, three new stores have been opened: a Relay boutique, a duty-free zone selling alcohol, tobacco, perfume and lifestyle products, as well as a Paul restaurant.
In addition, a range of services are available in the boarding lounge: kids’ play areas, PlayStation games, phone-charging stations, a public piano, and an outdoor smoking terrace. This hall is intended for passengers flying to Schengen destinations on the following airlines: HOP! Air France, Air France, Air Malta, Alitalia, Iberia, TAP and Vueling.
