Paris Orly opens new Orly 3 building
Last week, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe and Elisabeth Borne, France's Minister for Ecological Transition in charge of Transport, officially opened the new Orly 3 building at Paris Orly Airport (ORY). The new building transformed Paris Orly airport into a single terminal called "Paris Orly 1-2-3-4." This is the first step in the "All change at Paris-Orly" transformation project led by Paris Aéroports.
Air France will mainly operate long-haul flights from the new Orly 3 building, which covers 80,000 square meters across three levels. (Aside from a few short-haul Air France flights, other flights, including La Navette services, will continue to operate from Orly 1.) The new infrastructure provides passengers with more comfortable, spacious and high-quality conditions for check-in, boarding and arrival.
According to an April 18 statement from Air France, the airport is organized around four Departure and Arrival areas, the single-terminal Paris Orly 1-2-3-4 provides clearer and faster customer channels. Whether passengers are departing, have a connection, or are arriving at Paris-Orly, their itinerary is indicated at each stage on the many information panels and signs (and on their boarding pass for passengers departing from the airport). To find their check-in area, pick up your baggage or find a connecting flight, guests simply need to follow the signs.
