Aéroports de Paris has a clear competitive edge on the airside, with two runway pairs at Paris-Charles de Gaulle and three runways at Paris-Orly. However, we had to face a persistent problem of airport-terminal capacity. To address this issue of terminal saturation, we invested nearly €3 billion, between 2006 and 2010, to build The Galerie Parisienne, the new 2E boarding lounge and the regional terminal 2G. In 2008 and 2009, Aéroports de Paris thus increased the capacity of its airport terminals by approximately 25 million passengers (i.e. the equivalent of Paris-Orly’s capacity).
Future satellite 4 at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport: Aéroports de Paris invests in the development of connecting traffic and service quality

Due to enter service in the third quarter of 2012, the new departures satellite at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport will join terminals 2E, 2F and 2G on the eastern side of the airport to complete the SkyTeam Hub.“In today's economic environment, it is more important than ever that we anticipate the future needs of our customers if we want to consolidate the market-leading status of Paris-Charles de Gaulle in Europe. This will mean making significant improvements to the quality of service we offer in order to achieve a step change in customer satisfaction, passenger satisfaction and airline satisfaction", emphasises Pierre Graff.
On 14 March 1974, Aéroports de Paris welcomed its first passengers to Terminal 1 at Paris-Charles de Gaulle. This event marked the opening of the airport, which has since become the world's 5th largest by passenger volume, and Europe's most powerful hub.
La Galerie Parisienne is the new boarding satellite of terminal 2E at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport. It has handled nearly 2.4 million passengers since it was unveiled by the French Republic President, Nicolas Sarkozy, in June 2007. This satellite, in line with Aéroports de Paris strategy, allows the growth of handling capacity and reinforces the performance of the first European hub. It is also a showcase of the service policy of Aéroports de Paris. La Galerie Parisienne brings together technological innovations with a string of record figures: its length of 750 metres, 3 hectares of glass façade and 225,000 square metres of built up area (more than 40 soccer fields). Its steel structure weighs more than 13,000 tonnes, nearly twice the weight of the Eiffel Tower.
In a few months' time, Paris-Charles de Gaulle will be one of the first airports in the world to accommodate the new jumbo Airbus A380 on a daily basis. Aéroports de Paris has been gearing up for years to accommodate this type of aircraft and Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport is ready for the commercial operating of this aircraft, exceptional in many ways.
Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport will undergo a phenomenal expansion over the next two years, one driven by necessity and increasing passenger numbers, but shaped by a commitment to design. Marc Noyelle discusses how Aéroports de Paris is blending function and aesthetics to create an airport of the future.
