Paris Orly airport has unveiled a major revamp which has seen the former South and West Terminals brought together under a single building layout now branded Orly 1-2-3-4.
A new junction building, known as Orly 3, has created a single terminal building, allowing customers to travel between all areas of the airport under one roof.
There are now four departures areas – Orly 1, Orly 2, Orly 3 and Orly 4 – with “easier and rationalized circuits for passengers with connecting flights”.
Around 5,000 sqm of Duty Free shopping has been added with the opening of the three-level Orly 3, along with new restaurants and lounges.
Air France will operate mainly long-haul flights from Orly 3 (although selected short-haul services will depart from here), with the rest of the carrier’s short-haul departures leaving from Orly 1.
Other carriers using Orly 3 include Pegasus Airlines, Level and British Airways, although note that BA is suspending its route between London City airport and Paris Orly from the end of May.
The work is part of a project which will see the new Gare Aeroport d’Orly rail station added “at the heart of the airport” by 2024, which will see the journey time between Paris Orly and Gare de Lyon to 23 minutes.
