Paris-Orly Airport Closes a Second Terminal


Orly airport, Paris’ secondary hub, was forced to close it’s terminal 4 on February 15, 2021, due to a reduction in demand. The final straw was the closure of French borders to non-EU passengers beginning January 31, 2021.

It is the airport’s second terminal closure since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing air transport crisis. Terminal 1 will be decommissioned on November 11, 2020. Terminals 2 and 3 are presently the only ones open at the airport.

According to A√©roports de Paris, Roissy-Charles de Gaulle (CDG), Paris’ principal airport, got 70.8 per cent fewer passengers in 2020 than in 2019, while Orly Airport (ORY) had a 66.1 per cent reduction (ADP).

The French government halted the plans to build a new terminal, T4, at Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport in early February 2021, citing environmental concerns and reduced flight traffic. ADP is anticipated to submit a new expansion project that will adhere to the authorities’ environmental criteria.
