Aéroports de Paris and Air France at Paris-Charles de Gaulle

Air France and Aéroports de Paris have unveiled plans to make Charles de Gaulle airport more user friendly.  To do this, they have come up with a collaborative programme, Hub 2012, which it is claimed offers a complementary approach to passenger service.  Key to the programme is a new Business Class departure lounge at terminal 2E, satellite 4, opening later in the summer this year.  It will be dedicated to long haul flights and wide-bodied aircraft and accommodate up to 7.8m passengers per annum.

At the end of 2012, terminal F will be reconfigured to accommodate only flights dedicated to European traffic.  Passengers from the Schengen area will use dedicated easier and faster connecting channels.

Aéroports de Paris will also be innovating with new services in a large area devoted to shopping and relaxation.  Before the end of the year, satellite 4 will see the launch of a museum exhibiting original works of art.  There will also be an airside service area of 4,500sqm located in the ‘Galerie Parisienne’ (satellite 3).  This will be dedicated to connecting passengers and will include a hotel. www.aeroportsdeparis.fr www.airfrance.com
