Groupe ADP inaugurates new Orly terminal

Groupe ADP has inaugurated the new 80,000m² ORLY 3 junction building at Paris-Orly airport.

Paris airport operator Groupe ADP inaugurated the new ORLY 3 junction building at Paris-Orly airport on 18th April, in the presence of French prime minister Edouard Philippe, minister of transport Elisabeth Borne and Groupe ADP CEO Augustin de Romanet.

ORLY 3, with a surface area of nearly 80,000m², links the former Orly South and Orly West buildings. It comprises a public departure hall with its check-in counters, Schengen and International inspection area, commercial area, boarding lounge and arrival itineraries, connecting flight area, baggage delivery, baggage handling system, etc.

The ORLY 3 boarding room can handle four long-haul or eight medium-haul aircraft on 4 "mixed" aircraft stations, which makes it more flexible. Half of the boarding lounge can also be used in "dual status" mode: Schengen or International, depending on operational needs.

Until now, Paris-Orly airport comprised two terminal buildings and six boarding halls. From now on, in order to ensure efficiency, simplification and fluidity for passengers, the airport has a single terminal and four boarding halls. 

The transition began on the night of 18th to 19th March with a change in the name of the terminals. After 58 and 48 years of operation, respectively, for Orly South and Orly West, the name of the historic terminals of Paris-Orly airport has been modified with the creation of the new junction building linking Orly South and Orly West.

The former Orly West becomes ORLY 1 and ORLY 2, the junction building in the centre is ORLY 3 and the former Orly South is now designated ORLY 4.
