Committed to being travellers’ preferred hub

Aéroports de Paris and Air France united at Paris-Charles de Gaulle to develop services at the leading European hub.

Aéroports de Paris and Air France have united their joint ambitions at Paris-Charles de Gaulle to improve the services offered to passengers, attract more international traffic and therefore strengthen Europe’s leading connecting hub.

To do this, they have come up with a collaborative program, Hub 2012, a complementary approach to passenger service.

New infrastructures and a concentration of the Air France hub 2012, year of transformation of the airport, will mark the opening of new services, including satellite 4, the new departure lounge at terminal 2E.

Representing an investment of 580 million euros for the designer and Aéroports de Paris, satellite 4 will be dedicated to long-haul flights and wide-bodied aircraft and will accommodate up to 7.8 million passengers.

This new boarding satellite will enable Air France to concentrate its activities to the east of the hub, in terminals 2E, 2F and 2G. In the long-term, the Paris-Charles de Gaulle hub will be able to accommodate close to 42 million passengers per year (compared with 34 million passengers in 2010).

This new configuration will provide Aéroports de Paris with the opportunity to reorganize new installations in favour of other airlines.
