Modernisation projects at
Paris-Orly Airport


Groupe ADP is undertaking renovations for Paris Aéroport which include the launch of numerous major projects. The Paris airports are undergoing significant transformations and changes in preparation for the future. 
Creating a fresh look for our passengers and customers will generate new opportunities for growth for the Group and help to prepare now for the future of our airports.
Paris-Orly Airport is improving its infrastructure to continue to provide a high-quality welcome to passengers. It is also adapting to the boom in low-cost airlines








Multimodal station: Paris-Orly at the heart of Grand Paris

  • September 2018 Start of work The new multimodal station will significantly improve public transport services to the airport. The Grand Paris Express project will gradually connect Paris-Orly with the rest of Paris and the surrounding area. The capital will be accessible in 15 minutes.

  • 2021 Intermediate phase Excavation and construction of the underground levels of the bus station and commissioning of a new 10-storey P0 car park to facilitate travel around the airport. A drop-off area will be incorporated within the station.

  • 2024-2027 End of works Commissioning of the multimodal station which will ultimately help reduce congestion on the existing networks, 80% of which are currently road-based, whilst reducing traffic levels and greenhouse gas emissions associated with vehicle traffic.

Orly 4: overhaul of the international Departures passenger route

  • 2017 Start of the project This large-scale project (50,000 sq.m.) involves a complete overhaul of the international Departures process including the construction of a new building, thus making the route taken by passengers at Orly 4 smoother and more pleasant. The project will be delivered in two phases, notably to ensure the continued operation of the international hall whilst the new building is under construction.

  • 2020 Phase 1 This building will provide more space, a better quality of service and a smoother travel experience for international passengers departing from Orly 4, thanks to the creation of a new boarding lounge, a new disembarkation route and an efficient baggage sorting system.

  • 2021 Phase 2 In the long term, the reconfiguration of security and border controls by combining and increasing the number of security checkpoints in the Schengen and International halls, Border Control booths and Parafe automated passport control gates.

The 3 aims of the project

High quality passenger journey
with redefined areas and numerous check-in kiosks to significantly reduce waiting times.
New layout standards
offering exceptional levels of hospitality and services to meet new customer expectations.
More pleasant and modern spaces
with distinctive movement areas and new high-end services and shops.


One operation, two phases, three projects


The overhaul of the international Departures process at Paris-Orly is based on three complementary elements: the construction of a baggage sorting system, the creation of a new boarding lounge and the reconfiguration of the security-check and border control areas.

The operation was divided into two phases in order to keep the international hall operational whilst the new building was under construction. Thus, the security and border controls and the newly developed retail area will be delivered during the second phase. As Orly 4 was closed on 19 November due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are no immediate plans to accommodate flights in and out of this new area. However, we will be speaking to future passengers when traffic levels pick up.




Phase 1: a more efficient terminal and smoother passenger journey



Creation of a new baggage sorting system that will increase sorting capacity to 2,500 bags/hour and a 1,700 sq.m. check-in area with 26 new kiosks for an improved passenger experience.

check-in desks

A 2,700 sq.m. boarding lounge, bathed in natural light, with seating and a full range of services that meet new international standards. Its 4 boarding gates will serve 3 medium and 1 wide-body aircraft.

A 1,000 sq.m. disembarkation route to accommodate even more passengers with dedicated arrivals and transfer flows.

Phase 2: reconfiguration of checkpoints



The reorganisation of the security and border controls will considerably expedite passenger and cabin baggage checks, thanks to the creation and combining of new security checkpoints in the Schengen and international halls and the installation of 11 automated Parafe gates.
