Paris-Orly, the airport near Paris
Paris-Orly, located 10 kilometres south of Paris, is France's 2nd largest airport in terms of traffic and welcomed 31.9 million passengers in 2019. Serving 128 destinations in 48 countries, the airport has a large, diversified and constantly expanding direct medium and long-haul air offer, contributing to the attractiveness and international influence of the southern Paris region. A significant proportion of its traffic is handled by low-cost airlines.
Major modernisation work has unified the former South and West terminals, so that today the airport consists of a single large terminal with four check-in areas: Orly 1, Orly 2, Orly 3 and Orly 4.
The upgrading of the airport's terminal infrastructures and services, combined with the economic and tourist attractiveness of the southern Paris Region basin, are all assets likely to attract new direct air services that complement those of Paris-Charles de Gaulle, particularly to the main global markets with strong growth potential (Asia, Africa, the Americas).
Home to nearly 28,360 direct jobs, the airport is an integral part of an economic hub with more than 157,400 employees, including the Rungis market of national interest, Sogaris (a semi-public limited company of the Rungis bus station) and the Belle-Epine shopping centre.
