Paris-Orly airport reopened on 26 June

After being closed to the public for over two and a half months, Paris-Orly airport reopened its doors on 26 June 2020. A gradual restart of facilities and services will take place while improving the airport's infrastructure. These operations start with the Orly 3 area

Paris Aéroport is delighted with this excellent news and looks forward to welcoming you back!

Return to tourist flights

Closed since 31 March, Paris-Orly airport continued to receive medical evacuations, diversions and government flights throughout this period. A number of vital functions (security, safety, energy, maintaining, etc.) were continued and preparations were made for the resumption of air traffic. 

Throughout this period, Paris Airport and airport staff were mobilized on a daily basis to facilitate your return and that of the airlines.


Paris-Orly is welcoming you again...

The first area to welcome you since 26 June is the Orly 3 area. Orly 1, 2 and 4 will see their reopening possible as soon as demand increases. 

Since 26 June, several destinations in the Schengen area (Malaga, Budapest, Catania, Faro, Ibiza, Reykjavik, Lisbon, Madrid, Olbia, Porto, Palermo, Seville and Warsaw) and in France, such as Corsica, Cayenne, Fort de France, Pointe-à-Pitre or Saint-Denis de la Réunion, will be served. 

As of 1 July, the number of destinations is expected to change considerably and expand with other countries such as Albania, Germany, Algeria, Croatia, Canada, Ivory Coast, Greece, Israel, Lebanon, Morocco, the United Kingdom, Tunisia, Turkey and the United States.

... and in complete safety

And in order to protect you, we have implemented several special measures with the airlines (adaptation of procedures to security control to limit physical contact, reinforcing procedures for disinfection and cleaning with a virucidal product, barrier gestures, etc.), to guarantee you a safe travel all along the passenger itinerary.
The Government and Paris Airport as well as the airlines have put in place a set of controls and health measures to protect you and others.
