Paris Airports is to lay the foundation stone of the new terminal 2G (T2G) at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport which will handle flights operated by Air France’s three regional subsidiaries, Brit Air, City Jet and Régional, starting in the autumn of 2008.
“This new complex conforming to High Environmental Quality (HEQ) standards will provide passengers with easy access to a 1,800 sq. m boarding lounge. A large area will be dedicated to shops and services », stated Pierre Graff, Chairman and CEO of Aéroports de Paris.
Chairman and CEO of Air France, Jean-Cyril Spinetta added: “Terminal 2G is one of the key elements in the Air France hub development strategy at Paris-Charles de Gaulle, which aims to optimize the quality of ground services in the main Paris hub as well as enhance our customer relationship”.
Terminal 2G, located next to terminals 2E and 2F and their S3 boarding satellite, will handle Schengen flights operated by Brit Air, City Jet and Régional.
Customers arriving by car will have access to a car park with 750 parking spaces adjoining the terminal, while customers with connecting flights will be able to use the shuttle service linking the different terminals. Check-in, security checkpoint formalities and access to the vast boarding lounge will be fast and easy due to the very short distances to cover. A total of 20 aircraft can be gate-parked and accessed by the lounge. Moreover, terminal T2G will be equipped with 6 remote parking stands.
The services available to customers in terminal 2G will reflect Air France and Paris Airports’ firm commitment to offering passengers greater autonomy as soon as they enter the check-in area and right up to boarding. The latest new technologies will be integrated, to offer clearer signposting for example, and passengers will enjoy quiet, restful surroundings thanks to recommendations by a specialist in airport interior design and decoration.
