Runway snow clearance: Aéroports de Paris relies on new technologies

Between the night of november 23 and morning of november 24, as early as 0.30 a.m., about forty Aéroports de Paris employees will be testing new high-performance snow clearing machines as well as a new state-of-the-art real time information system.
With its five Boschung RWY new vehicles, Paris-Charles de Gaulle reduces by half runway snow clearing time as well as the number of snow clearing machines necessary. A dual runway (a take off runway and a landing runway) can hence be cleared in 45 minutes instead of 90.

Star Alliance Lounge to open at Charles de Gaulle Terminal 1

Star Alliance and Aeroports de Paris have signed an agreement which will see the construction of a Star Alliance Lounge in Terminal 1 at Paris’ Charles de Gaulle (CDG) Airport. Under this accord, which is part of the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the two parties in March 2005, Aeroports de Paris will select the space and be responsible for building the shell of the lounge, while Star Alliance will be in charge of the interior design and fitting as well as the day-to-day running of the facility.

The 800 square metre Star Alliance Lounge will be situated across two levels of the main terminal building and is scheduled to open in spring 2008. Once in operation, it will primarily accommodate First and Business Class as well as Star Alliance Gold Card customers travelling on those Star Alliance member carriers from Paris – CDG1 who do not have their own dedicated lounge facilities. It will be the Alliance’s fourth Lounge built in the Star Alliance design; the other three being located in Los Angeles, Nagoya and Zurich.

The Star Alliance-branded check-in areas in Halls 1 and 4 are conveniently located one level above the CDG VAL station at CDG 1, immediately to the left and right of the escalators leading up from the platform.

The CDG VAL is a free automated people-mover which now links Terminal 1 with car parks PR and PX, Terminal 3 / Roissypole / Local Train Station and Terminal 2 / TGV High Speed Rail Station. The CDG VAL runs every 4 minutes, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It is not only a great improvement for passengers wishing to connect to and from the trains to Paris, but has also simplified connecting between Terminals 1 and 2. The CDG VAL covers a distance of 3.5 kilometres in eight minutes, compared to 25 minutes needed by the former shuttle busses.

As the overall refurbishment of CDG Terminal 1 has progressed, Star Alliance has continued to implement its “Move under one Roof” strategy at its largest non-home market airport. Eighty percent of all Star Alliance carriers operating out of Terminal 1 are now collocated in the same or adjacent Star Alliance-branded check-in area. Once the redevelopment is complete by mid 2009, all Star Alliance member carriers serving Paris – CDG will operate from Terminal 1. This includes Air Canada, Austrian and SWISS who are presently still operating from Terminal 2A, 2D and 2B respectively.

In addition, Asiana, Star Alliance’s member airline from Korea, will commence service on the Paris to Seoul route in spring 2008. Future member carrier Air China, is already operating from Terminal 1 and EgyptAir and Turkish Airlines are considering moving their operations from Paris – Orly Airport to Charles de Gaulle.

In total, 12 Star Alliance member carriers along with three regional members operate some 75 daily flights to 30 destinations in 16 countries from CDG Airport, making it the largest single destination served by Star Alliance carriers outside their home markets.

Aéroports de Paris
Estimated 2008-2012 investment programme:
Three years of stable investments (2008 to 2010) before starting on S4

Paris, 20 December 2007

[...]

The estimated 2008-2012 investment programme covers:
• The opening of the terminal 2E passenger boarding area in March 2008 and the 2G regional terminal in September 2008 at the Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport, completing the installations of the CDG2 hub to meet the expected increase in passenger traffic,
• Construction of satellite S4, which is scheduled to open in third-quarter 2012. At this stage, the cost of the satellite is estimated at 500 million euros (2008 euros), excluding the baggage sorting system, for an estimated capacity of about 7.8 million passengers,
• Renovation of the South terminal of the Paris-Orly airport (reconfiguration of international traffic flows), and the CDG 2B and CDG1 terminals and satellites at the Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport,
• Ongoing efforts to adapt production facilities, to bring equipment and systems up to standard, improve the quality of passenger services and optimise existing facilities,
• The launch of a major real estate development programme for a total investment of over 250 million euros for the period 2008-2012 (excluding real estate diversification activities after 2010), notably the extension of the FedEx base at the Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport and the new Coeur d’Orly business district,
• The work on construction of the extension of the East baggage sorting system (E- TBE)(2) which is stated to be delivered after 2012. Studies on this programme are in preparation and the start-up should happen in 2013.

Through the 2008-2012 investment plan, the Group will continue to develop the passenger handling capacity of the Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport, whose capacity could exceed 80 million passengers by 2012. Over the next five years, the Group plans to increase capacity by 19.3 million passengers, from the current level of 61.6 million passengers (3).

Details of the investment programme as well as the presentation made to the Economic Advisory Committee of the Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly airports are available on the company’s website at:
http://www.aeroportsdeparis.fr/Adp/e...Presentations/

(2) As planned, the E-TBE extension will be located under the Galerie Parisienne and the future S4 satellite.
(3) Excluding La Galerie Parisienne, the existing terminal capacity was increased to 53 million passengers from 47.1 million through operational productivity gains. La Galerie Parisienne created additional capacity of 8.6 million passengers in 2007.

New layout for international passenger circuits at Orly South

The Orly South renovation programme completed in 1999 did not extend to international circuits. With higher traffic and tighter security, these circuits have fallen in efficiency: arrivals routing occupies a large proportion of the boarding area; the shopping zone is located upstream of the security controls and partially removed from the natural passenger route; baggage claim service quality on arrival is often unsatisfactory owing to the conveyor configuration; and the assignment of boarding gates and plane parking locations is over-rigid.

To solve these problems, the whole of the customs-controlled area of Orly South is to be redesigned, with major modifications to passenger routing and the shopping area. This operation, which brings high potential for improvements to the customs-controlled shopping area, will run from 2006 to 2008 and cover the following main items:
- Security control areas located upstream of shopping areas.
- Arrivals flows rerouted and arrivals barrier shifted to free up most favourable area for shops and services, with full separation of incoming and outgoing flows.
- Relocation and extension of shopping areas.
- More plane slots accessible to Boeing B747-400.
- New building housing extension to international baggage claim and immigration control room.

With departure and arrival controls relocated, the terminal’s east jetty will become a single boarding room.

These in-depth changes will bring a significant improvement in passenger service quality, with more fluid traffic, larger waiting areas, and improved services in customs-controlled areas.
Startup
Staggered from mid-2007 to April 2008.
Description
- Around 3000 square metres extra space for new shops and waiting areas.

- Emigration control (8 desks) and security (12 screening units) relocated to level 2, accessible to passengers via vertical routing.

- Three new wells at level 1, leading to ground floor for direct access to immigration control waiting area.

- Baggage claim conveyor long enough for largest planes, with no-return system compliant with new security regulations.

T2G Regional Terminal

Quote:
Paris-CDG T2G Regional Terminal

Function

Regional traffic, carried by 50- to 100-seater planes, is increasingly important for the CDG hub, as regards both existing capacity and potential volume. Airline companies compete vigorously for inter-European passengers, and are eager to offer suitable facilities consistent with this commercial interest.

At Paris Charles de Gaulle, incoming and outgoing passenger flows for this type of flight require carriage to remote plane areas at CDG Terminal 2, a situation that is not conducive to service quality or regularity.
A special terminal —CDG 2G— is therefore to be built for Shengen-zone passengers travelling on 50- to 100-seater planes. This terminal will be complementary to the existing facilities at the Paris Charles de Gaulle hub.


Startup

First half of 2008.

Description

Schengen-zone terminal measuring 20,500 square metres, for pseudo-contact accommodation of 20 planes of type ERJ 170/195, plus six remote plane stations, giving a total capacity of around three million passengers.

The terminal is designed for total separation of incoming and outgoing flows, and operates synergistically with CDG Terminal 2 via a shuttle service.

Reconstruction of Terminal 2E jetty

Function

Terminal 2E of Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport is made up of three buildings: a central building handling check-in and luggage claim, the boarding jetty (a huge waiting-room area) and an isthmus linking the two.
The terminal was opened to the public in June 2003, then shut down after partial collapse of the boarding jetty on 23 May 2004. Since then, the central body and the isthmus have been reopened, for access to temporary boarding facilities.

To ensure long-term safety for this unit, Aéroports de Paris decided to rebuild the whole boarding jetty roof. The existing roof will therefore be taken down and replaced by a new metallic arch structure.

Description

This operation includes the following tasks:

- Demolish and rebuild roof.

- Refit shopping area.

- Adapt terminal to traffic conditions: additional passenger services, additional security measures, and upgrade to certain functionalities on basis of experience in building usage prior to collapse.

Makeover for CDG Terminal 1

Function

CDG Terminal 1 has undergone no major renovation since it was opened in 1974 with the Paris Charles de Gaulle airport itself. Faced with aging installations and the difficulties raised by obsolete systems, Aéroports de Paris launched a vast renovation programme in 2002, scheduled for completion in late 2008.

The programme has three main objectives: re-establish satisfactory conditions for handling passengers and baggage; provide passengers with spacious, comfortable facilities; and simplify and fluidify passenger circuits.


Startup

Last phase scheduled for completion late 2008.


Description


The operation seeks to improve general operation of airport facilities:

- Flow reorganization (linear, check-in, transit).

- Improved baggage handling: automatic sorting, high-reliability routing, shorter claim times, and minimum connection time (45 minutes).

- Improved overall quality: appearance, signposting, lounges, new services, facilities for handicapped persons, etc.

- Security: baggage screening, flow separation, access control.

It also covers upgrade of technical systems (fire prevention, smoke removal, networks, etc.).

The programme is broken down into a preparatory phase followed by four successive phases in the public zones of the central building.

"Cœur d'Orly", new international business district: Aéroports de Paris selects the architecture and urban design firm.



Aéroports de Paris selected, on 22nd November 2006, the Devillers & Associates / Brochet-Lajus-Pueyo architecture and urban design firms to design the project of the new "Cœur d'Orly" international business district.

Further to a call for bidders launched in April 2006, Aéroports de Paris short-listed six teams.

They developed and handed in a draft on the outcome of a consultation which took place from June to September and to which elected representatives and local authorities were invited to take part. The design presented by the Devillers Associés / Brochet-Lajus-Pueyo pool proposed an ambitious project well-connected with its surrounding in the "Pôle d'Orly" area.

The architecture and urban design pool must now detail its planning project and the specifications intended for future real estate developers.

The objective of Aéroports de Paris is to create a first international business district over 15 hectares which could notably include office buildings, an international congress center, a four star hotel and a services and shopping mall. The "Cœur d'Orly" project will develop around the former national route 7 and will be accessible thanks to existing (RER, VAL) or future (Villejuif Juvisy Tramway, TGV) transport services. In the long run, Aéroports de Paris has a land parcel of more than 100 hectares to fully develop this business district.

Owner of the largest airport estate in Europe, Aéroports de Paris group has made the promotion of its property capital one of its major development targets. The group owns 1,247-hectare real estate of which 369 hectares are unbuilt and available.



"Orly pole" area in brief

* - 3rd employment pool in the Ile de France region with nearly 63.000 jobs
* - 2 departments : Essonne, Val de Marne
* - 9 towns : Rungis, Thiais, Orly, Villeneuve-le-Roi, Athis-Mons, Paray-Vieille-Poste, Morangis, Chilly-Mazarin, Wissous
* - 2 town clusters : Les Hauts de Bièvre (Wissous and 6 towns in Hauts de Seine), Les Portes de l'Essonne (Athis-Mons, Paray-Vieille-Poste, Juvisy)

CDGVAL: Aeroports De Paris Inaugurates the New Automated People-Mover of Paris-Charles De Gaulle Airport

Tuesday April 3, 01:10 PM

By Business Wire




ROISSY, France Pierre Graff, CEO & Chairman of Aeroports de Paris inaugurates today CDGVAL, the new automated metro of Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport. Following the tradition, a private visit is then planned for staff. As from tomorrow, the new metro will be accessible to passengers.

CDGVAL is a free driverless train meant to facilitate inter-terminal transfers for passengers and the 85 000 employees of Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport. It links the 3 terminals of the airport, RER-TGV stations and long-term car parks. CDGVAL covers a total distance of 3.5 kilometres in 8 minutes (against 25 by bus).

The line has 5 stops: Terminal 1 -PR car park - Terminal 3 Roissypole -PX car park- Terminal 2 train station.

" With CDGVAL, Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport offers now a real link between terminal 1 and terminal 2. Faster, it will hence facilitate inter-terminal transfers for our passengers while respecting the environment ", states Pierre Graff.

Unique in Europe: CDGVAL benefits from a two-way automated pilot

This new automated people-mover is unique in Europe as it is the only one to benefit from a two-way automated pilot. CDGVAL can run on the same track from one end to the other of the line (which can be handy for maintenance).

CDGVAL: at the service of passengers

Besides its fastness, CDGVAL offers a regularity without equivalent as a train is available every 4 minutes. It is also very reliable as it runs 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. For optimum safety, the platforms in each station are equipped with automatic doors which open only after the train stops. It is hence impossible to go down on the tracks.

To make the journey more pleasant, a flower trail has been created along the train line. Rare species of flowers have been planted. Passengers can hence, at blooming season, gaze at Japanese azaleas, magnolias, white wisterias...

Environmental assets

Beyond its technical characteristics, CDGVAL is also a 100% electric means of transport. The replacement of twenty shuttles will avoid the emission of nearly 15 tonnes of nitrogen oxide and a little less than 2 500 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year. It will also allow a substantial saving of nearly 750 tonnes of diesel oil.

Internationally renown partners

Siemens (builder of Lille, Rennes or Chicago metros) built CDGVAL. Aerosat, common subsidiary of Siemens Transportation Systems and Keolis (leading operator of automatic metros in France) will be in charge of operating CDGVAL.

www.aeroportsdeparis.fr

Aeroports de Paris (Paris:ADP) builds, develops and manages airports including Paris-Orly, Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Le Bourget. Aeroports de Paris is the 2nd European airport group in terms of airport turnover and the 1st European airport group in terms of cargo and mail. Aeroports de Paris accommodates nearly 460 airlines, mainly the major actors of air transport.

Benefiting from an exceptional geographical location and a major trading area, the group's strategy is to modernize its terminal facilities and to upgrade its quality of service. It also intends to develop its retail and real estate business. In 2006, Aeroports de Paris Group had a turnover of 2,076.8 million euros, its net income amounted to 152.1 million euros and it handled 82.5 million passengers.

There are plans to replace the terminal 3, which is currently a warehouse-like building dedicated to charter flights and low-cost carriers, with a bigger, more conventional terminal.

No, there's still space for a large terminal in the north-eastern part of the airport. The airport covers 32.38 km² (12.5 sq miles). Eventually the airport is scheduled to reach 120 million passengers a year by the 2020s. Then, either they build the long announced third international airport of Paris, or they build two new runways north of CDG (i.e. they enlarge the territory of CDG).
