Development news

la Tribune, 26/01/2010 :
Quote:
Un satellite neuf ouvrira en 2012 et les vieux terminaux seront rénovés. La première tranche d'un nouveau terminal de 30 millions de passagers est prévue en 2024

[...]

DP va donc combiner des travaux de développement (nouveau satellite S4 d'embarquement à l'aérogare 2E, d'une capacité de 7,8 millions de passagers par an, prévu pour fin 2012), et la rénovation des terminaux les plus anciens. Ceci pour uniformiser dans toutes les installations la qualité de services des nouvelles infrastructures. Sont notamment prévus le "relooking" des terminaux A et C à l'aérogare 2 (CDG2), fin 2015, ainsi que la rénovation des zones d'embarquement de CDG1 et CDG2B, censée être achevée respectivement début 2014 et fin 2015. La capacité de Roissy sera alors de 82,2 millions de passagers. Pour éviter une situation surcapacitaire, le terminal 2D (8 millions de passagers) sera fermé fin 2012, pour rouvrir en 2019, une fois rénové totalement.

Au-delà, la direction prévoit la construction d'un terminal 4 au nord de Roissypôle d'une capacité de 30 millions de passagers. Une première tranche (9 millions de passagers), réservée aux compagnies extérieures à l'alliance Skyteam (celle d'Air France), pourrait ouvrir vers 2024. Ce qui donnerait lieu à des premiers flux d'investissement dès la période 2016-2020. Un deuxième VAL, un métro reliant tous les terminaux, est également prévu en 2024.

À Orly, Aéroports de Paris compte achever la rénovation des halls 3 et 4 d'Orly Ouest mi-2015, puis le hall 1 en mi-2019. Et un nouveau satellite international à Orly Sud pourrait entrer en service fin 2020.
http://www.latribune.fr/entreprises/...de-roissy.html


In summary, future developments of Paris-CDG :
  • S4 satellite (Terminal 2E) in 2012
  • Renovation of terminals 2A and 2C by 2015
  • Renovation of the boarding areas in terminal 1 and terminal 2B by 2014/2015
  • Renovation of terminal 2D in 2012-2019
  • New terminal 4 (30 Mio passengers) : first phase in 2024 (9 Mio passengers)
  • Second internal metro line (Val) by 2024

Developments of Paris-Orly :
  • Renovation of halls 3 and 4 in Orly-Ouest by 2015
  • Renovation of hall 1 by 2019
  • New satellite for Orly-Sud by 2020

CDG is a very disorganized mess. Are there any plans to revamp the airport so that connecting passengers have a chance at navigating the place?

Aéroports de Paris résiste à la crise

[...]
750 millions d’euros vont être investis dans différents projets. A partir de la fin de l’année 2012, l’ouverture du satellite 4 va dégager des capacités et permettre à Aéroports de Paris de fermer le T2D et le T2B par moitié pour rénovation. Elle va également construire un bâtiment entre les terminaux 2A et 2C qui améliorera la qualité de service dans cette zone, notamment par l’installation de 2 400m² de commerces.

Les satellites du terminal 1 vont également être refaits, à présent que les travaux dans le corps du terminal sont achevés. Les façades et les linéaires vont être ravalés.
[...]

http://www.aerocontact.com/actualite...ise~09640.html
So, after the opening of satellite S4 in 2012, terminals 2B and 2D will be renovated in two phases, terminals 2A and 2C will be linked by a new building providing in particular new shopping spaces and finally boarding satellites of terminal 1 will be renovated inside and outside.

ADP’s Graff Defends $2.9 Billion Airport Upgrade Amid Slump

By Laurence Frost

June 4 (Bloomberg) -- Aeroports de Paris SA will resist pressure from airlines to scale back a 2.4 billion-euro ($2.9 billion) Paris airport expansion, even though the economic crisis means the new capacity won’t be needed for a decade, Chief Executive Officer Pierre Graff said in an interview.

The ADP chief, currently negotiating an increase in fees at Paris Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports to fund the 2011-2015 investment, acknowledged objections from carriers including EasyJet Plc, Europe’s second-biggest discount airline.

“EasyJet says we’re over-investing, but on the other hand, if we didn’t go ahead with this we wouldn’t get around to upgrading their terminal,” Graff said today at the company’s Paris headquarters.

As part of its plan to upgrade Charles de Gaulle and generate more retail business, the company is spending 560 million euros on a new terminal, Satellite 4, to boost total annual capacity by 7.8 million passengers to 80 million. Graff said he expects 2010 traffic to match the levels recorded last year, when the airport handled 58 million passengers, about 70 percent of its post-expansion capacity.

“We understand there’s a need for refurbishments, but we don’t believe the traffic forecast justifies the construction of a new terminal,” Francois Bacchetta, head of EasyJet France, said in an e-mailed response to questions. “The level of investment is too high for what’s actually needed.”

Design Showcase

Due for completion in 2012, the new terminal will feature heated marble floors, fountains, greenery and high-end furniture intended to showcase French design, the 62-year-old Graff, chairman and CEO since 2003, said today.

The company will have spent 1.3 billion euros in more than a decade upgrading terminal 2E, used predominantly by Air France and its SkyTeam alliance partners, and adding the two so-called satellites. EasyJet’s adjacent terminal 2B base, part of the original 1981 building, isn’t due for a revamp until 2015.

No additional construction will be needed for 10 years, Graff said. “In terms of pure capacity needs we could have postponed the new terminal,” he said.

The decision to press ahead reflected tougher competition for stopover passengers from London Heathrow’s two-year-old Terminal 5 and a revamped Madrid airport, the CEO added. “We didn’t really have a choice -- even with less traffic we need Satellite 4 to boost our service quality and improve as a hub.”

Discussions are already under way over the planned increases to ADP’s airport charges, which have to be approved by France’s transport and finance ministries after consultations with airlines.

The Conseil d’Etat, France’s highest administrative court, in March rejected a challenge by two groups of airlines including Air France against ADP tariff hikes implemented from 2006 to 2010 with government approval.

The airport operator, which suspended this year’s agreed increase in response to the crisis, wants to raise its rates by an average of 1.4 percentage points above inflation in the years 2011 to 2015, according to proposals it published in February.

CDG Airport development news

A interesting PDF (in French) about the development of CDG and Orly: http://services.aeroportsdeparis.fr/...spx?ideFile=25

A fourth control tower has been built in 2008 between the satellite S4 and Terminal 2G. You can find a pic from Structurae here : http://de.structurae.de/files/photos...e/p1170146.jpg

Terminal 2B will be renovated between 2012 and 2015, Departure and Arrival areas will be separated in two different levels.

Terminal 1's satellites will be renovated by 2014 (satellites 6 and 1 have already been renovated in 2008 and 2009).

The construction of the new building linking terminal 2A and 2C has started in February. Some renders :



And an excerpt from the PDF
Quote:
Objet : le projet “Jonction 2A/2C” porte sur la création d’un espace central entre les salles d’embarquement du 2A et du 2C de façon à y regrouper les fonctions de contrôle, à créer des surfaces de commerces et de services ainsi que des bureaux et des salons pour les compagnies.
Le projet comporte également le réaménagement des zones d’embarquement situées dans les terminaux A et C.

Début des travaux : 1er semestre 2009 (opérations préparatoires comprenant notamment la déconstruction de la tour Kbis)

Mise en service : 2ème trimestre 2012

Coût : 71 M€ (€ 2010), y compris part sur budget sûreté (55 M€ hors sûreté)

Description : compte tenu de la configuration des lieux, l’unification des deux salles d’embarquement est de nature à permettre :
• de traiter l’ensemble des contrôles d’émigration 2A et 2C en un seul point,
• de traiter l’ensemble des contrôles de sûreté 2A et 2C en un seul point y compris les contrôles des passagers en
correspondance, selon un système compatible IFU,
• de créer plusieurs centaines de mètres carrés de surfaces commerciales,
• de libérer des surfaces à affecter à des bureaux et à des salons compagnies ou à de nouveaux services, en zonepublique ou sous-douane selon le besoin.

Avancement : travaux de préparation du site achevés.
Signature des premiers marchés du bâtiment de liaison (gros oeuvre et lots techniques) en janvier 2010
Début des travaux du bâtiment de liaison : février 2010
In summary, opening in the second half of 2012, security checkpoints and customs will be centralized in this new building, new commercial space and lounges will be created.

A record! The building to house the boarding terminal S4 will be 770 m long.


Passageways to the next level of the building will distinguish passenger arrivals and those who are on the move.


Perspective view of the building interior.

Carpets will be essential for mechanical pacing along the building more than 700 m.


False ceilings will equip the entire building, except under the canopy.Made of methacrylate, it will feature thousands of diodes(LED) that will affect the night sky.


In low-cons of boarding space, the mall, which will be overseen by a canopy of 1,500 m2, will be the life of the building.


More than 3,300 m2 of shops, bars and restaurants are expected in the mall, who wants the image of a Parisian Department Store.


The future S4 will accommodate 16 parking positions, of which 7 will be dedicated to the A380 widebody type.


Corridor leading from the gate to the aircraft. There will be any more bus runs, which will generate savings of 1000 km in less traveled each day.


"After passing through security checks, passengers will temporarily leave the airport crossing universe" heaven's door "to enter a large commercial area."


Aéroports de Paris will also offer a range of services to passengers who will board this satellite: video games, work spaces and relax. The marble, glass walls and all the materials chosen to develop commercial space create a Zen atmosphere very conducive to relaxation and well-being. From the entrance, and throughout their journey, passengers can view all information about their flight (gate, time, travel time). "


"To create a warm, Aeroports de Paris has used the talent of a renowned colorist Alain Boni. In the departure lounge, the seats will have various colors on a row to break the uniformity. Carpeting follow it too, a color gradient. Natural materials are privileged to provide an atmosphere that is both comfortable and refined born: wood, marble, glass, etc.. "


"After registration at the terminal 2E, passengers will join the satellite 4 via an internal automatic metro line to the terminal in about 3 minutes."


"The automatic metro station, located in the central body will welcome passengers in a light atmosphere and fi ne. The escalators will be highlighted by coloring champagne passengers gather in the shops."


It is the largest area of shops and services from Paris-Charles de Gaulle, arranged around a vast central square of size equivalent to that of the Place Dauphine in Paris. This space, lit by a huge glass located 9 meters in height will extend more than 3300 square meters.


In the middle of this square, chairs and benches will allow guests to relax between two purchases. Past the dining area, a street lined with shops provide access to both wings.The design of the space has been developed by the firm Saguez & Partners.


"The gallery landing pass over the waiting rooms. Fully glazed, the gallery will allow arriving passengers to contemplate the departure lounges and shopping area before returning to their mail or delivery room luggage Terminal 2E. "

Aéroports de Paris to renovate covered car parks at airports

Aéroports de Paris (ADP) in Paris has launched a renovation programme of covered car parks at the airports under its jurisdiction.

Aéroports de Paris' Deputy CEO, François Rubichon, has stated that the airport authority is planning to renovate most covered car parks at Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly by 2011 in order to significantly improve atmosphere and orientation.

The total amount spent by the entity between 2009 and 2015 to meet customer satisfaction requirements would be approximately €750 million ($1 billion).

The renovation project will offer major changes to the car parks such as: oversized signage on the walls; colour codes to easily identify each level and the various service areas; covered paths on the floors; and signs to inform passengers about the numbers of spaces available per level, at the entrance of the car parks

The project also includes assignment of a specific icon on all levels – such as flowers, tourist sites, etc – for each terminal.

Aéroports de Paris is the airport authority that owns and manages the fourteen civil airports and airfields in the Paris area. Among its notable airports are Charles de Gaulle International Airport, Orly Airport and Le Bourget Airport.

Nope, very easy. From what I recall, there's a direct walking connection in between the two terminals from the arrivals level.

Bon appétit! Free cooking classes at Paris Airports



Passengers passing through Paris airports can roll up their sleeves and try a free, hands-on cooking class while waiting for their flight.

Cooking school, Atelier des Chefs will be teaching passengers how to whip up speciality French dishes in ten minutes – from honey glazed apple casserole to baked eggs with vegetable confit and can savour their experience by taking their dish away with them.

Franck Mereyde, Paris-Orly Airport’s managing director said he hopes the cooking class “will make the airport experience more pleasant.”

The chefs have also created a recipe for each airport: southern-style sea bream papillote at Paris Orly and salmon papillote with dill and cucumber at Charles de Gaulle.

The classes, which were offered last week, will fire up again on November 25 (Friday) to December 1 at Paris Orly’s South Terminal Departures Hall and Charles de Gaulle’s Arrivals Hall at Terminal 2F.
