The new S4 boarding satellite building at Paris Charles de Gaulle Terminal 2E will officially open next Thursday (28 June), increasing the airport’s competitiveness in terms of long-haul traffic and the quality of service offered to passengers.
Designed by Aeroports de Paris, the Air France S4 satellite includes 6,000m2 of boutiques, bars and restaurants and 25,000m2 dedicated to the boarding lounges, the equivalent of 128 tennis courts.
A new 3,000m2 Air France lounge for business class passengers will also open in the terminal next week, providing customers with a place to rest, eat, work read and relax in a variety of different atmospheres. The lounge will feature a Clarins well-being area to help passengers to relax before a flight and WiFi access, digital tablets and computers for travellers who wish to work in peace.
“By investing €580 million (£466.7 million) in this new satellite, the airport has taken a major step in terms of quality of service and is taking Paris-Charles de Gaulle to a new dimension with one main objective: to become passengers’ preferred hub”, declared Pierre Graff, Chairman of Aéroports de Paris.
“The launch of satellite S4 and the largest ever Air France lounge marks a turning point in the history of our hub. In these times of transformation for our airline, we are reconfirming our ambition to offer our customers airport service which is among the best in the world. We are continuing to invest to guarantee all our passengers even more efficiency, fluidity and quality of service”, added Alexandre de Juniac, Chairman and CEO of Air France.
