Charles de Gaulle airport abandons terminal 4 plans

Published on : Monday, February 15, 2021

The French government has recently announced that it has decided to abandon plans to build a new terminal at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. Authorities have mentioned that the decision has been undertaken due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the changing environmental priorities of the government.


A fourth terminal would have allowed the airport to handle up to 40 million extra passengers a year. France has radically changed its transport priorities, with airport developments now requiring plans for electric or hydrogen-fuelled planes. Charles de Gaulle airport, which opened in 1974, is the second busiest airport in Europe after London Heathrow, with more than 76 million passengers passing through in 2019.

Augustin de Romanet, Chief Executive, Aéroports de Paris, said in a statement that air travel must accelerate its energy transition and the airport must draw the proper conclusions from this in future projects. He said that following the request to Groupe ADP to abandon the current Terminal 4 project, as well as to submit a new project for the evolution of the Paris’ Charles de Gaulle platform, Groupe ADP is engaging in a period of reflection on the airport’s future concerns. He also mentioned that the Parisian platforms have a vocation in becoming the leaders in green aviation, for the benefit of all stakeholders, and in particular the territories neighbouring the airports.
