Terminals 2A and 2C Renovated At Paris-Charles de Gaulle
The new 178,680 sq ft (16,600 sq m) connecting building will allow passengers to travel through the airport more quickly and more comfortably.
After checking in at one of the terminals, passengers will be directed to a large area on the ground floor of the new building where they will go through police and security checkpoints. The new process centralizes security checkpoints and reduces the time required to pass inspection.
Once passengers have completed the security check, they will advance to the first floor of the building, a large retail area. The first section of this floor that passengers will pass through is in the style of a department store, followed by an “Avenue” of luxury stores and restaurants. The Avenue is modeled after the Avenue Montaigne in Paris.
The full renovation of Terminals 2A and 2C will be completed by the end of 2013, and will also include a new boarding lounge, arrivals hall, and other public areas.
