PRESS RELEASE14 January 2020 Aéroports de Paris SA
Paris Aéroport handled a total of 108 million passengers in 2019, an increase of 2.5% compared to the previous year. Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport welcomed 76.2 million passengers (+5.4%) and Paris-Orly Airport 31.9 million (-3.8%). Traffic increased by 4.8% over the 1 half of the year and by 0.5% over the 2 half. The decrease of Paris-Orly traffic is notably due to the closure for works of Orly's main runway (closed on July 28 and reopened since December 2), as well as the effects of the bankruptcy of the airline Aigle Azur, which ceased its activities as from the evening of Friday, September 6.
Passenger traffic at TAV Airports, 46.1%-owned by Groupe ADP, decreased by 32.6% in 2019 to 105.2 million passengers.
