LAUNCH OF NEW LOUNGE AT PARIS-CHARLES DE GAULLE

As of Thursday June 28, passengers flying with Air France and its SkyTeam partners will be able to discover this amazing new satellite with a Parisian feel, designed by Aéroports de Paris.

Light, space, easier passenger channels

With a capacity of 7.8 million passengers every year, the S4 is a welcome addition to the Air France hub and also increases the competitiveness of Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport in terms of long-haul traffic and the quality of service offered to passengers.

Aéroports de Paris has paid particular attention to the atmosphere, the shopping areas, passenger channels and the materials used. Light and spacious, the S4 offers passengers 6,000 sq. m. of boutiques, bars and restaurants and 25,000 sq. m. dedicated to the boarding lounges, the equivalent of 128 tennis courts.

Water walls designed by Taro Suzuki, wooden patios, plant walls inside and out, trees, this building, certified "High Environmental Quality", has many original creations. A museum will also shortly be opening at the satellite, presenting original works from famous museums in Paris.

The new Air France lounge, a place for relaxation

At the heart of the S4, Air France welcomes Business class passengers in its brand new 3,000 sq. m. lounge designed by Brandimage in association with the designer Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance. Inspired by a park, customers can rest, have something to eat and drink, work, read and relax in various different atmospheres.

In this haven of peace, a hot meal service has been added to the already existing offer of cold snacks and drinks available at all Air France lounges.
A Clarins well-being area invites passengers to relax before a flight, and wi-fi access, digital tablets and computers are available if they wish to work in peace.

"By investing 580 million euros 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.
