Air France-KLM shares a little firmer: Air France leaves Paris Orly Airport

In view of falling demand for domestic flights, Air France is moving all flights to Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris from summer 2026 and is leaving Orly Airport.

In Paris Charles de Gaulle there will be a better connection between international and domestic flights, while Paris Orly will be served by the low-cost subsidiary Transavia, as Air France announced on Wednesday. Between 2019 and 2023, domestic traffic from Orly fell by 40 percent, and return flights on the same day even fell by 60 percent. The reasons are declining business trips because companies are increasingly relying on video conferences and switching to trains for environmental reasons.

For Air France travelers from Germany bound for Paris, the change means little change. As a rule, flights now fly to Charles de Gaulle Airport. But if you fly on to other destinations in France, you will have a direct connection there in the future and save yourself the time-consuming transfer to Orly Airport.

On EURONEXT, Air France-KLM shares were temporarily 0.1 percent weaker at 12.122 euros on Wednesday.
