Orly airport is considered the second largest airport in France given the huge number of passengers. In 2010, there were 25,203,639 passengers.
It is located fourteen kilometres south of Paris near Orly, it is divided into two terminals: the south and west terminals and has three runways.
This airport is dedicated for domestic flights, flights to the Maghreb, the Middle East and the French overseas departments and territories.
Inaugurated on May 23, 1909, it was the first organized airfield in the world, and played a very important role during the First and Second World Wars.
The Orly Sud terminal building faces the runways in a bar more than 700 metres long, consisting of a 200-metre main building and two side jetties. It is 70 metres deep. This provision limits the walking distance for travellers to 300 metres.
The Orly West terminal has two separate levels, the first floor used for boarding and the ground floor for arrivals. Then, the distribution in the hall allows the passenger to quickly find his boarding counter.
Paris-Orly airport is close to the A6 motorway and the A86 motorway, which has led to economic activities around the airport and makes it easy to transfer from the airport to other municipalities.
Your transfer can be made by the most cost-effective and comfortable way: rent a car.
If you are with your family, the car that rhymes with space and comfort is the MPV and if you love sturdy cars for nature’s exploit, I suggest the 4×4.
