PARIS TRAVEL GUIDE
Indicatively, Disneyland can be reached from there in 10 minutes and Lille and Brussels approximately in 1 hour. The airport is also known by the name “Paris Roissy” and has 3 modern terminals that offer passengers all possible facilities and services. The 3 terminals are connected by bus and serve roughly 200.000 passengers every day. Terminal 1 handles international flights, excluding the ones of Air France. Terminal 2 serves flights of Air France and of other airlines that travel to Europe. Finally, Terminal E9 serves exclusively charter flights. Today, the airport handles the majority of flights to and from Paris, along with the international ones.

The name of the International airport “Charles de Gaulle” comes from the national leader of France Charles de Gaulle, who was head of the French armed forces during World War II and President of the French Republic in the time period 1959 to 1969.

Works for the reconstruction of the already existing “Aeroport de Paris Nord” began in 1966 and were completed in 1974, when the airport began to operate officially. Upon the completion of the work, the airport was renamed Charles de Gaulle, thus replacing the old name “Aeroport de Paris Nord”. The airport took its current form thanks to the architect Paul Andreu, who designed the new Terminal 1. The airport was redesigned in a circular form, with an avant-garde design for its time. It has ten floors and is surrounded by seven buildings. The same architect remained in charge for every prospective extension of the airport in the following years.
