First phase of Terminal 1 refurbishment completed at Charles de Gaulle airport.
The first phase of a refurbishment estimated at EUR240m has been completed at Terminal 1 of Charles de Gualle airport in Paris, France.
According to The Associated Press, the refurbishments are designed to ease check-in lines and speed up the delivery of luggage to baggage holds in the 31-year-old terminal, increasing its annual capacity from 10 million to 12 million passengers.
As a result of the improvements the terminal will provide travellers with redesigned check-in counters and an automated baggage handling system.
The renovation is scheduled for completion in 2009 and has been taking place in four phases to enable the terminal to stay open.
