Because of border restrictions, Paris Orly airport closes its terminal 4 until further notice. For the record, the terminal has been shut already back in November and December 2020.

The aeronautic sector has been subject to lots of issues since the Covid-19 pandemic broke out. As the winter vacations have started for most people in France, Paris Orly airport terminal 4 has closed on February 15, in the evening. It will stay closed until further notice, the AFP and Le Parisien say. We must say the government has decided to strengthen border controls over the past couples of weeks. Trips to non-EU countries are banned, “excluding pressing matter”.

Jean Castex once again addressed the situation on Friday January 29, 2021 and announced new measures. The Prime Minister announced more restrictions at the borders. Therefore, starting Sunday January 31, borders with non-EU countries are closed, ”excluding compelling reasons”.

According to the latest data, only 10.8 million travelers have passed through the Orly airport in 2020, namely a 66.1%-decrease in comparison with 2019.

And this is not the first time the Aéroport de Paris group decides to close this terminal. The group already decided on doing so back in November and December 2020.

So, what to do if you have a flight to take from Orly terminal 4? According to AFP, airlines that operated there will be replaced in Orly terminals 2 and 3 – partially open. For the record, Orly Terminal 1 has been closed since November 11, 2020.
