From Thursday, 28 June 2012, passengers flying with Air France and its SkyTeam partners will experience the new boarding satellite at Paris-Charles de Gaulle terminal 2E - the S4.

With a capacity of 7.8 million passengers every year, the S4 increases the competitiveness of Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport in terms of long-haul traffic and the quality of service offered to passengers.

Aroports de Paris has paid particular attention to the atmosphere, the shopping areas, passenger channels and the materials used. Light and spacious, the S4 offers passengers 6,000 sqm of boutiques, bars and restaurants and 25,000 sqm dedicated to the boarding lounges, the equivalent of 128 tennis courts.

A museum will also shortly be opening at the satellite, presenting original works from famous museums in Paris.

The new Air France lounge, at the heart of the S4, offers Business class passengers 3,000 sqm of space designed by Brandimage in association with the designer No Duchaufour-Lawrance.

Inspired by a park, customers can rest, have something to eat and drink, work, read and relax in various atmospheres.

A hot meal service has been added to the selection of cold snacks and drinks available at all Air France lounges.

A Clarins well-being area invites passengers to relax before a flight, and wi-fi access, digital tablets and computers are available if they wish to work in peace.

By investing 580 million euros in this new satellite, the airport has taken a major step in terms of quality of service and is taking Paris-Charles de Gaulle to a new dimension with one main objective: to become passengers preferred hub, said Pierre Graff, Chairman of Aroports de Paris.

Alexandre de Juniac, Chairman and CEO of Air France, added, The launch of satellite S4 and the largest ever Air France lounge marks a turning point in the history of our hub. In these times of transformation for our airline, we are reconfirming our ambition to offer our customers airport service which is among the best in the world. We are continuing to invest to guarantee all our passengers even more efficiency, fluidity and quality of service.
