Charles De Gaulle - 3rd Runway

Tue Oct 19, 1999 11:54 am

I recently read an article about Charles De Gaulle airport that included something about opening two additional runways, to have a total of four. However, the article was not recent, and it didn't specify the exact date for the opening of the new runways. Does anyone have information about this? Has any of the two runways been already built? What is its location?

Thanks a lot in advance - AM.

Hello,

The third RWY has been opened in february and is used mainly for landings.

The fourth will be opened in 2001.
