France to reconsider plans to build 4th terminal at Paris CDG airport
[PARIS] The French government will reconsider plans to build a fourth terminal at the Paris Charles de Gaulle airport because of the impact of the coronavirus crisis, Transport Minister Jean-Baptiste Djebbari said on Tuesday.
"The project to receive 40 million more passengers by 2030 is probably no longer justified as it was planned," Mr Djebbari said on Europe 1 radio.
He said French airports would still need investment for upgrades and would have to make sure that new types of planes, such as hydrogen-powered planes, can land.
