A?roports de Paris (ADP) handled a record 78.7m passengers at Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly airports in 2005, a rise of 4.4% against 2004.

The number of aircraft movements at 736,000 (+0.2%) was virtually identical to 2004, but passenger load factors rose from 70% in 2004 to 73% last year.
ADP?s Chairman and Ceo Pierre Graff said: ‘The increase in passenger numbers reflects the attractiveness of our Parisian airports which is established on unique strengths: an exceptional geographical location in Europe, a powerful hub associated with one of Europe's major economic areas, a matchless capacity to develop airport facilities. It also shows the necessity to invest in new terminals and new airport equipment. A?roports de Paris plans to invest more than E2.5bn ($2.9bn) over the next five years.’
ADP added that international traffic contributed strongly to the dynamism of both airports in 2005. Globally, European traffic rose by 4.2%, but ADP said that traffic to and from the 10 new European Union states increased by 10.8% and Schengen traffic grew by 4.3%.
At the same time, traffic to North Africa, the Middle East and North America increased by 8.8%. Traffic to Asia and the Middle East grew by plus 7.2%.
