Orly airport in Paris began operating on Friday with the take-off of a flight bound for Francisco Sá Carneiro airport, Porto, after a closure of almost three months due to the spread of the new coronavirus.
A plane from the low-cost airline Transavia took off at 6:25 am (5:25 am in Lisbon) making it the first connection made at the airport located in the south of the French capital, since March 31.
To mark the first connection, airport firefighters wet the device with jets of water.
The management of the running costs of air travel forced the authorities to concentrate flights departing from Paris at Charles de Gaulle airport in the north of the city.
The relaunch of air traffic will be slow and today only 70 connections are planned at Orly airport, only to European countries and to the French overseas territories.
Before the pandemic began, the airport made 600 calls around the world.
To regain the confidence of passengers, signs were installed that mark the sanitary distancing and disinfectant gel was distributed to the passengers who are measured the temperature.
