Named after the French leader Charles de Gaulle, the airport is located about 15 miles northeast of Paris, and is the main hub for Air France.
Collapse of Terminal 2E
Busy but beautiful Terminal 2E reopened in March, 2008.
Originally opened in 2003, Terminal 2E featured an open and cutting-edge design by Paul Andreu.
On May 23, 2004, a portion of the terminal’s ceiling collapsed, killing four people.
During the reconstruction of Terminal 2E, a more traditional steel and glass structure replaced the original concrete tube style.
