Terminal 2E, Charles de Gaulle Airport, ParisParis-Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG) – also known as Roissy – is the world’s sixth busiest airport and Europe’s second busiest airport. In 2009, nearly 58 million passengers passed through CDG.

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.
