Index – Abroad – Paris Airport has got a new name

From Saturday, for a week, the visual identity of the largest airport in France and the sixth largest in the world will change, and it will remind us that a society that embraces people with disabilities in order to better integrate into society can only be created through the participation of all, the Foundation wrote in a statement.

The temporary name change will be visible on the exteriors of Terminals 2A and 2B and on the interior of Terminals 2E and 2F. Passengers on flights from francophone countries will be greeted in French and English at Paris Anne de Gaulle Airport by KLM Air France crew.

The temporary renaming of the airport is a historic and unprecedented tool in our terminals to draw attention to our French and foreign travelers for the necessary education for the institution and the cause it represents.

said Augustin de Romany, president of the Paris Airports Council, in the announcement.

According to Jean Vendreau, President of the Anne de Gaulle Foundation, “It is time for a paradigm change to better support people with disabilities, but also for the progress of society as a whole.” The youngest daughter of Charles and Yvonne de Gaulle, Anne de Gaulle (1928-1948), was born with Down syndrome. The foundation that bears his name was founded in 1945 by his parents to support people with disabilities.
