Paris-Orly Airport is an airport located in Orly 13 km south of Paris. I spent a day there in November of 1996 when I was in France on business and visited it with a group of Russian specialists. We had very interesting meetings with its staff and they showed us the airport, its facilities etc.
Prior to the construction of Charles de Gaulle Airport, Orly was the main airport of Paris. Even with the shift of most international traffic to Charles de Gaulle Airport, Orly remains the busiest French airport for domestic traffic and the second busiest French airport overall in terms of passenger traffic.
Later we had a flight to Toulouse from this airport and everything was arranged wonderful not speaking about a strike which forced us come back to Paris by bus, haha!
