Frédéric Cuvillier, French Minister for Transport and the Maritime Economy, said in the
presence of Augustin de Romanet, Chairman and CEO of Aéroports of Paris, during his
visit at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport, that the CDG Express project had been revived
through the creation of a research company that will bring together the French state, RFF
(owner and manager of the French railway infrastructure network) and Aéroports de Paris.
The CDG Express project involves the construction of a dedicated non-stop rail link
between the centre of Paris and Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport, which should strengthen
the attractiveness of the airport and, thus, France.
The research firm will aim at ensuring the feasibility and the technical, legal and financial
viability of the CDG Express link.
Augustin de Romanet, Chairman and CEO of Aéroports de Paris said:
“I welcome the commitment of the government and the personal commitment of Frédéric
Cuvillier which will today allow the CDG Express project to enter a new study phase, giving
this non-stop link every chance of seeing the light of day. This is a priority project in terms
of quality of service for passengers and competitiveness for Paris-Charles de Gaulle
That is why as soon as I took up my duties at the head of Aéroports de Paris, I ensured
Aéroports de Paris’ commitment to the success of this project.”
