ADP has published passenger traffic figures at its two Paris airports of Orly and Roissy-CDG during the summer.
In July and August, Roissy-CDG and Orly welcomed 10.8 million passengers.

Augustin de Romanet pointed to the “considerable” economic consequences of this drop in the number of air passengers on ADP, whose turnover should fall

It had fallen by 80% in 2020. The group has initiated a major social plan which provides for the departure of 1,150 employees, including 700 not replaced.
