With 66 million passengers coming through it each year, Roissy-Charles-De-Gaulle airport is Europe’s second largest and busiest hub. Every day, up to 1800 aircraft land on or take off from its four landing strips at a record pace of one plane every 30 seconds during peak time¾an impossible feat without the help of the best in cutting-edge technology: the runway lights that guide the airplanes safely to the ground, the navigational system that ensures they land and take off even in minimum visibility, the push-back tugs, enormous 50-ton tractors that push and pull the aircraft from gate to landing strip, the state-of-the-art scanners that screen over 1,200 bags per minute to detect the possible presence of even the slightest explosive…. A fascinating glimpse into how Roissy-Charles-De-Gaulle airport is able to welcome, check in and board over 230,000 passengers a day with as little turbulence as possible.
