New UM lounge at Paris-Orly


This weekend, Air France will carry over 7,000 UMs (unaccompanied minors) on departure from its Parisian and provincial airports.


Young passengers at Paris-Orly with connections on an Air France flight within Metropolitan France or to the French Overseas Departments will be able to discover their new dedicated lounge. Under the watchful eye of Air France staff, they have access to Playstation3 consoles, regularly renewed games, manual activities and even books and DVDs to watch on a flat-screen.


Open all year round, this new lounge located at Orly West terminal, hall 2, can accommodate UMs between the ages of 4 and17.


Close to 380,000 UMs including 330,000 between the age of 4 and 11 and 50,000 between the age of 12 and 17 travel on Air France every year.

Approximately 70% of UMs travel within Metropolitan France and to the French Overseas Departments. From the age of 2, they can join the Flying Blue Jeune and Flying Blue frequent flyer programmes.


At Paris-Charles de Gaulle, during the school vacation period, another 200 sq. m. lounge (located at terminal 2E) accommodates UMs with connections of over 2 hours. When they have short connections, they are accommodated in a UM area at the S3 boarding satellite.
