The passenger terminal complex at Paris Orly Airport consists of Terminal West and Terminal South. The newer Terminal West with two concourses is intended for shorter flight routes, while the older Terminal South with two 2-level concourses handles most of the long-haul routes. The terminals are not connected, but are served by the free ORLYVAL shuttle (running every 4-7 mins, 4:30am to 12:30am).  
As part of Orly's redevelopment project it recently completed the South & West Terminal esplanades & approaches, & work starts on a connector building between the two terminals.
Traffic in front of the terminal is now restricted to the dropping off of passengers by taxis, shuttles only.
The 3-level P1 carpark & P3 Red are now linked to the terminal's departure level via 4 wide elevators.
With the landscaped pedestrian forecourt in front of the terminal, there is now a more spacious pedestrian area.
Public and professional traffic flows on the departures level are now separated, with a  taxi lane alongside the terminal.
The new drop-off area is free for up to 10 minutes. The PRO car park located on the arrivals levels is for buses and shuttles only.
