Following a speech from the French Prime Minister last night (May 28) confirming the second stage of deconfinement in France, airports around the country are preparing to reopen in June.

A speech given by Prime Minister Edouard Philippe has confirmed that France will begin its second stage of deconfinement with increased travel freedoms from June 2.

Airports across France are now planning to reopen to commercial travellers flying to destinations within France and in Europe this June.

Currently the 100km travel imposed in the first stage of French lockdown has been lifted, meaning travel throughout France will be possible from June 2. However, restrictions on travel outside France will remain in place until at least June 15, when it is expected travel to European countries will be possible.

In a Tweet, the Prime Minister wrote: “Inside Europe, the epidemic is slowing down. France will look favourably on the reopening of interior borders in Europe from June 15, if the health situation permits, with no quarantine for visitors from European countries.”
