Decline in airport passenger trafficEdit

There was a decline in traffic after Ryanair suspended service in 2004 after a court declared that the airline had received illegal subsidies from the airport.[4]

After the opening of the first phase of the new LGV Est high-speed rail line from Paris to Strasbourg, there was a significant[5] reduction in plane usage, but since 2011, traffic at the airport has grown. However, Air France ceased to operate the route between Strasbourg and Paris-Charles de Gaulle on 2 April 2013, transferring passengers onto rail services operated as tgvair.[6] The opening of the second phase of the LGV Est in July 2016 further reduced travel time to Paris to 1:48 by train.[7]
