From now there is no more flights Air France (or HOP!) to take you from Strasbourg to Paris/Orly.

Well, there are not many people are sad of this situation. You will find an online petition on Change.org asking to keep the commercial activity between the two airports. But the document only obtained 248 signatures on behalf of that decision.

On the social network, you can also find some tweets, far from common regret ...

TGV

Railway killed the air route ... People in Strasbourg choose TGV among HOP! to go to Paris. In 2014 130,000 passengers flew to Orly . The company anticipates a significant drop in numbers of passengers with the launch on July 3 of the second phase of the LGV Est. In the coming months, Strasbourg is now only 1h50 from Paris by train.

And employment?

Air France employees came together to Entzheim airport for the last flight to Orly. Between sadness and anxiety.
Question: what to do for the economic development of the airport? Some last month unions are concerned about job cuts. Recently, Ryanair and easyJet stopped services between Strasburg and London. There were nearly 100 000 passengers per year ... Now service between Strasbourg and Paris/Orly is stopped and you sacred clouds on Entzheim Strasbourg Airport.
In 2015, the Airport carried 1.2 million passengers. Six times less than EuroAirport Basel Mulhouse.
