Olympics 2024 in Paris

2024 Olympic & Paralympic Games

Celebrations (and some logistical challenges)

The 2024 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games mark the return of the Olympics to Paris.

From July 26 to September 8, 2024 , thousands of athletes and hundreds of thousands of spectators will come together in Paris, making it one of the biggest sporting events in the world. Due to the significant logistical impact of the games, temporary restrictions in air and road traffic will affect our services during the Olympic Games. Please note that, in addition to the official competition days, some restrictions already apply.

Stay informed: Paris 2024 restrictions map

To stay up-to-speed, the French government has created an interactive map of current restrictions and saftey perimeters.

Specific restrictions and accessible areas are subject to change daily and are defined as follows:

  • Grey Areas: Competition venues which will be completely inaccessible.
  • Red Areas: Motorized access is allowed for authorized vehicles only. We will be able to deliver in these areas with some restrictions.
  • Blue Areas: Regulated motorized access. We will be able to deliver in these areas.

Please note that all airports around Paris will be closed during the Opening Ceremony on Friday, July 26 from 19:00 until 0:00.

Therefore, our flight services on that day will not operate in/out of the Paris region.
