Recently, in partnership with the Confucius Institute at the University of Poitiers, Air France launched a Chinese New Year event at Charles De Gaulle Airport in Paris on the theme of “Celebrating Chinese New Year and sending red envelopes for the Year of the Goat”.

To celebrate Chinese New Year, Charles De Gaulle Airport was decorated with traditional Chinese lanterns and colorful ribbons with Chinese New Year posters hanging in every corner, creating a delightful festive air. The ground staff and cabin crew were sending out New Year red envelopes attached with greeting cards and mascots to passengers.

Charles De Gaulle Airport is known as the biggest airport in Europe with a total volume of approximately 100,000 passengers arriving and departing every day. As a place with high density of passengers, Charles De Gaulle Airport is set by both Air France and the Confucius Institute at the University of Poitiers as a platform to broadcast Chinese culture, aiming at helping more people engage with and know more about China. Additionally, passengers can read the bilingual version of Confucius Institute magazine in both Chinese and French while waiting for their flights in the terminals.
