AIR FRANCE'S NEW 'FREIGHT' INSTALLATIONS AT CHARLES DE GAULLE AIRPORT AT ROISSY, FRANCE

The paper describes a new type of airport freight installation designed for greater mechanization on the runway side. The cargo dock, as it is called, enables continuous loading and unloading of large aircraft, made possible by raising by 5 m the zones of mechanized stock and introducing a mechanized conveyance path between these zones and the aircraft bridge, that takes into account the variations of height and inclination of the aircraft. Special liaison bridges are described.
