Tremblay-en-France (French pronunciation: [tʁɑ̃blɛ ɑ̃ fʁɑ̃s] (listen), literally Tremblay in France) is a commune in the north-eastern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 19.5 km (12.1 mi) from the centre of Paris.

More than one-quarter of Charles de Gaulle Airport lies within the territory of the commune of Tremblay-en-France, in particular terminals 2A, 2B, 2C and 2D (the other terminals lie in the territory of other communes). It is the largest, by area, of the so-called petite couronne (inner ring) suburbs of Paris. The corporate head office of Air France and OEMServices lie within Tremblay.

History[edit]

Originally called Tremblay-lès-Gonesse (meaning "Tremblay near Gonesse"), the commune was officially renamed Tremblay-en-France (meaning "Tremblay in the pays de France", see Roissy-en-France for an explanation) on 20 August 1989.[3]
