Here are some of the major developments currently going on at leading French airports, as well as more long-term expansion plans:


aviation’s big plans for the future


Paris Groupe ADP is currently refurbishing Terminal 2B at Charles de Gaulle Airport as well as expanding Terminal 1’s boarding halls, which are mainly used by Star Alliance airlines, for completion in 2020. Longer-term, there are plans to construct Terminal 4 at the airport, which will be built in phases between 2021 and 2028. At Orly Airport, Groupe ADP is set to commission a “junction building” to connect the airport’s South and West terminals to create a “single and unique terminal”.


Marseille Provence The airport is two years into a 10-year, ¤500 million investment programme which is due to run to 2027. Work has already included the refurbishment of terminals and a new bus station. This year, the focus is on expanding the low-cost Terminal 2, including two new aircraft parking areas and two new boarding gates, plus a multi-storey car park and cooling and heating plant to reduce the airport’s environmental footprint.


Bordeaux The airport has adopted a ¤140 million investment programme running to 2023 including six major infrastructure and service projects. These include modernising check-in and baggage systems in the low-cost terminal this year and will culminate in 2023 with the completion of a project to connect Halls A and B.


Nice Côte d’Azur Two new gates are being added at Terminal 1 for summer 2019, while Terminal 2’s expansion plan will see six new aircraft stands being opened in May, including two able to accommodate A380s. An enhanced departure lounge will also be completed in 2022.

“The Marseille Provence territory benefits from a double asset to stimulate both outbound and inbound traffic: a strong and wide local market offering favourable conditions to airlines, and a destination whose reputation and awareness is booming abroad,” she adds. Further along the south coast, Nice


Côte d’Azur has established itself as France’s largest international hub outside Paris with passenger numbers of just under 14 million in 2018. The airport has been boosted by strong growth in the past few years to destinations in Russia, Eastern Europe, Middle East and North America. Russia is a major expanding market for the airport, thanks to an increase in traffic rights between the two countries, which will increase frequencies from Nice to Moscow or St Petersburg to 39 per week. Meanwhile Air Moldova, Air Serbia and Wizz Air have launched routes to Chis


‚ina ˘u,


Belgrade and Krakow respectively. Elsewhere, Bordeaux airport is another


to benefit from Ryanair’s expansion in France. The Irish carrier will base two aircraft at Bordeaux as it adds 17 new routes from the airport – taking destinations up to 29 for summer 2019. There will also be eight extra routes for the winter season when a third aircraft is introduced at Bordeaux. Overall, the airport will see the


introduction of around 40 new services for 2019, which should set Bordeaux up for its 10th consecutive year of growth after setting a new record of 6.8 million passengers in 2018. This was fuelled by LCCs, which accounted for 55% of traffic, led by easyJet and Spanish airline Volotea. But it’s not all about LCCs, with Air Canada, Finnair and Tunisia’s NouvelAir among those introducing services from Bordeaux in 2019. In northern France, Lille will benefit from

Tui Group’s decision to base a second aircraft at the airport allowing the tour operator to serve 29 destinations this summer. Meanwhile Vinci Airports, which runs 12 airports across France, including Lyon-Saint Exupery and Nantes, saw passenger growth of 9.4% in 2018 taking total traffic to 19.9 million. This included more than 11 million who used its two Lyon airports, thanks to 25 new routes such


as Tel Aviv, Corfu, Catania and Malaga. Despite some economic headwinds

and fears about the impact of further ATC strikes – something Ryanair has already warned about – it should be another positive year for many of France’s major hubs and regional airports. 
