Another Record Year for Aroports de la Cte dAzur

The Aroports de la Cte d'Azur (ACA) Group has reported another record year, with 46,000 movements processed at its three airport hubs, Nice, Cannes and Saint-Tropez. The tonnage of aircraft increased by 3.4%.

There is also good improvement in helicopter traffic that generated a growth of almost 2% in 2015 with about 54,000 movements.

New infrastructure was built in 2015, commissioned in early 2016, with a terminal dedicated to helicopter passengers to facilitate their transfer and develop connections to scheduled commercial lines.

The airport also welcomed the arrival of a new high-end operator to run the scheduled line between the Principality of Monaco and Nice Cte d'Azur Airport, sharing its high level of service requirement.

Cannes Mandelieu Airport significantly improved its aircraft reception capacity by raising tonnage which allows it to receive aircraft of up to 35 tonnes.

Significant progress has been made in the development of the group's ground handling business (FBO - Fixed Based Operator), through its Sky Valet subsidiary. The Sky Valet premium service is now present at Le Bourget Paris, Madrid, Barcelona, Palma, Ibiza, Valencia, Gerona, Santiago de Compostela and La Corua; and in the near future at Malaga too.
