NICE CÔTE D"AZUR ANNOUNCES EIGHTH SUCCESSIVE YEAR OF TRAFFIC GROWTH
Nice Côte d'Azur Airport has become one of the first airports in the world to announce its 2018 traffic figures, the French gateway handling a record 13.8 million passengers (+4.1%) last year.
The airport says that its eighth successive year of growth has consolidated its status as France’s "second-largest airport platform".
“Our ambitious partnership policy with the airlines has enabled us to continue to reduce the seasonal effect that has traditionally conditioned our activity," emthuses Dominique Thillaud, chairman of the Board of Aéroports de la Côte d’Azur.
"The reduction of fees in the winter season is a strong signal that is unique in France and acts as a source of additional flows."
Exponential international growth
Last year, international flights carried more than 9 million passengers, up 4.8% on 2017, while traffic on domestic flights grew by 2.8%.
While Europe, and the United Kingdom in particular, remain the main places of origin for visitors, long-haul connections are fuelling arrivals from the east coast of the United States or the Gulf states.
To ensure that it is capable of maintaining the upturn in traffic, in June 2018, Nice Côte d’Azur unveiled plans to extend Terminal 2, ultimately adding six more aircraft stands capable of accommodating long and medium-haul services.
A carbon-neutral group
In 2016, Nice Côte d’Azur became the first French airport to receive level 3+ carbon-neutral accreditation in ACI's Airport Carbon Accreditation, and last September they were joned by two other airports in the group, Cannes-Mandelieu and Golfe de Saint-Tropez.
In order to strengthen its policy to protect the environment and the appeal of the region, in Nice, the group also contributed €12.6 million to the project to extend the tramway.
“This new connection with the city symbolically closed a year that saw the development of our network and the fruits of our various actions in favour of the environment," concluds Thillaud.
