A strong signal, international activity, with a 4.1% increase, enshrines this new key stage in the development of the second airport in France.

Meanwhile, the Aéroports Côte d'Azur Group has proposed a 2.5% drop in its winter airport charges* as of November 2016 for regular commercial aircraft. These charges will then be frozen for at least 9 years, confirming the Group's commitment to competitiveness.

Another highlight, the Aéroports de la Côte d'Azur Group has planned record investments in 2016 (> € 75 million) dedicated to the renovation of its two terminals, offering an ever more high end passenger pathway together with improved quality of service, on its three platforms of Nice, Cannes and Saint-Tropez.

More than ever, Nice Côte d'Azur Airport is playing its key role as an economic spearhead working for the showcase territory it represents.

"As for Commercial Aviation, our mission is to convince airlines to develop direct connections, point to point, to our territory in order to multiply the economic benefits. The announcement of the Summer 2016 programme later this month will confirm this.

Over and above the achievement of this milestone, which is a simple intermediate stage, we must welcome the commitment of the teams in our Group but also all stakeholders contributing to the attractiveness of our territory, in France, the Principality of Monaco and Italy", commented Dominique Thillaud, Chairman of the Board of the Aéroports de la Côte d’Azur Group.

* Airport charges for regular commercial aviation: landing, transit and parking of aircraft.
