VINCI Airports assumes operations of Annecy Mont-Blanc Airport in France

The company will operate the airport for 15 years and will support the business and leisure aviation activities.

VINCI Airports has announced taking over the operations of Annecy Mont Blanc Airport (NCY) in France on 1 January 2022.

Last July, VINCI Airports signed a public service delegation agreement with Haute-Savoie Departmental Council in this regard.

With this takeover, VINCI Airports has now extended its network to 12 airports across France.

The company will not only operate the airport for a period of 15 years but will also support the business and leisure aviation activity with an investment plan of $11.2m (€10m).

This investment plan will be co-financed by the Haute-Savoie Department.

VINCI Airports president and VINCI Concessions CEO Nicolas Notebaert said: “Annecy Mont-Blanc Airport, which specialises in business and leisure aviation, plays an important role in the attractiveness of the Alpine region.

“As a new operator with strong environmental ambitions, VINCI Airports will demonstrate its know-how in Annecy to make aviation more sustainable at all types of airports, in conjunction with its delegating authorities and the areas where it is located.”

The investment plan will focus on further improving services for passengers as well crew members by redeveloping the business terminal and through the renewal of the runway.

Through its environmental policy called ‘AirPact’, VINCI Airports also plans to speed up the airport’s environmental transition.

The firm’s environmental roadmap for the airport will focus on reducing the usage of fossil fuels.

It aims to accomplish this by developing photovoltaic (PV) energy and buildings that are energy-efficient, switching to electric runway equipment as well as light electric aviation.

By implementing its plan, VINCI Airports intends to reduce carbon emissions at Annecy Mont Blanc Airport and achieve net-zero emission by the end of this decade. Last September, Vinci Airports agreed to work with Airbus and Air Liquide to promote hydrogen usage at the airports with an objective to decarbonise the aviation sector.
