Grenoble Alpes Isère airport, ready for the resumption of passenger traffic, announces the opening of a route to Porto operated by Ryanair

After a period of restricted mobility in the context of the fight against Covid-19, the 45 airports of VINCI Airports located in 12 countries have been reopening their doors to passengers for the past few weeks.

At Grenoble Alpes Isère airport, the introduction, on August 3, of a new line to Porto operated by Ryanair will boost economic activity. Throughout the year, two rotations per week will link up these two airports in the VINCI Airports network. 

Concessionaire of Grenoble Alpes Isère airport, VINCI Airports has implemented new health measures throughout its entire network to ensure the protection of passengers and employees. By supplementing the airline protocols, these measures allow the gradual services recovery in the best conditions of safety. At Grenoble Alpes Isère airport, hydroalcoholic gel distributors will be made available to passengers. Cleaning and disinfection of spaces and equipment will be reinforced, hygiaphones have already been installed at the various counters, and a physical distance device will also be set up in the queues by means of ground markings. 

Wearing a mask will be mandatory (from the age of 11). During the very first days of the resumption of traffic and in order to settle this new habit, masks will be graciously offered to passengers who do not have any. 

Mobilized in recent months, in particular for the transport of caretakers and medical equipment, the airport is continuing its mission to serve the Isère region and its inhabitants with the resumption of passenger traffic. 

Basma Jarbouai, Director of Grenoble Alpes Isère Airport, declares: "The airport has ensured the continuity of its public service missions in recent weeks and kept the airport in the best possible condition. We are very pleased today to announce this new line to Porto, which was much awaited locally. This resumption of commercial activity at the airport is taking place in compliance with the highest health safety standards".
