Operations resume at Clermont-Ferrand Auvergne Airport after runway repair and conformity work

Air activity at Clermont-Ferrand Auvergne Airport resumed this morning, Tuesday, September 1, following the completion of repair and upgrade work on the runway that began on June 21.

This work meets the requirements of European certification standards recommended by the French Civil Aviation Safety Authority (DSAC). Carried out by Eurovia, the work included, among other things, repairing the runway, resurfacing and widening the stabilized shoulders, requiring the closure of the main runway from August 2 to 31.

Some of the work is continuing in September, with no impact on traffic. These include the installation of daytime markings, illuminated signs and lighting.

The first passengers arrived yesterday morning at 10:30 a.m. on an Air France flight from Paris-Charles de Gaulle.

Nicolas Pelerin, Director of Clermont-Ferrand Auvergne Airport - VINCI Airports, said: "We are very pleased that the work was carried out according to schedule, so that we can once again welcome our passengers. The renovation of the runway is essential for the development of the airport, especially the air cargo activity, and will allow us to welcome all types of aircraft without operational constraints."
