Success of the 2018 Smiling Day – community spirit and cheerfulness all round at our 36 airports

This year, the 36 airports in our network took part in this day-long event, including for the first time the newly integrated airports Salvador de Bahia and Kobe in Brazil and Japan.

The Smiling Day, a key event in VINCI Airports' service policy, took place this year on 6 April (7 April in the Grenoble and Chambéry airports). Organised each year at all airports in the VINCI Airports network, this event symbolises the importance of high quality service and greeting inherent to our airports. During the day, all employees and partners, whatever their job, were encouraged to get out and meet passengers to give them a personalised, warm greeting.

This year, the 36 airports in our network took part in this day-long event, including for the first time the newly integrated airports Salvador de Bahia and Kobe in Brazil and Japan. 1340 VINCI Airports network’s employees welcomed 280,000 passengers flying in or out on 2000 flights.

Passengers also had the opportunity to participate in a contest and win flights to VINCI Airports’ destinations by posting their photos #SmilingDay18 on Instagram and Facebook, generating more than 20,000 likes.
