Boosting air traffic
Since growing air traffic means increased revenues not only for airlines but also for airports and the communities they serve, we go all out to increase traffic at our network of airports around the world. We have been proving our expertise in partnering with airlines to increase traffic and open new routes while ensuring sustainable growth at our airports.
We have developed an innovation strategy focusing on three areas: smart infrastructure, passenger experience and - at the crossroads between the two – flow management.
Robotic valet parking
A world first at Lyon-Saint Exupéry airport, where robotic valet parking is being trialed at the P5 long stay car park in partnership with Stanley Robotics.
Facial recognition technology
25 seconds: the time it takes to go through border control thanks to the new gates equipped with facial recognition technology
Test & learn
In 2018, 14 innovation projects were tested or used at Lyon
A virtuous circle
Year after year, project after project, and at our own pace, we have demonstrated our ability to create value over the long term. From our first concessions to our most recent acquisitions, we have shown know-how in all aspects of airport management.
Over €4 billion: that is the value of work planned by VINCI Airports in the next 5 years to scale up capacity of such large infrastructure and continuously adapt to technological progress.
These investments enable us to anticipate the traffic development, airline marketing being a key part of our success. Our international network of experts works in close partnership with over 250 airlines to identify potential new routes and encourage sustainable traffic growth.
We believe airports are places for people – without passengers, they would not exist. This customer-focused state of mind permeates all of our activities: renovating infrastructure for smoother passenger flow, reorganising leisure spaces and retail areas for a more seamless experience to improve comfort and make it easier for people to move around the airport.
To meet these objectives and improve continuously the passenger journey, we rely on innovation and digital tools and deliver an impeccable customer experience that sets ourselves above the competition.
