Atlantia puts 1.5 billion into Airports Côte d'Azur
It also includes development of French vertiports to start from Nice
Atlantia Group's top management has announced that it will invest in the airport management company Aéroports de la Côte d'Azur to improve the environmental sustainability of the airports, and to maintain and modernise them. The money will go to the three controlled airports of Nice-Côte d'Azur, Cannes-Mandelieu and Saint-Tropez-La Môle.
"We will invest 1.5 billion Euros by 2044 in Côte d'Azur airports, all of which will be zero-emission by 2030. Nice is the second most popular tourist destination in France, after Paris. Our goal is to increase the level of passenger traffic from the pre-pandemic 15 millions to well over 20 millions by 2044", said the company's CEO, Carlo Bertazzo, in an interview with French newspaper "Les Echos".
In addition, the manager said that the company has opened a branch of Urban Blue in Nice to promote a project to build and manage vertiports to develop drone-taxis services.
