Annecy

VINCI Airports and the Haute-Savoie administrative department have signed the concession contract for Annecy Mont-Blanc Airport.

Under the contract, VINCI Airports will hold the concession for Annecy Mont-Blanc from 1 January 2022, for 15 years and be tasked with its management, operation, promotion and development.

The new concession will focus on two main goals, namely an investment programme to enhance quality of services, and an ambitious environmental policy for the airport.

VINCI Airports will support the expansion of business and leisure air travel at Annecy Mont-Blanc with an investment plan amounting to €10 million, jointly funded by the Haute-Savoie administrative department. This investment plan will focus on three main areas: modernising the runway, enhancing quality of services (entirely revamping the terminal) and rolling out an ambitious environmental policy to speed up the airport’s ecological transition.

The main environmental measures will include energy retrofits in the buildings, setting up photovoltaic panels for self-consumption, replacing light bulbs with LEDs, installing electric vehicle charging stations, replacing ground support vehicles with electric ones and pushing ahead with Annecy Mont-Blanc Airport’s initiatives under ACI’s international programme aimed at reaching net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 at the latest. VINCI Airports will also adjust landing fees according to aircraft CO2 emissions, as it is already doing at several other airports in its network across France.

Annecy Mont-Blanc Airport will be able to rely on VINCI Airports’ expertise in business aviation, in particular through the VINCI Airports Executive Handling label to certify high quality of services. It will also benefit from synergies with the other airports that the group operates in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region (Lyon-Saint Exupéry, Lyon Bron, Chambéry Savoie Mont Blanc, Grenoble Alpes Isère and Clermont-Ferrand Auvergne).

All the airport’s current staff will join the wholly owned VINCI Airports subsidiary handling the Annecy Mont-Blanc Airport concession.
