The French State signed…
The French State signed on March 27th, 2010 with Aéroport de Tahiti, an Egis subsidiary, a 30 year concession contract for the development, operation and maintenance of Tahiti Faa’a airport and 5 year renewable operation contracts for Raiatea, Rangiroa and Bora Bora airports. The concession contract started on 1st of April 2010.
Through these contracts, Egis will be deeply involved in the operation of:
- Tahiti Faa’a airport with a 2009 traffic of approximately 1.2 million passengers;
- Raiatea, Rangiroa and Bora Bora airports with a 2009 total traffic of approximately 0.55 million passengers for the 3 airports.
Egis will provide experienced managers and technical assistance to Aéroport de Tahiti, in order to bring the necessary additional expertise in the fields of management, airport operation, engineering and maintenance.
The investment programme will be refined during the first months of operation and should include all the works necessary to secure the development of the airport platform and to improve the quality of service to customers.
Aéroport de Tahiti will rebuild a part of the terminal and improve the parking area. It will also strengthen the runway and create facilities to improve runway operation.
The investment plan is part of a key environmental concern for the harmonious development of the platform. The use of natural ventilation for cooling a large part of the terminal, the ‘greening’ of interior and exterior spaces and the ecological treatment of drainage water are some of the main items of a particularly innovative future airport terminal.
With this contract, Egis is strengthening its position in the field of airport management in the world (Abidjan in Ivory Coast, Brazzaville, Pointe-Noire and Ollombo in Congo, Libreville in Gabon, Pafos and Larnaka in Cyprus). Egis is now operating 11 international airports and handles 13 million passengers and 200,000 tons of freight every year.
