Groupe ADP engages in a transformation project for the Paris-Charles de Gaulle platform to promote ecological transition

Published on

In an announcement made on February 11th, 2021, the Government requests Groupe ADP to present a new development project for Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport after the termination of the Terminal 4 project. Groupe ADP takes note of this request which is one of the consequences of the Covid-19 crisis.

Developments contributing to the energy transition of the airport, and of the air sector as a whole, must be thoroughly reviewed considering the increasing commitments on green aircrafts, confirmed in the Government's aeronautics support plan for a green and competitive industry, on June 9th, 2020. The crisis linked to the Covid-19 pandemic and its upheavals have lastingly impacted the traffic growth perspectives, thus questioning the schedule of passengers capacity expansion need at Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport.

A review of the initial project had been undertaken during the previous months in order to adapt to new traffic assumptions and to better address the sector's environmental transition issues. This work, led by Groupe ADP teams, will lay ground to future thinking on the development issues for the Paris-Charles de Gaulle platform.

Augustin de Romanet, Chairman and CEO of Aéroports de Paris SA – Groupe ADP, stated:
"Air travel must accelerate its energy transition. We must draw the proper conclusions from this in our future projects. Following the State's decision to request Groupe ADP to abandon the current Terminal 4 project, as well as to submit a new project for the evolution of the Paris-Charles de Gaulle platform, Groupe ADP is engaging in a period of reflection on the airport's future concerns. The Parisian platforms have a vocation in becoming the leaders in green aviation, for the benefit of all our stakeholders, and in particular the territories neighboring the airports".
