Vinci Airports reports 2018 traffic growth

Vinci Airports’ network handled a total of 195.2 million passengers in FY 2018, a 6.8% increase from the previous year.

Vinci Airports’ network handled a total of 195.2 million passengers in FY 2018 (6.8% more than in 2017). This figure is expected to reach 240 million after the integration of London Gatwick. This follows other expansion moves announced in April.

Highlights included an 8.9% increase in trafic at Lisbon airport to an all-time-high 29 million notwithstanding space limitations. This was the larest increase in the Vinci Airports network in 2018.

To be able to accommodate traffic growth until the concession expires in 2062, Vinci Airports and the Portuguese government signed an agreement on 8th January to finance a €1.2bn expansion of Lisbon’s airport capacity, both by the extension of the existing facility and the opening of a new civil airport in Montijo, 25 kilometres away from the city centre.

In France, traffic at the 12 airports under Vinci Airports management jumped 9.4%, to 19.9 million passengers, including 11 million at Lyon-Saint Exupéry and Lyon-Bron airports (+7.4%); and 6 million at Nantes Atlantique Airport (+12.9%).

In the U.S., traffic at the five airports that Vinci Airports has been operating under concession or management contracts since September 2018 reached 9.5 million for the full year (8.7% more than in 2017).

Positive results were also reported from Kansai, Japan (+3.7%) and Cambodia (+20.1%), where traffic exceeded 10 million for the first time ever.
