Aéroports de Paris press release, january 30, 2009 :
Quote:
Aéroports de Paris focuses on the quality of service and plans to invest €2,540 million between 2009 and 2013

The board of directors of Aéroports de Paris approved yesterday the estimated 2009-2013 investment programme pertaining to the Group’s regulated activities. The programme was first presented to the Economic Advisory Committee of the Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly airports on 3 December 2008. The €2,540 million investment programme (2009 euros) covers virtually all of the Group's investments. This figure incorporates investments pertaining to real estate diversification activities through 2010, since under current regulations, diversification activities will be removed from the regulatory scope as of 2011.

After investing heavily in 2006 and 2007, Aéroports de Paris entered a more moderate investment phase in 2008. In 2011, investment should peak again at €614 million due to the construction of satellite 4. Thereafter, investments should decline again.

[...]

The estimated 2009-2013 investment program covers investments as part of the Economic Regulation Agreement (ERA) for the years 2009 and 2010, as well as proposed investments for the years 2011-2013, which are subject to the final proposals from Aéroports de Paris and to approval as part of negotiations over the ERA that relates to the 2011-2015 period.

In the 2006-2010 investment programme as planned by the ERA, priority was given to capacity investment. Halfway through this programme, progress has been satisfactory:
  • Nominal passenger capacity of the terminals has been increased by over 25 million passengers, surpassing the ERA’s target of 19.6 million.
  • Services have started-up according to schedule for the main investments, namely the CDG Val airport shuttle, la Galerie Parisienne and the terminal 2E boarding lounge at Paris-Charles de Gaulle, the reconfiguration of international passenger traffic flows at the Paris-Orly South Terminal, and renovation of the first 3/4ths of terminal 1, start-up of the first phase of the East baggage sorting system and the opening of the regional terminal 2G at Paris-Charles de Gaulle;
  • At this stage, the overall amount of 2006-2010 investments is controlled: the differential between the original investment budget (€2.5 billion in 2006 euros) and the updated programme (€2.7 billion in 2006 euros) is partly due to additional allocations for real estate developments, notably €84 million for the Coeur d'Orly development, and partly to excessively low assumptions for readjustment rate.

The estimated 2009-2013 investment programme now focuses on the quality of service. It covers restructuring and improvements such as:
  • Completion of renovation work on terminal 1 of Paris-Charles de Gaulle with the March 2009 opening of the last quarter currently under construction.
  • Renovation of terminal 2B of Paris-Charles de Gaulle. Feasibility studies are currently underway and construction could begin in 2009.
  • Merger of terminals 2A and 2C at Paris-Charles de Gaulle, including the creation of a central space equipped with additional lounges, retail areas and centralised screening services. Service is scheduled to begin in H2 2011.
  • Start up of a major real-estate development programme amounting to €254 million in 2009- 20133, notably for the extension of the FedEx hub at Paris-Charles de Gaulle and the new Coeur d'Orly business district.

The programme also includes two specific capacity operations:
  • Construction of satellite 4 at Paris-Charles de Gaulle. At this stage, the cost of the satellite is estimated at €560 million (2009 euros) excluding the baggage sorting system. Additional capacity is estimated at about 7.8 million passengers.
  • Extension of the baggage sorting capacity under La Galerie Parisienne and the future terminal 4 of Paris-Charles de Gaulle.

Aéroports de Paris will continue to adapt its investment programme according to demand and traffic trends.

[...]

Aéroports de Paris: Paris-Charles de Gaulle Becomes the 5th Busiest Airport in the World

35 years after handling its first passenger, Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport is ranked 5th busiest airport in the world, according to the 2008 preliminary airport ranking by Airports Council international (ACI).

For the second consecutive year, Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport wins a position in the global ranking of airports. In 2008, it was ahead of Los Angeles airport.

Paris-Charles de Gaulle handled nearly 61 million passengers in 2008, an increase of 1.6% year on year. A total of 950 million passengers have travelled through Paris-Charles de Gaulle since its opening in March 1974. Paris-Charles de Gaulle has become the most dynamic economic area of the Ile-de France region in terms of job creation with 90 000 direct jobs on the airport site. Between 1995 and 2007, 10 jobs a day on average were created on site.

These good results are due to the numerous competitive assets of Paris-Charles de Gaulle:

- Its exceptional geographical location next to Paris and at the heart of the 2nd catchment area in Europe, with 25 million inhabitants at less than 200 kilometers from the airport.

-Paris-Charles de Gaulle accommodates the most powerful hub in Europe, the Air France-KLM hub, with 24 000 possible connections in less than 2 hours*.

-Thanks to its recent investments in the terminals at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport (La Galerie Parisienne, Terminal 2E boarding pier), Aéroports de Paris has increased its capacities by more than 21 million passengers in 2 years as well as the quality of services offered to passengers.

The 2008 ranking by ACI coincides with the total reopening of the central area in Terminal 1 unveiled exactly 35 years ago. After a 5 year overhaul, the "historical" terminal of Paris-Charles can now handle 10.8 million passengers per year.

www.aeroportsdeparis.fr

Aéroports de Paris builds, develops and manages airports including Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Paris-Orly and Paris-Le Bourget. Aéroports de Paris is Europe's second-largest airport services group in terms of airport revenues and the European leader for cargo and mail. Aéroports de Paris accommodates nearly 460 airlines, including the main companies in the air transport industry.

With an exceptional geographic location and a major trading area, the Group is pursuing its strategy of modernizing its terminal facilities and upgrading quality of services, and also intends to develop its retail and real estate business. In 2008, Aéroports de Paris Group had revenues of €2,527 million, and the company handled 87.1 million passengers.

* Possible connecting flights in less than 2 hours during a week in summer 2008.

Central nervous system of AF-KLM at Charles de Gaulle Airport shines

By Ica Wahbeh

Passing through the rigorous airport inspection now so familiar to travellers, employees and privileged visitors alike enter CCHUB, the central nervous system of AF-KLM at Charles de Gaulle Airport, responsible for the smooth traffic at this world’s fifth busiest airport in terms of passengers.

The huge hall of this control centre, surprisingly hushed because of the overhead panels that ensure phonic insulation, is a room with a view. Even the drizzle of a cold March morning is unable to dim the pleasant sight of terminals, planes and busy tarmac outside.

The window walls frame much of the activity and quite a few structures at this airport and offer the startling surprise of the taxiing plane of the “president de la republique”. Inside, the easy banter of the about 100 employees belies the stressful jobs they have: Coordinate with a myriad other entities to make sure that the traffic of passengers and goods flows efficiently and profitably.

The rows of desks, equipped with “most powerful tools and software”, explains Peter Starland, job rotation assistant at the hub communication department, are further clustered in “departments” responsible for strengthening information, coordinating with terminals, taking care of potential problems with delays, weather or security.

Computer screens display icons and images more or less comprehensible to the layperson. Most, however, is “inside” information whose seeming simplicity hides the intricacies of the whole process of securing the easy take off and landing of over 900 flights a day, of coping with the arrival and departure of 100,000 passengers and the transfer of 30,000 to 40,000 travellers served by Air France, KLM and Skyteam partners.

The rate of success of these daily transfers of passengers and luggage alike, says Starland, is 95 per cent in the summer, 98 per cent in the winter. And responsible for all this is the PTM, or the transfer department. Considering that the minimum transfer time from arrival at any one terminal is 45 minutes, it is no small feat.

The “regulation bord a salle” department, or short transfer, for the layman, is responsible for checking arrivals to make sure passengers who might arrive late make it on time to the connecting flight. Transport, in this case, is carried out by vans, with priority given to businesspeople and young children.

The software computers at this section are equipped with alerts technicians in case of delays, for decisions and action to be taken ahead of time.

To ease such operation further, Aeroports de Paris works with the police, who have a “department” in the hub, to make sure immigration officers and X-ray technicians are promptly at hand.

For an additional taste of the complex coordination this centre is involved in, the visitor can even see the “correspondent servair” employee occupy a place among the sections, responsible for syncronisation with the catering truck.

The cargo is treated with equal care by the “correspondent fret” who collects his information from the Amsterdam hubway.

This centralised coordination is taken care of by 50 employees in the mornings and 30 in the evenings. And if initially one section only was responsible for it, now three departments take care of boarding, crew, freight, plane arrivals, working with special software – PACT – based on the GPS system, which enables one to see who is doing what in real time.

Other departments are responsible for communication and security follow up or for the flow of passengers and luggage. The Traffic Flow Management System software helps quantify (in terms of money) the decisions taken – in case of delays, transfers or other occurrences. The “decideur operationel” is the final judge and decision maker, however.

On a screen, intelligible patches reproduce the movement of planes. Blinking and moving ever so slightly, they look like animation figures of a computer game, fascinating yet being nothing like the innocuous moves of the virtual world. One small mistake could be dangerous, even fatal, so the employees in this “regulation parking” section undergo a six-month course to ensure that the decision Air France takes for all 900 planes parking at the 180 stands is judicious and safe. This is also made possible by the permanent connection with the control tower.

The CTP department has four missions: Former mechanics are employed to help the hub control manager take decisions regarding technical problems on the plane; the weatherman continually checks the Internet for forecasts; the department moves 1,800 planes on the ground every month; it comes up with reports for all dents and damages undergone by planes on the ground, where about 60 per cent of the minor incidents (truck-plane collisions, mostly) happen, costing companies over $60 million per year.

Manpower and tools are concentrated at the hub, centralising information and securing a better coordination which ensures that operations run seamlessly, says Communication Officer Africa and Middle East Christine Hensley.

The tour over, this visitor has to board an Air France plane back home, secure in the knowledge that somewhere down there, responsible people are watching.

Aéroports De Paris, JCDecaux and LCI Launch a New Information Programme at Paris Airports

Aéroports de Paris and JCDecaux (Paris: DEC) have selected LCI, the information television channel to provide their passengers with a new information service that will be broadcast on more than 300 Aéo screens, the first television channel dedicated to the passenger/airport relationship.

From April 7, the 237,000 daily passengers travelling through Paris-Orly and Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport will be able to access the essential news of the day through this new service. This will include:

- national and international news

- weather reports covering France and the world

- amusing and unusual images from the "Zap Net" website

Updated with current events, the news images will be accompanied by French and English text. To avoid disruption to airport announcements, the programmes will be silent.

An information programme dedicated to passengers’ daily life:

LCI's information and entertainment programmes complement Aéo's continuous loop about life at the airport: current news, behind the scenes at the airport and new services available to passengers.

The programmes can be interrupted to bring passengers the latest airport updates (for example weather related delays) while terminal-specific guidance can be provided by Aéroports de Paris.

The agreement fits with the partners’ development strategies: LCI continues to broadcast its programmes on a range of different visual platforms, Aéroports de Paris continues its innovation policy ensuring a better quality of service and JCDecaux, through its subsidiary JCDecaux Airport, aims at engaging the passenger audience.

Pierre Graff, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Aéroports de Paris stated: "In our terminals, our clients wish to relax, to be entertained but also to remain connected to the world. This is the role of Aéo, a real proximity media for our passengers. By choosing La Chaine Info (LCI), we are responding to their need for information with a tailor-made programme. This new offer follows our complimentary magazine and our website and will enhance the information available to our passengers."

Jean-Charles Decaux, Chairman of the Executive Board and CoCEO of JCDecaux stated: With passengers spending an a hour and a half on average in a captive environment, the Aéo service at Paris airports will make waiting time at the airport even more interactive, informative and entertaining. This updated and optimised content reflects JCDecaux’s commitment to providing innovative services relating to public mobility and information.»

Jean-Claude Dassier, TF1 Deputy Director General, in charge of The Group Information: "We are pleased to have been chosen by Aéroports de Paris and JCDecaux to develop this new information service. This demonstrates once again, the power of LCI’s i brand and its programmes. We are proud to serve the 87.1million passengers who travel through Paris airports each year."

Aéroports de Paris-Nuance joint venture opens three multi-brand fashion stores at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport

FRANCE. Duty Free Paris, the joint venture between Aéroports de Paris and The Nuance Group, has opened three fashion stores at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport Terminal 2A. The stores will trade under the Attitude brand name, and cover 295sq m in total.

Nuance’s Attitude concept was developed to house key fashion brands in dedicated, personalised space within a single store.

The three Attitude stores measure 70sq m, 92sq m and 133sq m respectively, and feature brands such as Longchamp, Kipling, Samsonite, Thomas Sabo, Swarovski, Hugo Boss, Lacoste, Lancel, Sonia Rykiel, Guess and, for the first time at Paris airports, Diesel, Wolford and Doré Doré.

Each of the stores features an event space that will be dedicated to trendy French brands. The partners said the offer had been tailored to cater for passengers at T2A, which mainly handles flights to North and South America, the Middle East, the UK and Asia.

Duty Free Paris General Manager Guy Bodescot said: “Our new joint venture started up in late January by taking over nine existing stores. These three Attitude concepts now introduced are the first shops really designed and built by Duty Free Paris, our newly set-up joint venture. We are proud to showcase our ability to present fashion brands in an exciting shop environment and look forward to growing our portfolio further in the course of 2009 and beyond.”

Aéroports de Paris Chairman & CEO Pierre Graff added: "The new sales points designed by Duty Free Paris will allow Aéroports de Paris to enhance the fashion and accessories offer. The products and new brands available at Terminal 2A respond precisely to the expectations of Paris-Charles de Gaulle's international clients. By the end of the year, we will have developed these new tailored stores for both Paris airports."

Aéroports de Paris welcomes Airbus A380 first commercial flight to Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport

Aéroports de Paris welcomed early this morning a Singapore Airlines Airbus A380 at terminal 1 of Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport. At 6.38 a.m., the aircraft arriving from Singapore touched down on runway 3 at Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport.

The 450 passengers from Singapore disembarked in 15 minutes. The 326 passengers, departing on flight SQ334, and inaugurated the first flight between Paris and Singapore on board the biggest aircraft in the world, boarded in 35 minutes (including 15 minutes waiting the last minute passengers at the request of the company). The Airbus A380 was ready to take off at 12.24 pm, on time.

The arrival of the Airbus A380 at Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport took place in optimal conditions.
This success is the result of 8 years of work carried out by the Aéroports de Paris teams. The Airbus A380 had already landed three times at Paris-Charles de Gaulle to better prepare for the launch of a scheduled air service.

The arrival of the Airbus A380 is a real asset for Aéroports de Paris. It is in line with the Group's industrial strategy. Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport is the first scheduled destination of the Airbus A380 in France and is part of the major airports ready to accommodate the aircraft.

Since 2002, all the new facilities whether new runways, new taxiways or boarding lounges such as la Galerie Parisienne have been designed to be compatible with this type of plane. In parallel, existing facilities have been upgraded to meet European standards regarding the Airbus A380.

Emirates A380 to serve Paris

The French capital is the latest destination to be added to the growing list of gateways served by Emirates' popular double-decker Airbus A380.

Tim Clark, president of Emirates Airline, said the decision to put an A380 on the Paris route was a result of encouraging sales in and out of Paris Charles de Gaulle.

"Our plans to introduce this exceptional aircraft have been accelerated by almost a year which, in the current economic climate, is a major achievement."

The superjumbo will replace the morning service out of Dubai. EK 073 leaves Dubai at 0800hrs and arrives in Paris at 1225hrs from February 1, 2010.

Emirates operates a double daily service to Paris, which is currently served by a combination of Boeing 777 aircraft. In addition to the morning flight, EK 075 departs Dubai at 1500hrs and touches down in Paris at 1935hrs.

FedEx Expands French Hub
Thomas L. Gallagher

Roissy-Charles de Gaulle marks 10th anniversary with larger facilities

Marking its 10th anniversary, the FedEx Express hub at Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris opened its expanded facilities last week. With a joint investment of $158 million, FedEx and Aéroports de Paris substantially increased the number of packages and documents the hub can handle.

“FedEx is well-positioned to connect our customers to opportunities in the global marketplace”, said David L. Cunningham Jr., president, Asia Pacific, FedEx Express. “Europe is a top trading partner for many countries in Asia-Pacific, with China being its biggest trading partner and source of manufactured goods. FedEx has been a leader in facilitating trade between Asia and Europe and the Hub expansion will provide our customers here with even greater access to trade across this important marketplace.”

The FedEx and Aéroports de Paris joint investment of US $158 million in the new facilities will allow FedEx to continue to offer world-class services to its customers:

The FedEx Express European Hub at Charles de Gaulle Airport now has total floor space of 828,821 square feet. The sort area was expanded from 533,889 square feet to 775,001 square feet and can now handle 61,500 documents and packages per hour. The freight and dangerous goods area was expanded from 1,400 square meters to 13,000 square meters. The hub employs 2,600 team members and handles 300 flights per week. It is now the largest FedEx hub outside the United States.
